About me and my therapy practice
Hello I’m Esther. I hold the BACP Accredited Advanced Diploma in Person Centred Counselling and have over 20 years of experience working for the NHS (Doctors Surgeries), Prison Service (Addictions Counsellor), as a workplace counsellor and in Private Practice. I have experience of working with Young People, Adults, individuals, couples and families.
My years of practice and continued professional development has enabled me to work in an integrative /Pluralistic way. This means I work collaboratively and holistically using techniques and tools from different modalities to tailor an individual approach for each client.
Alongside an awareness of what happens in the mind - such as cognitive patterns and belief systems- I invite an awareness (a mindfulness) of the body and its inner processes and wisdom.
The heart of my practice is assessing how I can best be of help to you. I will consider your mental, physical and emotional needs and find the approach and tools that are most useful and meaningful to you.
I integrate a number of approaches including humanistic, CBT, psychodynamic, analytical, biodynamic, relational and body and energy work.
The tools I use are primarily driven by Humanistic Counselling, solution focused therapy, narrative therapy and creative therapy. Methods I use are role plays, EFT, self-talk, problem solving and assisting individuals to change thinking patters that no longer serve them.
You may be wanting to address a specific issue or it may be that the process is one of getting to know oneself better, to reconnect to and find a deeper meaning in life or greater personal fulfilment.
Whatever your reason for seeking therapy the process is an individual one and I will provide you with a calm, confidential space where you will feel heard and understood.
