About me and my therapy practice
Every one of us at times face challenges and dilemmas that can leave us confused. If you feel that you are ready to make changes, whatever it is that you are facing at this time, there is a good chance that counselling may help you. I am a qualified integrative counsellor.
My approach uses different theories that include the main forces in psychology of Humanistic, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Psychodynamics. This means I combine different techniques and interventions to create the most effective therapy for your needs. This may include mindfulness, guided visualisations and art therapy.
My aim is to empower you to help you reduce confusion and enable you to cope with challenges and make positive changes in your unhelpful or unhealthy patterns of behaviour in a safe, confidential and respectful environment, for you to be able to explore any issues, emotions within a safe therapeutic relationship to discuss, whatever is important to you at this time. The therapeutic experience can either be short, goal focused or open ended. Each person has different needs and goals, we can discuss what you would like to achieve. By offering a safe, confidential space to work within for the 50 minute sessions each week. My aim is to build a therapeutic relationship with you so we are able to explore any issue that may arise for you within your time in counselling offering the tools to empower you to help yourself. I focus on helping you explore feelings and emotions that are often related to your experiences, allowing you to reflect on what is happening to you and to consider alternative ways of doing things, or thinking styles. I help you to view things from different perspectives. This can lead to an increased sense of awareness, that can be invaluable if you want to bring about effective change.
