I know how hard it can be to find the right counsellor, so I hope the information I provide here will help you identify the one for you.
First off take heart, you are doing great – just reaching the point of admitting that you need some help is a big achievement. The next steps are all about finding the person you feel you can talk to and work with, and tackling the uncertainty around not knowing what it is you may want or need from the counselling process.
I am an ‘Integrative’ Therapeutic Counsellor – which means I have training in a wide range of therapeutic theories and techniques, which I use in a flexible way that best meets the needs of the individual client. I work with adults & young people and offer a professional & compassionate service in a safe, private environment working within confidential boundaries.The ‘Integrative’ process may include
talking about your past & childhood experiences
focusing on the here and now of your current relationships or difficulties.
using Cognitive Behavioural Techniques (CBT) - looking at thought process that impact on behaviours.
working creatively with various methods and techniques.
