When choosing a counsellor it's more important that you find someone you feel totally comfortable with, rather than the particular theories that they use.
I work integrtively, which means that I use many different counselling theories. This enables me to work flexibly and creatively to meet the individual needs of my clients. This can all be discussed in our first session which is FREE OF CHARGE.
I have a private practice on Ashdown Forest, working with both individuals, couples and older children from 11 to 18 years. I work closely with GP's at a local surgery who regularly refer clients to me. Working as a couples counsellor and also with teenagers are areas of counselling that I'm particularly passionate about.
I also specialise in anxiety and panic attacks and I am in the process of launching a company web site to help people to overcome panic attacks. The treatment is unique and helps to address all aspect of Panic Attacks, whether it be physical, emotional or chemical. Take a look at the website www.thepecmethod.co.uk
I offer a caring, empathic and non-judgemental environment in which we can discuss any issue you may wish to bring. Together we can look at the choices available to you.
The counselling models that I work with include; Person Centred, Gestalt, Psychodynamic, Transactional Analysis and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
I have worked as a couple counsellor for over 7 years. I also enjoy working with troubled young people and have provided counselling for local schools.
