About me

What is counselling:

Counselling is a confidential process in which to acknowledge and explore problematic feelings and behaviours without judgment. The aim is to help you understand more about yourself and your difficulties and to become more aware of your own resources. In doing so, you may be able to make changes in your life or come to terms with things that cannot be changed. Change may be swift or slower: some clients may only need a few sessions, while others may want to undertake more in-depth work.The first session will be an assessment, in order for us both to decide if and how we can work together.

Integrative Counselling

My counselling approach is integrative, which means working with clients using the wisdom of different psychotherapeutic schools of thought. I aim at putting these together in a way that is most helpful to the client, rather than adapting and restricting the client’s needs to one model of care. It most certainly is not about “one size fits all”, as different people may need a different approach at different times.    

About me

My initial training was in mental health nursing and I am a trained and qualified senior mental health nurse. However, I discovered that the medical and psychiatric models have their limitations in understanding the individual meanings that we as humans give to our world.

Hence, I obtained a Post-graduate Certificate, a Post-Graduate Diploma and an MSc in Counselling and Psychotherapy at Surrey University in Guildford. This was a very in-depth training that took into account humanistic, psychodynamic, and cognitive approaches. It also considered philosophical schools of thought, such as existentialism, to help to understand the richness and uniqueness of the human mind. Following the above, I obtained a Postgraduate Diploma in Forensic Psychotherapeutic Studies at the Portman and Tavistock Clinic in London.

I am also trained in Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR). This is a therapy that aids clients to fully process experiences that are causing problems, and includes installing new ones that are needed for full health.
