About me

I have worked with adults for 11 years and for the past 8 years I have specialised in children and young people.I offer a safe friendly confidential space’ to work through any presenting issues/concerns. Some of the topics I work with are depression, anxiety, self esteem, stress, family issues, eating disorders, sexuality, abuse, gender identity, Autism spectrum, suicide etc; and I deliver team building workshops for children/ young people struggling with self esteem and confidence.

HOW I WORK

I am a person who is real, warm and honest. I will give yourself/child a safe place to explore thoughts, feelings and experiences. I will aid you or child to explore what the issues or concerns are, and look at what you want to achieve within therapy. I am a therapist that comes from a genuine space. giving complete acceptance of your/child’s situation. Validating how things are for you/child, I will be by your side on your journey to change.

I use different theories to suit the clients needs, such as CBT to look at evidence of your thinking, Transactional analysis to educate and explore human behaviours of self, humanistic existential to explore the meaning, choice and responsibility you bring to your life. Person Centred is to allow the client to explore their own story in a way that is personal to them.

Further information

Being an existential humanistic counsellor it allows me the ability to look at all areas within your life, which are :- physical, psychological, spiritual, and social aspects of our lives, it enables me to work holistically as a practitioner. The principles of humanistic existential counselling is :- to take responsibility for the choices and directions we have made within our lives; finding a way to help the individual live within the moment, giving you a stronger sense of freedom. Looking at what makes life meaningful for you, what are the limitations/ beliefs that you may have placed upon yourself, and how you can live within those limitations/ beliefs and still feel a sense of peace, if the limitations/ beliefs cannot be removed.
