Highly Qualified Psychotherapist with over 10 years experience. I have an established Private Practise near Stones Green, where I believe in offering an affordable rate to make Psychotherapy and Counselling Services more accessible. My Practise is within easy reach of Manningtree,Thorpe, Clacton, Walton, Colchester, Harwich and Frinton.
I am an Experiential Psychotherapist, Person-Centred Counsellor, Focusing-Oriented Psychotherapist and Focusing Trainer. I am a member of British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists thereby work by their ethical framework of good practise. I offer a confidential space, within a peaceful location, where your experience will be received with warmth, unconditional acceptance and empathic understanding, which will enable you to safely explore and interact with your experience to find deeper meaning.
Focusing, Experiential Psychotherapy and Person-Centred Counselling together form a gentle, effective and enpowering process to initiate positive lasting change. Focusing enables you to move forward in areas of your life where you feel you have become stuck. By interacting with your inner experience of unresolved issues you will be able to find what you need for change to occur.
Focusing is a learnt technique that enables you to connect with your own inner natural process. By pausing and sensing inwardly how the whole of the situation feels in the moment, in a fresh way, a felt sense can form. Out of the felt sense new possibilities and solutions can emerge and carry your experience forward.
We are inherently interactional with our environment, situations and different aspects of ourselves. Sometimes these inner relationships can become damaging to our wellbeing. For instance being over critical to different parts of our experience can cause self doubts, lack of self worth, self confidence, and the feeling of becoming stuck in situations or self-perpetual repeated patterns. Focusing skills can help you to interact with your experiencing by being with these parts that have become stuck and by forming a healthier relationship with different aspects of your experience, a sense of well being and feeling content can emerge; creating a new way of being within yourself.
What to Expect
The Initial Session lasts for 60 minutes. This is space for you to explore what has brought you to counselling, what you would like out of counselling, and ensure that the therapy I offer is the right approach for you. There is no obligation to continue therapy but should you wish to do so, we will then arrange to meet once a week for 60 minutes at a time and day that is convenient to you.
As each individual's experience is unique the length of therapy varies from short-term, usually 6 weeks, to long-term, which is open-ended for as long as you feel you require counselling.
