About me and my therapy practice
I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor having achieved a BSC Honours Degree is Systemic Counselling at the University of South Wales. I also completed a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling at Coleg Gwent, which is a model combining elements of humanistic, psychodynamic, relational and cognitive behaviour therapy.
Using an Integrative Approach, there are three main approaches that I choose to work with;
The foundation to my therapy is a Humanistic/Person Centered Approach. I believe that ultimately the client is the expert in the room. Each individual will know themselves the best and what they want from life - but circumstances in life can block/damage this vision. By offering warmth, understanding and by being genuine, I can help you reconnect with your inner resources to find your own way forward. I do not offer direct advice or give opinions as I believe in empowering the client to follow their own path.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) can be particularly useful for clients coping with anxiety and depression. For those clients that this may benefit we would be looking at introducing life-long tools to be used immediately and in the long term, enabling you to see a brighter future and reach your own state of balance and emotional well-being.
Psychodynamic counselling would look at patterns in behaviour and perhaps exploring your past. This approach stresses the importance of the unconscious and past experience in determining current behaviour. We may focus on childhood relationships with parents and/or other significant people.
As well as these approaches I have experience in Cognitive Analytical Therapy (CAT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) and Mindfulness.
