I am a fully qualified and professionally registered therapeutic counsellor, holding qualifications in further holistic therapies in order to support my clients through the therapy process to the very best of my ability, I am an integrated Counsellor incoperating 4 of the main counselling approaches to my therapy(Person Centered Counselling, Brief Solution Focused Therapy, CBT and Psycho-dynamic Theory), in doing so I aim to tailor the therapy to each client rather than the client to the therapy.
I implore to work with my clients in order to suit their personality as well as meeting their individual therapeutic needs. I promise to support you in any way I can which usually comes in the form of one on one counselling however this can be adjusted should your needs require so.
