Hello, I specialise in relationship and couple counselling having worked for many years as a Relate psychosexual and relationship therapist Affairs and betrayals cause such pain but if faced honestly can sometimes lead to a deeper understanding. I am also an experienced general counsellor, offering Integrative counselling, CBT and EMDR. Issues include anxiety,generalised anxiety disorder, depression , loss , personal development, stress, post traumatic stress, OCD, abuse, low self esteem and assertiveness issues. I have a particular interest in working with Carers. I work with people at all life stages from adolescence, mid-life to older age.
. Couple counselling is a skill which requires helping couples communicate with each other, and understand how each other feels.The sexual relationship often reflects what is going on in the rest of the relationship. Other people often need help understanding themselves, and how they can make important changes to their lives. Sometimes CBT, or EMDR assists with this, and I can offer both. EMDR is particularly effective for flash backs, post traumatic stress and getting rid of negative feelings of low self esteem, which somehow you just don't seem to be able to shift.
I also work in a hospice and can walk beside people who are facing loss and end of life issues. Having been a Carer myself of someone suffering from a chronic terminal illness I have a particular interest in supporting carers through an often hard and lonely journey in a landscae which is entirely new, and where there are no sign posts.
I am a qualified counselling supervisor. I am a retired lecturer in counselling at a College of Technology, having taught the diploma course. I have also worked as a Secondary School counsellor. I work integratively, integrating Person Centred, Psychodynamic and CBT approaches. I am an accredited member of BACP and work to their ethical framework.
I have EMDR practitioner skills, which is an excellent way of working with Post Traumatic Stress, addictions and negative self belief.
