As a qualified Counsellor/Psychotherapist and Systemic Practitioner, I can offer sessions for adults or young people on an individual basis, or family sessions. Therapy is tailored to the individual and I adapt to individual's needs and approaches, for example therapy may involve a safe space to explore experiences or difficult emotions through counselling, play-based therapy for younger children, sessions using a CBT approach or more systemic, family work. With a background in Person-Centred Counselling and Systemic Family therapy approaches, my therapeutic style is based on an approach of empathy, genuineness and acceptance. I am also able to offer counselling supervision, having gained supervision experience over the last couple of years.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified Counsellor/Psychotherapist having completed a Post-graduate Diploma in Counselling (BACP accredited), and I am an Accredited member of The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am also a qualified Systemic Practitioner, having completed training in a Family Therapy course (accredited by the Association of Family Therapy). Additional training includes the use of CBT for children, Young People and Families and the use of CBT with children with phobias. I have experience of working alongside adults, young people and families, on both a short-term and long-term basis, and adapt my approach to suit the needs and approaches of individuals. I have experience and training with working using play for children, CBT for those who would prefer a more guided approach, and focus on family and relationships. I have worked for the past five years as a Therapist alongside children, young people and families using a variety of approaches and in relation to a wide range of difficulties. Prior to this I worked for a number of years as a Counsellor with students and adults on an individual basis.
I believe strongly in a non-judgemental, empathic and genuine approach, and have an interest in working systemically, meaning working with various members of the family; all those potentially impacted upon by ongoing difficulties. This could be exploring family dynamics and relationships, family history and patterns of communication and how to move forward as a family working together.
