I have worked as a counsellor in a variety of settings and have experience of a wide variety of issues. My core training is psychodynamic, which means that I believe many of our issues stem from our childhood experiences and relationships, and many of these influences are unconscious. Every individual is different, so the same approach is not suitable for all, and I have training and experience in other approaches, so I tend to work in an integrative way.
In our first session together, we will talk about you and your issues so I can tell whether I am able to offer to help you. You can also decide if you feel able to work with me, because it is important to have a counsellor you are happy with.
Sessions last for 50 minutes and are normally once a week. I offer both short term (usually 6 to 12 sessions) and long term work.
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their ethical framework. I am also a counselling tutor and trainer.
