About me and my therapy practice

In my counselling practice I aim to have flexibility in the style of my interventions to fit the needs of my client.I encourage my clients to talk about any feelings that are a source of difficulty. I intend to use the Person Centred approach to create a permissive and non-directive climate for my client’s self- directed growth. I try to demonstrate an empathetic understanding of my client’s concerns and show unconditional acceptance of the client as a person. As a CBT therapist, I aim to help the clients to uncover and alter their distortion of thoughts or perceptions in order to change their behaviour and emotional state. I have experience in counselling clients with a wide variety of issues, specially in bereavement, child bereavement, alcohol and drugs, domestic violence, depression and anxiety, stress, low self esteem and trauma. As an IAPT service provider, I deliver evidence based treatments for people with anxiety and depression (implementing NICE guidelines). During therapy, expectations are explored, goals are defined and there is a basis for therapy as a collaborative effort. The aim of my therapy is not only to solve problems but to assist clients in their growth process, so that they can better cope with problems they are facing now in the future.
