About me

Hello, my name is Phillipa and I would like to thank you for taking your time to read through my profile.  

I am a fully qualified Integrative Counsellor who is BACP registered, working ethically within the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling & Psychotherapy (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy).

I have experience working with adolescents and individual adults in different settings, covering a vast range of psychological and emotional situations.

I can provide you with a comfortable and safe space, ensuring you feel heard and valued by listening in a non-judgemental manner so you can explore your own feelings at your own pace.You may have been struggling with issues for a number of years, you may be facing a current crisis or dealing with traumatic experiences from the past. You may have received other courses of treatment, counselling or therapy which you haven't fully benefited from. It may be that you feel 'stuck' in life or with a problem and want to make some positive changes or you may just simply want to be heard, valued and offload.

I work within a Person-Centred approach, which allows you to be in control as I respectfully help you to find your own solutions, unique potential and abilities, enabling you to make the most of life and its opportunities.

I can offer several other therapies depending on what you would like such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Neuro-Linguistic programming and Motivational Interviewing.

This integretive way of working gives you the choice to decide which therapy is best for you.

I can offer long term or short term/brief therapy.
