Other areas of counselling I deal with
I work with Relationships and the meaning of each person's own understanding of their up bring. Our upbringing and understanding of everyday life has everything to do with what we have been brought up with in our beliefs, understanding, culturally and systemically. Most importantly not one upbringing is the same as another which explains common conflict. I work with genograms witch is a clinical tools to address these matters.
I also work with Bereavement and loss and have a very good understanding of the Gestalt theory around understanding grief and how we may wish to address it but most of all the respecting each a person rightly deserves around a bereavement and what it may or may not mean to the individual.
