I am a BACP registered Integrative counsellor based in Metherell Callington. I work with both adults and young people and offer a flexible approach to counselling and working from a peaceful log cabin offer a private and relaxing space for my face-to-face service. Alternatively for some clients I can also offer counselling via telephone or Skype.
I work using a Connections Model combining Person Centred, Gestalt, Trans-personal and CBT theories and techniques. I use this model because I like the way mix use of theories and techniques. I also feel that while Person Centred counselling should be at the heart of the working relationship, I like the way that Gestalt, CBT and Trans-personal techniques work well together in enhancing the Person-Centred work in a more holistic way connecting the mind, soul, emotion and body.
I think sometimes anyone can be emotionally vulnerable and this can lead to feeling alone in experiencing these anxieties or fears which can often make it hard to trust in the counselling process and that it takes compassion, commitment and patience to develop a good therapeutic relationship and I believe I have that compassion, commitment and patience offering my clients a safe space to focus on their own well-being and encouraging them in making their own decisions and regaining control of their own lives.
