The counselling service I have established is called, "A Ray of Hope", I offer clients therapy, using a humanistic approach. I bring a great deal of experience both personally and professionally to my work. I have worked for and currently work within various professional organisations, including: The Priory hospital.
I provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment offering my clients unconditional, positive regard and empathy as they grow and develop. This can lead to greater insight, healing and progress.
Our early experiences, both negative and positive, impact on our present way of thinking, behaving and relating to others, therefore it is important to help the client to make those links between past and present behaviour, to increase their self awareness and bring about change.
Clients also have the option to receive Auricular acupuncture and/or meditation - these are optional and are very good holistic remedies for relieving stress; anxiety; fatigue; pain and for detoxing. Auricular Acupuncture is a form of Chinese Medicine which uses small needles inserted into various parts of the ear to treat a variety of conditions. I practice a NADA five point Protocol for Substance Misuse and Stress Management. Indeed, some clients who are withdrawing from alcohol and drugs/nicotine find this particularly beneficial.
I believe in the core conditions, i.e., putting clients at the centre of their own recovery and empowering them to change their lives for the better!
