It is an important decision to invest in yourself through therapy. Whatever brings you to therapy I would welcome the opportunity to work with you. I am a warm, open and caring person. I take each session at your pace and can work short or long term. I work in accordance with the BACP Ethical Framework and will provide you with a safe, non judgemental space to work in.
I am a qualified Humanistic Counsellor and Registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapy (BACP). I have worked privately for a number of years and have also previously worked for charities in a voluntary role.
I use a Person Centred approach with elements of Transactional Analysis (TA) and Gestalt and also use some aspects of CBT. If you would like some more information on these theories, please do not hesitate to get in touch or alternatively I have links to the following useful articles below.
I truly believe that despite the various difficulties we may experience in life, every individual has the natural ability to realise their potential. It is also important to me to have an equal relationship with my clients that Humanistic theory promotes.
