The Counselling service I have established is called, "A Ray of Hope" I have a degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I also have an Advanced diploma in integrative counselling.
I offer clients therapy using the humanistic approach. I have a great deal of experience in counselling and group work. I have worked within various professional organisations, including the NHS and The Priory Hospital, working with Addiction and many other issues such as anxiety, depression bereavement, loss and Trauma.
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.
I work from my private practice in Ardleigh Green, Essex and Brentwood. I also offer online sessions.
Sometimes the world we live in gets tough. There can be so many mix messages which we start to believe about ourselves, this can sometimes develop into a negative core belief such as. " I'm not good enough or I don't fit in", and many more, as a result of this clients can often feel depressed, it starts to affect self-esteem. Counselling can help clients to challenge these negative core beliefs and help break the patterns this will result in a more positive self-concept. and self-belief.
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 to increase their self-awareness and bring about change.
As well as face to face sessions in a comfortable counselling room. I run 2 group therapy sessions with a guided meditation and Auricular Acupunture on a Sunday at the Ardleigh Green Family Centre, near Gidea Park station.
I am trained in the Pia Melody Trauma model along with shame reduction and inner child healing. I have recently attended workshops with Robert Burney the author of Dance with the wounded souls.
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!
