I am an experienced counsellor able to work with a range of issues. Initially I trained as a person centred therapist but as my practice has developed my approach has become more integrated.
My aim in counselling is always to create a safe place for the client where they are:not judged;
able to explore how past experiences and relationships maybe impacting on their current feelings, thoughts and behaviours; and identify and explore choices. This way of working helps clients to implement changes in their lives they wish to make.
If a client has experienced a traumatic incident that is currently impacting on their life then I am able to offer Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR). This therapy can also help client's with other issues e.g. phobias, performance anxiety.
I find that my experience as a business/personal development coach can assist my counselling practice when working with clients who have work-related issues.
