I am an Integrative Counsellor with a Person Centred Foundation. This means that I can draw on different counselling techniques, whilst keeping you at the centre of our work. My approach to counselling is supportive, and non-judgmental. The process of counselling is confidential, and my role as your counsellor is to provide space and time for you to explore your concerns.
I have a particular interest in working creatively using metaphor, story telling and art. Working creatively can be helpful when trying to understand the root cause of Anxiety and Depression, as it can assist some clients to bring feelings to the surface that may otherwise be difficult to verbalise.
Simply talking through issues and worries in a non-judgmental and empathic environment can be enough to facilitate change. I believe you have the answers, and I will be alongside you while you explore and make sense of what is worrying you.
I believe the relationship between counsellor and client is the key to therapeutic change and this is at the heart of my work.
In addition to my Private Practice I am a Counselling Lecturer and Course Manager at Bracknell College. I have experience working with students as a Counsellor or Supervisor and offer some discounted student sessions, please call or e-mail to enquire.
I am within easy reach of Wokingham, Crowthorne, Bracknell and Reading. My practice is a short walk form Crowthorne train station, and bus stop. I have plenty of parking on site.
