I offer counselling at times when life experiences can bring anxiety or stresses that impact on our well-being and relationships. At these difficult times it can be helpful to talk with someone who will listen to you as you explore your thoughts and feelings in a non-judgemental environment.
My approach to working with clients is to build an honest and trusting relationship where I can help you to talk about your difficulties and concerns. I have experience in working with a variety of issues, some of which might be difficult for a client to share, but I am able to provide a safe space for you to explore these.
I am a qualified Integrative counsellor holding Registered Membership with the BACP (Reg. MBACP). This means that I adhere to the BACP's Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions.
As an Integrative counsellor, I draw upon different ways of working with you and have your best interests in mind. This may include working creatively to help you understand your concerns through writing or drawing if this feels right in our work together, or solution-focused approaches to help you achieve your goals. I work to create a trusting relationship with you as we work together to explore difficult experiences.
i can help you with your current and past relationship issues, helping you to be aware of re-occurring patterns and unconcious processes, such as why we are attracted to a certain type of person, and how past relationships influence those in our present lives.
I have an interest in working with issues of diversity and difference, issues that might be perceived as taboo or unspeable in society or Community. I Am experienced in working with bereaved clients, and working with relationship issues, experience working with adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse and other aspects of trauma. I have experience of working with counselling/Psychotherapy students and qualified therapists.
