I see clients from all walks of life. I also have experience in CBT (problem solving techniques) and will tailor the counselling according to your needs and work at your pace.
I work from a very peaceful and tranquil setting . In your journey to heal, my aim is to help you feel safe, heard , understood and comfortable,. I will work with you at your pace, in a non-judgement manner to help you achieve your goals, and reach a level of self -realisation.
As well as telephone counselling, I provide, face to face sessions and WhatsApp video .
My first session
In the first session, I will be focusing on what brings you to counselling, looking at reasons for why you feel the way you do through an analytical approach. This can involve exploring childhood relationships, picking up on unconscious and subconscious communication and enabling you to have a conscious awareness of the source of where the issues may be stemming from. As part of my Psychodynamic way of working, we can explore and work through any re-occurring dreams that you may be having when dealing with trauma and complex trauma. Finally, tailoring the counselling to be focused upon the goals you would like to achieve and incorporating some CBT techniques into the Psychodynamic/ Analytical approach to help you manage any issues where, you feel CBT will help.
Please feel free to contact me for a brief chat, to help you decided if my way of working will enable you to achieve your goals and feel warm and safe to heal.
