I am an integrative therapist who is open to working flexibly and drawing on a range of approaches to meet the needs of individual clients. The foundation of my practice is a person centred philosophy which guides my therapeutic stance and approach to building the therapeutic alliance. However I am also able to draw on my knowledge of psychodynamic theory to enable me to pay attention to unconscious elements of the client’s process and to reflect on the dynamics of transference and countertransference as they emerge in the therapeutic relationship.
Training, qualifications & experience
As a counsellor and also through over 12 years’ ASC (Autism Spectrum Condition) experience I have worked with many young people with behavioural issues including low self-esteem, self-harm, suicidal thoughts and feelings, anxiety, panic attacks, ASD, anger, confrontational behaviour, which in some circumstances have led them to substance misuse. I have an ongoing interest in research, most recently in the fields of mental health diagnoses, treatments and risks, including by developing healthy wellbeing through talking therapy, and also assessing the benefits of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), which supports the view that people require choices to feel empowered and to achieve the best possible chance of success, autonomy and independence to improve the quality of their life, for example after a mental health diagnosis. I am a willing participant in personal and group supervision sessions, and my therapy training included the use of counselling evaluation tools and assessing outcomes.
