About me and my therapy practice
I qualified with a BA (Hons) in Humanistic Counselling in 2011. I am a registered and accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am also a qualified and experienced clinical supervisor undertaking one to one and group supervision sessions.
I have a person-centred approach and I believe that we each have the innate ability to move forward but at times, accessing this ability can feel impossible. Events, relationships and circumstances in life can be difficult for numerous reasons. Sometimes these can feel insurmountable and cause us to lose our sense of hope. Thinking about having counselling is a major and sometimes daunting first step but is a brave move forward.
I work face to face within a wellness centre and also undertake phone counselling sessions.
Mental health can be fragile, but in therapy, by gaining an understanding of how we work as individuals and what may be going on for us internally can be illuminating and help us to grow. I see the counselling relationship as a journey made together to explore, discover and to unearth hidden resources. Working creatively with words, art and nature can also support change and re-ignite hope.
I have a wide experience of working with trauma, both with adults and young people. The impact of trauma often goes unacknowledged and is misunderstood by others. Trauma can have a continuous and wide-ranging impact on those experiencing it. I am interested in the ever-developing knowledge of neuroscience and trauma and the brain/body connection.
