I am an Integrative Counsellor experienced working in G.P's surgeries and in private practice . I provide safe, confidential counselling where we can look together at what is troubling you. If you are feeling that you are struggling with something on your own having counselling and being really listened to can give you the space to be able to understand more fully your situation and the way forward.I work with people coming to counselling for many different reasons including loss/ bereavement, depression, anxiety, relationship concerns, self-esteem, work, mid-life, parenting and fertility issues. I also work with counselling students and I have worked as a tutor on counselling certificate training courses . I also offer supervision for counsellors.
HOW I WORK
I try to create an environment where you can feel safe and supported so that we explore what is concerning you. I work in a way that is non-judgmental. Whether you are struggling with a painful loss, relationship worries, anxieties about you future or feelings of depression and uncertainty, having counselling can help you feel heard and gain insight into yourself and future choices.
I have a degree in Integrative/relational counselling which means I have trained in a range of counselling theories encompassing Humanistic , Psychodynamic and CBT therapies. I believe that given the right circumstances we can all reach our full potential in life but that our past relationships can impact on how we feel about ourselves and behave in the world. Understanding more the significance of our past relationships can help make sense of what may be happening with present relationships.
Any inquiries about counselling are dealt with in confidence by email and the phone. if you decide you want to have an initial meeting I would arrange an assessment session where we can look at what has brought you to seek counselling and what it might involve. I offer both short term counselling (6-12 sessions) and more longer term open-ended counselling depending on what you might need. I offer regular reviews usually every 6 weeks to reassess where we are and the way forward.
I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and a UKRCP Registered Independant Counsellor and I abide by their code of ethics and professional practice. I am registered as a psychtherapist with major health insurance companies
