Zoe Barrett MBACP Integrative Counsellor
I'm Zoë, I am based in St Austell, in Cornwall.
I provide both short term and long term therapy, for individuals and couples. I believe the Relationship is the heart of the Therapeutic process. From our initial session, we will both be able to see if we are able to work together towards an established working alliance and trust-based relationship. I feel with a trust-based relationship and the right environment, there is the potential to have a greater awareness of personal issues. Through regular contact, I will be able to sit beside you on the journey to self-discovery, with self-discovery comes growth and the awareness of change.
As an Integrative Counsellor, I work in a variety of ways. I have a humanistic core to my Therapy, drawing on Psychodynamic theory, which is looking into your past and childhood, piecing together who you are today, Looking into attachment styles. From this, we can look at the present day, through a phenomenological way. I will provide a safe space for you to talk freely and try to understand what it means to be you.
Creative therapy, Sand tray and Gestalt also used.
