Barbara Griffiths MBACP
I work through building a warm and supportive relationship with you which allows you space to explore the issues that are causing concern.
I offer an opportunity to talk through your experiences, emotions, behaviours and thoughts; and to find ways of acting and thinking that are more rewarding and satisfying. I aim to facilitate this process by listening and feeding back to you what you are saying; and through inviting you to talk about, and stay focused on, the issues that are key to you. Through talking about your feelings and experiences, particularly those you may feel bad about, and through challenging negative ways of seeing yourself, you can come to feel better about who you are.
I work to an integrative model which means that I work with different therapeutic principles, applying humanistic, psychodynamic and CBT principles. I also work to a trauma informed model. This enables me to be flexible and adapt to client needs and presenting issues.
I can help with various well-being and life issues. I have a particular interest in working with survivors of childhood abuse.
