If you are unhappy with things in your life at the moment, then counselling can help.
I am a qualified counsellor with practice locations in Leamington Spa, Stratford and Kenilworth, offering CBT counselling and psychotherapy for clients of all ages.
My experience has proven that when we have the time to explore our feelings and past difficult experiences, in the safe and confidential environment that counselling offers, this leads to a greater understanding of ourselves and an improved sense of well-being. My approach is collaborative and I aim to work with you in an empathic and non-judgemental way in order to support you in recovering from and learning from your experiences, and making changes that enable you to move forward with your life.
I have worked with clients experiencing difficulties with relationships, depression, anxiety, stress, anger, self-harm, low self esteem, and loss, as well as many other issues. I also have extensive experience of working with adults and adolescents affected by sexual violence or abuse.
I believe that any talking therapy is most effective when you can trust and feel comfortable with your counsellor, and so I offer an initial telephone consultation free of charge, to discuss what you hope to gain from counselling and how we may work together to achieve that.
I am a member of the BACP and adhere to their ethical framework. I receive the required amount of clinical supervision to ensure that my practice is both safe and ethical. A copy of the BACP ethical framework will be available for clients and can also be found on the BACP website; www.bacp.co.uk
If you have any questions at all, then please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss them.
