About me and my therapy practice
During the corona virus pandemic I offer telephone or online/ video calls to suit your needs. I am aware that this is not as personal as face to face but telephone and video calls are just as affective. We are going through difficult times and I am here to be to help. I can be contacted via email or telephone. Please don't suffer in silence.
I am an accredited counsellor working from an Integrative therapy model. I focus on Attachment theory, Person Centred Therapy,T.A, NLP, Compassionate Mind Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy and Mindfulness. I have 24 years experience as a private counsellor and 10 years in primary health. I am also a lecturer in counselling.
I specialise in working with perinatal and postnatal issues, infertility and adoption issues.
My research for my Masters dissertation was in, "The transition into new motherhood and the need for a counselling service."
Since then I have devised a perinatal and postnatal parenting 8 week course.
I also specialise in working with low self esteem issues and bullying. This includes work related stress.
I believe whichever model or theory of Counselling is used the essential component is rapport and empathy so that you feel truly heard and properly listened to.This is important when working with people who have anxiety or depression. I think it is essential that I understand things from the client's point of view. It is not my role to dictate or judge you or tell people what they should do, rather I see my role as empowering you to see your potential and together workout different strategies.
