Hello, thank you for visiting my page. I am an integrative counsellor offering empathetic, non-judgemental and confidential counselling for a wide variety of issues.
Please note that I am not currently able to see new clients, my apologies.
After an initial meeting to discuss your needs and goals (and after which you can decide whether you wish to proceed to further meetings) sessions lasting 50 minutes to an hour consist of being carefully listened to as you work through your difficulties. Sessions take place once a week, either on a short term basis or longer depending on your needs and wishes.
Together we explore your feelings, convictions and ideas and work towards finding ways to challenge negative and detrimental beliefs.
The aim is to find peace and acceptance with loss and painful experiences and to gain a better understanding of yourself and your world. The therapeutic experience can strengthen us and enhance our lives.
My approach to counselling. My counselling training provided an Integrative Approach, firmly based in a Person Centered Model. The ethos behind this way of working is to place the emphasis on a warm, accepting, non-judgemental approach and to work towards deepening the client's understanding of themselves.
The result of this work should furnish the client with 'tools' that they can use to enhance and ease their existence and which they can rely on independently going forward.
