About me and my therapy practice
I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor with a Diploma in Humanistic and Integrative Counselling (BCPC).
As well as working privately with adults of all ages, I work as a counsellor within a local charity, supporting young people aged 18-25.
I would describe the way I work as very much shaped by the person-centred and psychodynamic approaches but I also draw on other theories too (for example, phenomenological and existential). Working in this way means that together we can explore the things that are meaningful to you, in a way that feels right for you.
Previous and additional training that supports my work includes: Level 5 Introduction to Counselling Children and Young People and BSc (Hons) in Psychology.
It is my intention to provide for you a welcoming, confidential and supportive space where you can feel truly heard and understood, without judgement.
Working at your pace, we can explore your past and present experiences - and in doing so come to better understand how you relate to yourself, to others and to the world around you.
With increased awareness comes the opportunity to accept what is, to identify what isn't working for you, and to perhaps make changes going forwards - to enable you to live more fully and authentically.
I believe that each of us has an inner knowing of who we really are but that sometimes our experiences impact us in such a way that we lose touch with it. Therapy can facilitate that process of reconnecting with our inner knowing.
My first session
The most important part of the therapy is the relationship that we will build together. So, I therefore welcome us meeting for an initial session, without making any further commitment, to see what it might be like to work together. If it feels right for you and I am able to provide the support you are looking for we will work out together how to move forwards.
The initial session is a little more structured than a usual counselling session. I will ask a few questions to get a sense of what the issues are and how best I can help. And you, of course, are welcome to ask any questions you might have to.
