Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.
I qualified as a Counsellor in 2008 and have experience of working with adults who are having difficulty with stress, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, anger, alcohol and drug abuse, childhood sexual and physical abuse, relationships, loss, health concerns, eating concerns, domestic violence, self-harm, change.
I also have experience of working with adults who have come to counselling for Personal Development, to discover more about who they are and why they have become the person they are, as well as adults who just want the chance to talk things through with someone impartial in order to gain a different perspective to their life.
The process of searching for a Counsellor can itself prove to be an anxiety provoking exercise.
There are so many Counsellors to choose from and so many different types of therapy available, where should you start?
I believe that everybody is unique and, as such, there is no single therapy that will suit all.
My training is in Integrative Counselling, which is a combination of the main theoretical approaches to Counselling.
As such I am able to adapt the techniques I use to suit you as an individual.
WHAT IS COUNSELLING
Counselling can offer you a safe, confidential setting where you can explore any concerns or feelings which are causing you difficulty.
Counselling is not about getting advice, it's about being listened to, supported and accepted.
Counselling is a process of Self-Discovery that can be beneficial to anyone, regardless of their age, race, background, religion or gender.
