I offer a safe, confidential, non-judgmental space for counselling and psychotherapy, where you can both find your voice and be heard. Sometimes simply being heard can be sufficient to alleviate pain and difficult feelings. In other instances having an external person to reflect and examine your emotions with can help bring clarity, understanding and acceptance.
I have over eight years experience delivering counselling and psychotherapy to clients from diverse social and cultural backgrounds, with wide-ranging motivations for commencing therapy. I trained in the Psychodynamic model of psychotherapy at one of the U.K.’s leading psychotherapy training institutes WPF Therapy and am a registered member with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am bound by their code of professional conduct and ethical principles.
Additionally, I have over six years experience working with adults in higher education presenting with disabilities, chronic health conditions, mental health problems, and specific learning difficulties (Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia, ADD & ADHD) Asperger’s Syndrome/Autism, helping them build confidence and access means of support within their educational setting.
Committed to continuous professional and personal development (CPD), having undergone therapy myself I understand what it is like to be in the client’s seat and can, therefore empathise with this position. In addition, I have participated in NLP and Hypnotherapy sessions. I also have experience of coaching, training and development.
I am open to new advances in wellness and alternative approaches and feel that clients benefit from taking a holistic approach to mental and physical well-being, believing that the scope of personal growth is infinite. My view is that although our strongest resource is ourselves, support from others can help us access our full potential and through this ultimately become more independent.
How counselling or therapy can help you?
The psychodynamic technique aims to bring the unconscious mind into consciousness, through exploring one’s past and present experiences, perceptions and feelings. The relationship between the therapist and client can be utilised as a helpful tool to identify entrenched thoughts, feelings, behaviors and destructive patterns. Psychotherapy is a unique process which brings profound understanding and lasting change both personally and professionally, often the value of this is more far-reaching than what prompted clients to seek therapy in the first place. The process of self-discovery is empowering as it allows you to make informed decisions and not simply react unconsciously to internal and external stimulus, repeating unhelpful patterns or habitual ways of relating which reinforce dissatisfaction and despair. Self-reflection can at times be painful but can also be surprising and exciting, ultimately it is invaluable.
Having an independent therapist who is not a relative or friend to share this journey with you can bring a degree of security and freedom, enabling you to consider taking what may feel like emotional risks, resolve conflicts both internally and externally, action change where possible and begin to accept what is beyond your control.
