I am a fully qualified Person-Centred counselling therapist and registered member of the BACP. My experience has been working with clients with mental health difficulties who have been experiencing trauma, the pain of bereavement, anxiety and depression and stress related conditions. I work with clients who have low self-esteem and lack confidence to aid build a positive outlook and to change their mind-set and perspective. I am sensitive to the needs of my clients and work on building a trusting relationship in order for us to develop a foundation, to work together and create change for you, in the way in which you want and anticipate to happen.
I work in a Person-Centred approach that allows you to feel valued. I will endeavour to help you in such a way that you are able to dissolve past traumatic memories, that are creating a negative pattern for you and as such will facilitate you in developing in the way you choose. I also use CBT techniques to explore your issues and find solutions.
I offer an opportunity for you to embark on a trusting relationship that can support you to achieve the goals you set. If you are new to counselling it can be a daunting prospect to choose a counsellor and attend an appointment, hence you will be welcomed in a friendly manor to open up and discuss your issues. Counselling can be very effective if you are willing to work towards change.
