I am an Integrative Counsellor and have worked extensively with adults and young people in G.P's surgeries and in Private Practice . I work with people coming to counselling for many different reasons including bereavement, depression, anxiety, relationship concerns, self-esteem, work, mid-life, parenting, miscarriage fertility issues . I also work with counselling students and I have worked as a tutor on counselling certificate training courses . I am also a qualified supervisor .
HOW I WORK
I believe that in a safe and supportive counselling relationship change can take place and that through sharing your difficulties with a counsellor you can start to recover. 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 including 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 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 psychtoherapist with major health insurance companies
