My approach to Counselling is Integrative, combining Person-Centred, Psychodynamic and CBT techniques. I respect that no two people are the same, nor have they experienced the same things in the same way. As such I will always focus on your individual circumstances and dedicate time to allowing you to explore your own feelings and reactions, whatever these may be.
Acceptance and understanding are often the start of the journey towards healing, and I will provide the safe environment, empathy and honest reflection that will enable you to achieve these. Following this, I aim to assist you on the path to gaining a new perspective and a more positive view of your present and future.
I have also trained as a Life Coach, which allows me to take a collaborative approach to working with my clients, helping you to identify your strengths, goals and ambitions, and creating a plan with you to support you in achieving growth, change and self-awareness.
Whatever your own circumstances; whether you have experienced trauma or loss, have unresolved feelings from your past, or are suffering from anxiety, depression or low self-esteem, I would like to help you to address this.
