About me and my therapy practice
I am an integrative Therapist with over 24 years of experience and an MA in Psychotherapy and counselling. I am an accredited member of the BACP and passionate about the healing power of counselling, psychotherapy and the capacity of the human psyche to heal, develop and grow. This belief, coupled with my training and experience, underpins how I work (with adults, one to one).
I have a high level of experience working with the following: low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, bereavement, trauma, relationship issues; confusion and work place stress. I have a special interest in: trauma; psychophysiological disorders and the mind/body connection, especially how the body can be used as a tool to bring about change and healing.
The first contact is an opportunity to explain what you’re struggling with and also to ask any questions.
Your first appointment is a two way process whereby you will talk about any symptoms you may have and what you need help with. I will be assessing your clinical need and you will be assessing me and discovering how I work; if you are comfortable, we can make further appointments.
My approach is integrative which means I draw on several different theoretical approaches to support my work. I work in a client centred, humanistic way and work differently with everyone because each of us and our needs and experiences are unique.
