Seeking professional help takes a lot of courage, strength, and willpower, I had done the same thing many years ago, leaving me inspired and desiring to become a counsellor myself. Wanting to give back to others what my therapy process had given me: The ability to change.
I spent the next five years studying to become an integrative counsellor, meaning I spent longer training to become experienced in using a large variety of theoretical approaches including CBT, Psychodynamic, Person-Centred, Behavioural, Psychoanalytic, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt, Humanistic, and many more.
Working with me, you will benefit from a personally tailored approach, where I will use elements from various approaches in the way that I see best to help you to achieve your full potential, all focused around your unique-self, needs, circumstances, issues, and any expectations/goals that you desire to achieve from your time with me in therapy. A space of which is safe, confidential, and all about you.
It is only human nature that you become stressed, stuck, overwhelmed, fearful, and emotional in life. It is also only human nature to want better for yourself and your life. I understand that you feel like everything you have tried to-date has not changed anything for you, only having pulled you down more so. But that is why you are here now looking at my profile, you understand that you need that extra bit of support and that's where I come in, helping you to achieve the things you desire and are desperately wanting to change for yourself.
I have been qualified now for nine years and have gone on to running my private practice in Rainham, Essex. I have a high success rate working with individuals and couples within both short-term and long-term therapy. I have always worked with clients of all ages, ranging from late teens to those being of retired age.
Therapy is not always only about changing your current issues for the better, but it will, potentially, mean so much more. I am here to help you change whatever it is you require first and foremost. The potential for further change is up to you. The process can help change various aspects of yourself including; How you view yourself, boost self-worth/self-esteem/confidence, the way you think, react, cope, process, rationalise, interact with others, and much more. All of which will continue to benefit you for the rest of life, not just while in therapy.
I promote the fact that finding and working with the right counsellor for you and your needs is detrimental to you achieving those outcomes that you desire. Therefore, I offer the first 30-minutes of your initial session free of charge. Please visit my website for more information.
