Having experienced the need of counselling in my own life, I feel that I am in a position to better understand what it takes to make that first step. I aim to provide a safe space for you, and work together at a pace that is suitable for your needs and development.
I am a qualified counsellor and a member of the BACP. I use a pluralistic approach to my therapy. This involves working collaboratively with my clients, their individuality thus incorporating shared decision making. I can work with a wide range of concerns and assist you with issues you may be facing such as anxiety, depression, trauma, addictions, stress, anger, sexual abuse and many others.
An example of this approach is discussing with you what you would like to achieve from therapy then working together to achieve the most effective way to get there.
I work therapeutically using aspects from varied approaches based on what you find to be helpful; including Person Centered, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic Therapy and Transactional Analysis.
These techniques enable me to work with a variety of concerns, and my findings are that regardless of what the concerns are that bring you to counselling, it is the relationship we build together which makes the biggest difference.
I have had experience working with both school children and adults. I worked with several troubled school children for a period of time, finding each of their personal development very rewarding. I am involved with a voluntary organisation where I counsel adults with many different and difficult issues. I continue to do this.
You can work it out, I'm here to help you achieve this!
