Welcome to C.A.L.M.
(Counselling And Life Management)
I'm a qualified Integrative Counsellor. This is a combined approach to psychotherapy that brings together different elements of specific therapies as there is no single approach that can treat each client in all situations.
I am also trained to use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (C.B.T) which can be useful for treating specific issues such as Anxiety, Depression, Anger Management and Negative Thought Patterns.
I have considerable experience (15 years) working with both Adults, Children (AGE 10 to 18) Family Mediation and Couples Counselling at home, in private practise or within a school setting.
I offer a service that is confidential caring and compassionate. I use a range of therapeutic techniques that ensure your sessions are tailored to your needs. I will listen and help you explore what is worrying you. We will work together at your pace and explore possibilities for change.
Within these roles I have worked with a wide range of challenges which include Low Self Esteem, Stress Bereavement and Loss, Depression, Self Harm O.C.D Bullying, Relationship Issues, Emotional Abuse, amongst others. For you to feel heard and valued in the therapeutic relationship is very important to me.
Long lasting solutions can be achieved by making small positive changes to enable you to enhance the quality of your life.
