About me and my therapy practice
BA (Hons/Diploma in Social Work) Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
IS COUNSELLING FOR ME? After trying to manage every day challenges and frustrations without experiencing desired results, the chances are you are not here by coincidence and are possibly asking yourself this very question, “Is counselling for me?”
I understand how normal it is to experience overwhelming feelings and I connect to the strong feelings of shame, and pride that can stand in the way of seeking help. This is because I have experienced such feelings and also sat in the client’s chair.
HOW I WORK I am a compassionate Integrative Therapist who combines Person Centred and Psychodynamic interventions when working with clients. This means I explore with clients what they are experiencing now, as well as past experiences. This is very insightful and life changing when there is a connection to current patterns of relating.
I use “Gestalt” and “CBT” techniques as well as meditations, positive affirmations and creative exercises. These combined ways of working also aid movement in the client’s exploration of self, awareness and change. As a good therapist, I believe in your value as a human being and walk with you without judgement toward your desired outcomes. I show genuine interest, empathy and understanding of things from your core perspectives whether it be historical, cultural, religious or social. Working with diversity is of great interest to me and me seeing the whole person is what will make you experience and understand your challenges on many levels.
