Counselling is a relationship between the counsellor and client in which both contribute and work together to help the client achieve greater well being.
I am a fully qualified and registered Integrative Counsellor and Supervisor.
This means I have been trained to use a variety of approaches / models of therapy in my work. These include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Transactional Analysis (TA) Gestalt, Psychodynamic Therapy, Jungian and Creative methods all of which I offer from a Person Centered frame of reference.
I see everyone as an individual; we all learn in different ways and approach life from very different starting points. Working in this way allows me to experience each client as an individual. I offer this in a professional, supportive, confidential, compassionate and non judgemental environment.
I work with a variety of life issues more of which are mentioned below. I have a particular interest in working with clients who identify with issues related to co - dependency, low self esteem, relationship related problems, divorce, separation and loss, addiction, or those impacted by other peoples addictions, depression, anxiety and stress.
I have had considerable experience in working with problem gamblers and partners of problem gamblers over a number of years. Having had specialised training and I continue to have on-going training from Gamcare, (A National Problem Gambling Organisation in UK)
I have experience and training in working with loss and bereavement. I work within a local hospice where I provide group supervision to counsellors who work solely with bereavement and loss issues. I also provide supervision to health care professionals working in a children's hospice
I work as a Supervisor providing supervision to Therapists working with addiction.
In the past I've worked in a GP's surgery counselling adults. Clients were referred by the GP with a range of concerns including; infertility problems, multiple miscarriges, chronic fatigue,eating disorders,depression and anxiety disoders,patients with cancer or recovering from cancer treatments, and carers who find it difficult to get what they need for themselves.I often work with clients who have medically unexplained symptoms.
I have over 18 years experience of working as an alternative health practitioner which has given me a wealth of understanding in working with many physical conditions. I continue to have an interest in the connection between mind, body and emotions and the nonverbal aspects of communication and relating.
