I have been working with people my entire working life, something I see as a tremendous privilege. This, often humbling experience, has allowed me to learn as much about myself as those I work with. There is something very fulfilling in being trusted with the inner worlds of another human being.
My approach to working with clients...
Being an Integrative therapist with a person-centred approach to working with people, I believe we all have the resources within ourselves to identify changes we need to make while also possessing the inner resilience, energy and abilities to do so.
Strongly rooted in the humanistic school, I believe that it is never too late to be what you might have become and do my best to ensure that I work with all my clients in a safe, non-judgemental and discrete fashion.
In order to do this l integrate a range of therapeutic counselling theories and skills in a unique way so as to meet the individual needs of the client, couple or family I am working with. These include CBT, Psychodynamic Therapy skills, Transactional Analysis, Mindfulness, EFT, Gestalt or the core conditions of Humanism.
Assurance to all...
I offer all clients supportive, confidential and non-judgmental space to explore and tackle their issues and enable long-lasting life changes.
I am an Accredited Member of The National Counselling Society and work strictly within the BACP ethical code of practice.
In order for you to make permanent changes in your life, I offer myself as a therapeutic facilitator, working alongside you, being curious with you about yourself, and helping you ask and answer core questions to get to the heart of what may be causing your difficulties and concerns.
