Therapy is an investment in yourself. It can be used for working through specific difficulties or issues; personal development; or aligning yourself to who you’re meant to be when life has gone off track, allowing a more rewarding and healthy way of living.
As a registered therapist with The British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) I provide a professional, confidential and relaxed service for both male and female clients, free from judgement.
I offer both short term and long term counselling. Short term counselling typically focuses on a specific issue such as a bereavement or major life change; long term counselling/psychotherapy can be open ended and is suitable for a deeper exploration and more thorough review of your life. I work collaboratively and flexibly with individuals to create an environment which enables exploration of the difficulties and challenges encountered in life.
I work in an Integrative Humanistic way, acknowledging clients have different needs, so no one single approach is sufficient. I can draw on theories from:
- Humanistic and Existential Psychology
- Person Centred approach
- Psychodynamic Psychotherapy
- Transpersonal Psychology
- Solution Focused Counselling
- Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
- Mindfulness based practice
Areas of Interest:
Although I work with a wide range of psychological difficulties and life challenges I have a special interest in working with anxiety, depression, addiction, bereavement, grief and loss, workplace stress or ‘burnout’.
I adhere to a strict code of ethics and I am regulated by the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). The ethical guidelines and practices of the BACP to which I am bound can be viewed via their website www.bacp.co.uk
