I have been Qualified for 20 years. My background is varied and I have worked for many different agencies, some of which included working with Armed forces, Judicial system, NHS and Victim support. I also have had a small private practice of my own for 10 years.
My theoretical approach is integrative, but strongly under pinned with CBT. This approach also includes a range of other counselling theories such as NLP, Person Centred, Solution Focused and TA.
An integrative approach allows us to find the most effective and individual approach throughout the counselling process and subsequently tailoring each session to you and your unique situation, problems and experiences.
During our counselling sessions, you may identify and address any unhelpful or outdated thinking and behaviours, for example, negative thoughts and feelings about yourself or a situation. Together we can address particular thoughts, behaviours and responses, which may be adding to the difficulties in your life.
We can explore and look for more helpful or alternative thought patterns. Throughout the sessions, you will have opportunities to decide on any changes you wish to implement in your life and what your desired future is, moving forward.
My approach is based strongly on the belief that we, as individuals, are capable of being self-driven and determined and with a clear understanding of our situation, we can move towards and initiate positive change in all areas of our lives.
I have a clinic in Hoylake and also Rodney St Liverpool 1.
