I am a qualified counsellor trained in integrative psychotherapy. I offer a safe and non-judgmental space and a confidential and supportive relationship where clients can work at their own pace to overcome their personal obstacles. My philosophy is that counselling is not just about overcoming personal difficulty but is also about reaching personal potential and discovering the person that you were meant to be.
Training, qualifications & experience
- Doctorate in clinical practice (ongoing)
- MA in Jungian Psychology (with distinction)
- BA in Counselling (with 1st class Honours)
- FdSc in Integrative Counselling (with Merit)
- Advanced Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy
- Diploma in Hypnotherapy
I strongly believe that it is the relationship between counsellor and client that facilitates growth and healing and I strive to provide a safe, confidential and judgement-free environment where my clients can explore and unpack their problems and work towards the solutions they need. I believe that people repress and disassociate from parts of themselves (due to trauma, sadness, and the judgements of others) and that uncovering, accepting, and integrating these parts back into the self tends to lead people towards a more genuine sense of self and helps them to fully realise their potential as an individual. My training has been largely integrative meaning I utilise a wide variety of theories and approaches within my client work including: Jungian, Freudian and post-Freudian, Humanistic, and transactional analysis theory.
Throughout my training and post-qualification I have worked in a number of agencies and counselling settings and have worked with a wide variety of age-groups and presenting issues.
