About me and my therapy practice
I have varied experience in a Youth Counselling Service, GP Counselling Service and a Community Mental Health Team. I have also trained and worked at Relate for 11 years. I have had considerable life experiences which have enriched my work as a counsellor: working in different countries, both East and West, in various organisations and in education as a Montessori teacher and teaching children with special needs.
I specialise in relationship counselling. I also have particular experience of counselling people with Inflammatory Bowel Disease. I see individual and couples who self-refer and employees referred from a number of organisations. I offer brief or open-ended counselling, working in an integrative way, mainly following Person-centred and Psychodynamic approaches, but also using Family Systems, Solution Focused and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy depending on your needs. I aim to work with you to help you to understand yourself more fully to discover different options and to find your own strengths to deal with difficulties in your life. I offer a safe, confidential and reliable place for you to talk freely about your problems without being judged.
I have helped people with a wide range of issues such as bereavement, low self-esteem, anxiety, stress, family difficulties, abuse (emotional, physical and sexual). I have helped couples renew difficult relationships due to lack of communication, constant arguments, loss of sexual desire, affairs, etc; others to have a better outcome on separation/divorce.
