Isabelle Whitby MBACP
I have been trained as an Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and in the Application of the arts.
I offer both long and short term therapy, in a confidential and client led environment, that focuses on providing a space that is both supportive and sensitive to your needs. I aim to build a safe environment so that clients are able to explore their life and areas of distress, enabling you to discover the right path.
Integrative means that I am able to adapt to the individual needs and their particular issue, drawing from a range of different approaches such as; (CBT, Attachment theory, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt therapy). Sometimes I use the arts in creative interventions within the therapeutic process. The use of creativity can offer powerful insights and some people find it easier to express themselves this way.
