About me and my therapy practice

BACP Registered Member, Master of Science Degree in Guidance & Counselling and Post Graduate Diploma in Cognitive Psychotherapy with a particular interest in Trauma and Childhood Sexual Abuse. 

I work in the area of Integration counselling, combined with different approaches as in the Person-Centered Model, Rescripted Imagery and Cognitive Psychotherapy, targeted to the wider audience, especially to those who consider having a disability and, as a result, experience marginalisation. In order to ensure that therapy work is accessible to all, I use visual aids as in drawing diagrams, using picture cards, and ‘playing on stage’ or ‘drawing in the air’ using visual rescripted imagery to tell their story in a language that best suits them.

I share my CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) knowledge and experience with individuals where it would be helpful to them and to enable them to develop coping tools that they can use in everyday life beyond the completion of our counselling work. The work, on which I focus, covers a plethora of mental health issues as in depression, anxiety, perpetual worry, trauma, social anxiety, health anxiety, bereavement and grief, amongst other different issues.  One of the many benefits that CBT has to offer is psycho-education, given it offers recipients the key information and other useful resources they need to understand the causes, symptoms and appropriate treatments options of a specific difficulty experienced. Through daily intervention practice to change unhealthy behaviours, it warrants, in the long term, optimum recovery and maintained wellbeing, whilst simultaneously learning to ramp up the resilience and assets in order to maintain the right ratio for positivity against the negativity and continue to flourish even when faced with adversity and disappointment.   

I work with individuals from age 18 to adults of all age groups on a one-to-one basis in a safe environment where confidentiality is assured. The length of time for sessions varies depending on individual’s needs and includes both longer-term therapeutic work as well as short term solution-focused counselling. In broad terms, short-term counselling will usually be 6-12 sessions whilst working longer term developmental work will take between 16 and 20 sessions.
