My approach is warm, empathic and respectful and I work using an integrative approach, including a Person-Centred approach, Psychodynamic therapy and Cognitive Behavioural therapy, but also incorporating other theoretical models to offer a bespoke fit to each individual client.
I offer counselling for a range of emotional issues and work with clients from any race, culture, religion or sexual orientation, working with clients on a broad range of issues on both a short and long term basis.
Working with the right counsellor is essential, in order to build a trusting and good working relationship together. After the initial no-obligation consultation, we would arrange an appropriate number of sessions, meeting on a regular basis, usually weekly. Everything discussed in our sessions is confidential (unless there is a risk of harm to yourself or others).
Counselling enables us to understand and process difficult and challenging memories and feelings from our past, utilize coping strategies to deal with problems in our everyday lives and move forward into a more positive future.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling Practitioners (BACP) and adhere to their Ethical Framework for Good Practice. I am also an accredited member of the National Counselling Society and the National Hypnotherapy Society.
All sessions are currently via a secure online platform, due to Covid-19 restrictions.
These are just a few examples of the issues counselling can help with:
