I also have experience of working with teenagers as a Counsellor in Bridgend College. I am fully DBS checked.
I have successfully worked in private practice for 5 years.
I specialise in trauma counselling and also have a lot of experience working with bereavement. I work with a variety of problems and issues, these include anxiety and depression, emotional issues, relationship issues, childhood abuse and trauma, adult trauma, narcissistic relationships and PTSD.
I offer two types of support
Counselling - People come for counselling for many reasons, it could be they are struggling with anxiety and low mood, stress, Bereavement, loss or relationship problems to name a few. You might be looking for coping techniques/strategies to help you with a certain problem or to get a better understanding of yourself and important others in your life. Whatever your reason for coming to counselling it could be to talk freely in a non judgemental setting, support through a difficult and traumatic time or to achieve a more life balance we can achieve these goals together.
I work in an integrative way, which means that I draw on my core humanistic training (person centred) together with knowledge and experience gained from further professional development including CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy), SFT(Solution Focused Therapy), ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) and Trauma Processing ( See next paragraph), to offer what is most relevant to you. I work short term and long term depending on your specific needs. Sessions last for 50 mins
Trauma Processing -I offer comprehensive and systematic approach to treating complex trauma and PTSD in adults. This includes a detailed assessment, psycho-education, safety and stabilisation, emotional regulation and trauma processes. These include IRRT (Image Rescripting and Reprocessing Therapy), PET (Prolonged Exposure Therapy), NET (Narrative Exposure Therapy), ERRT (Exposure Relaxation and Rescripting Therapy for Post-Trauma Nightmares) and CPT (Cognitive Processing Therapy) which are all the recommended treatments for Trauma and PTSD in the NICE guidelines.
Lots of people will experience trauma, these trauma processes are very well researched in helping people file away the memories properly to either prevent or help with PTSD. These techniques can be used on one event or multiple (complex trauma). Sessions last for 75/90 mins
My first session
How do I start the ball rolling?
You can contact me directly on 07977298284 to discuss any queries you have. Please leave a message with your contact details (including phone number), and I'll get back to you or you can email me.
Our first session will be an opportunity for you to explore what has brought you to counselling and to decide if I am the right person to help you. You can outline your worries, issues, concerns and fears; whether they are current problems or experiences from the past which are still causing you distress. In this session, we will discuss what you are hoping to achieve from counselling so that we know where we are aiming for in our work together.
