Non-judgemental, supportive counselling could provide a way out of what might feel like a maze, and offer the prospect of real change in your life. I aim to provide a supportive environment where distress or confusion can be safely expressed and gently explored. You may be struggling with old hurts or recent distress; I have fourteen years' experience with clients who seek relief from, and insight into, their concerns.
Beginning counselling or therapy can seem daunting; contact me if you'd like a little more information, or to book an assessment session where your needs can be discussed and we can explore a way forward.
I offer one-to-one counselling and psychotherapy with adult clients in private, comfortable rooms in LE2 (1st floor) and in LE1 (ground floor) near the city centre and where I am an associate with Laura Baines-Ball Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and am listed on the BACP Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. I am, therefore, committed to adherance to the Framework for Ethical Practice.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained as a counsellor at the University of Leicester, a centre of excellence in this field and have the following awards:
* Certificate in Counselling Studies
* Higher Education Diploma in Contemporary Psychodynamic Counselling
* BA (Hons) Counselling
In addition to my psychodynamic training, I've studied Transactional Analysis (TA) and Mindfulness. Psychodynamic work helps us to look at our past and how that's impacting on us now; TA looks at how we relate to others and where that might be going wrong and Mindfulness is the increasingly well-known practice which can help with relaxation and focus.
I use the approaches which are most suited to each client, tailoring therapy to the individual.
In addition, I have studied specialist areas such as depression, loss and bereavement, surviving sexual abuse for both men and women, self-harm and the impact of disability.
Working both in private practice and formerly at the Leicester Counselling Centre, I have experience of a wide range of client issues, including depression and it's causes, childlessness, stillbirth, bereavement, loss in its' many forms, abuse, redundancy and work problems, and the complexities of families and relationships. I also have experience of working with people with autism and have recently completed studies regarding Autistic Spectrum Disorders and approaches to support, with the Open University.
