About me and my therapy practice

My Approach

As a counsellor my main aim is to develop a relationship with understanding, empathy and whole-hearted support. I maintain a respectful relationship with people who are experiencing difficulties which are not always understood or heard, and aim to understand the struggle, emotional pain, anxiety, depression, anguish and anger which remains unnoticed, unheard or completely rejected and can lead to confusion, distress or withdrawal from the outside world.

I value human dignity more than anything.

Practice description

Different approaches to Counselling

I use an integrative model of therapy, which means I follow whichever approach I believe will be most effective for the client. One of these approaches is CBT (Cognitive Behavioural therapy). CBT is a structured, evidence based therapy and can be helpful for managing anger, anxiety, depression, sleeplessness, eating problems, panic attacks, phobias, or stress.

Longer term therapy can help people who are diagnosed with more serious mental health problems such as schizophrenia, bipolar personality disorder, paranoia, acute anxiety or eating disorders (bulimia, anorexia or obesity). Through a longer term therapeutic relationship the client can develop strength and awareness of their situation, and the power to change.

I also work with existential issues, which means my focus is on difficulties in the present moment where a deeper understanding and free expression can help the client, and use Mindfulness based stress reduction techniques to calm anxiety, stress or other negative feelings.
