There may be times in your life when you have needed a bit of extra support, times that you look back at with sadness and times that you worry about in the future. There may also be times that you laugh and have fond memories and times in the future that you wish to look forward to. You may have feelings that you don't understand and occasions where you don't understand how you feel.
The aim of my integrative approach to counselling is to support you to take a step into a journey of exploration of who you are and to help you to move forward in a way that you feel is right for you. I see counselling as a journey of self-acceptance and a space for you to have for yourself in order to explore parts of your life that you are finding or have found difficult. I work using an integrative approach to therapy bringing together humanistic counselling with that of cognitive behavioural therapy or CBT.
