About me

I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor, working in and using the relationship between ourselves and others as the basis for therapeutic change. Psychotherapeutic counselling lets me continue to explore how we become distressed and how we can heal.

As well as the process of awareness of our own personality and how we learn from life events using our bonds with others, I use CBT techniques among other approaches to remain focussed on finding the clients own route to growth and self awareness.

Training, qualifications & experience

Diploma and advanced diploma in Psychotherapeutic Integrative Counselling.

Other professional experience

  • NHS mental health worker
  • Substance Misuse Project work (one to one as well as group)
  • Group facilitator in both peer lead social support and group therapy
  • Delivering self help information through locally available classes
  • Certificate in relationship counselling (couples and other relationship choices)

The Integrative training aims to move individual therapists from eclectic therapy (applying multiple theories), to an integrated style that both matches the therapists personality and the way we create and manage change in therapy. More concise: this is a robust therapeutic relationship.

My interests remain in personality roles, including gender and identity, and the impact of cultural pressure on conformity, among other reactions. I have found and continue professional development in all approaches which challenge and improve my understanding of therapeutic relationships.
