About me and my therapy practice
I believe in a holistic approach to overcoming the difficulties we can often face in life and I offer safe, non-judgmental and confidential support in helping you find ways to regain a sense of emotional well-being. People seek counselling for a number of reasons; for reassurance and support and coping with mental health difficulties. Counselling can help people who are unsure how they are feeling and is also helpful if a traumatic event has been encountered. I am a qualified and experienced counsellor and a registered and accredited member of BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy). I began my counselling studies after the sudden death of my father in 2001. I wanted to understand more about the grieving process and how to help others with emotional and personal difficulties. Since qualifying I have worked as a counsellor within Education, in the Public and Voluntary Sectors and I have a wealth of experience working with a number of issues.
I am ASIST (suicide first aid & prevention) trained and a Trauma Informed counsellor (member of the Complex Trauma Therapist Network UK). I work as an integrative counsellor, which means I use a range of theoretical models to facilitate profound and positive change. My work is client led, so we work on the issues you bring. I am trained in the Person Centred Approach, Solution Focussed Therapy, low intensity CBT, Mindfulness, Life Coaching and Neuro Linguistic Programming. I am an Expressive Art therapist & facilitator and I trained in the lineage of Natalie Rogers, the founder of The Creative Connection. As a Mindfulness Practitioner I incorporate mindful approaches into the Walk & Talk therapy I offer. See more about this on my website.
