About me and my therapy practiceHelping clients suffering with work stress using counselling. I trained and then worked for 7 years within one of the largest charities in Gloucestershire working as an accredited MBACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists) staff counsellor and assessor. Alongside working for a national addiction charity for several years before embarking on private practice in Bristol. I have over 10 years counselling experience and continue to develop my skill set attending regular professional development courses and seminars. I have previous experience of working within a large PLC sales company and understand the pressures and expectations within the corporate environment.Psychodynamic counselling, this focuses on unconscious and conscious thought processes. Sometimes experiences in the past can influence our present behaviour beyond our current awareness, causing difficulties with relationships and other important areas of life. I work to try and help you come to your own understanding of those influences and experiences creating space to be curious about our choices and how we can then redefine, reposition, and move forward. Offering a confidential space tailoring the sessions to the individuals needs using a combination of psychodynamic, mindful, and cognitive approaches.Possible beneficial outcomes of counselling: Processing past events enabling a shift to move forward. Learning healthier ways to cope with stress. A greater understanding of your part in relationship dynamics. Enabling a space to think about kindness and compassion towards yourself and others. Understanding of self and triggers for addictive or unhelpful behaviours. Better capacity to trust in yourself to handle life’s challenges. A capacity for greater self care and creative expression.
