About me and my therapy practice
I provide counselling from my private practice at my home in Trowbridge, Wiltshire. This is a private room providing a safe and confidential space for our work together. I can offer various daytime and evening appointments throughout the week.
My training helps me to provide you with a reliable, regular, non-judgmental space where you can begin to talk about whatever is on your mind. I work in what is called an integrative way, using a wide range of therapeutic models, but primarily focusing on humanistic counselling. In essence, that means I start with a basic belief in your potential to heal and grow, and I see my job as a counsellor as being able to help you achieve that potential.
I also work in a very psychodynamic way. This means that I believe that your past experiences can have an effect on your present reality, in a way that you may not even be aware of. I can help by focusing on the relationship between us, to bring the way you relate to others to your awareness and facilitate your understanding of yourself, providing healing and change.
I also use other approaches in my work such as transactional analysis, motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioural therapy and motivational enhancement therapy.
I have previously worked as a volunteer counsellor for Swindon and Wiltshire Drug and Alcohol Services and as a Recovery Worker for Turning Point, gaining experience of working with clients of all ages and many different life issues and particularly helping clients recover from addiction. During this period, I co-facilitated the Introduction to Change, Recovery Skills, Mindfulness and parenting group.
