About me and my therapy practice

Life does not always go according to plan; anxiety, stress, loss, grief and trauma are just a few of the things that can impact on us all at some point, stopping us from being the person we want to be. Counselling can help free you from these feelings allowing you to move forward in life.

I believe that we are all capable of finding our own answers, counselling can help facilitate this by allowing you the client to speak openly about your feelings and fears from the past or of the future. To enable you to look at them and explore them unjudged in a safe, confidential and empathic environment.

As an integrative counsellor I draw upon various types of therapy depending on my client’s needs. The main therapies used being Person centred, Looking at how the client is feeling in the here and now. Psycho dynamic. this being how events and treatments in our past affect us impact us now. CBT to help with coping mechanism and changing negative cognitions. I offer both long and short-term counselling again depending on your needs.

EMDR eye movement desensitisation and reprograming therapy. This is a type of therapy that uses bilateral stimulation, to access parts of the brain that processes and integrates memories. in the same way to REM sleep. EMDR has helped clients with psychological difficulties originating from some form or traumatic experience. Such as Rape, abuse, childhood neglect, violence natural and man made disasters.

It is also successful in treating complex grief and phobias, anxiety and depression.

Sometimes making the first steps to contact a counsellor is the hardest part please feel free to call and talk about starting counselling.
