BACP Registered and Accredited Counsellor & Psychotherapist.
Counselling Approach - Integrative, Person Centred, Solution Focused, Existential, CBT, Transactional Analysis (TA).
I am a dedicated and committed practitioner with over 18 years’ experience of working on a wide range of presenting issues and helping those in distress in a safe, caring, sensitive and supportive way.
My approach is Integrative/Person Centred which basically means therapy recognises that each person and their life experience is unique. Therefore, therapy is tailored to the needs of each individual client with the aim of empowering them to affect change, produce positive outcomes and experience improved health and wellbeing.
I have particular interest and experience of working Existentially with the whole person to promote self-efficacy and relapse prevention by integrating holistic health with therapy, including mindfulness; relaxation; walk & talk; positive psychology and the use of metaphor and visualisation to help clients articulate and express their thoughts, feelings and emotions and make sense of their internal and external world.
I also specialise in working with trauma and abuse and have worked with NSPCC, Domestic Abuse Services, Rape and Sexual Abuse Services. I have also campaigned for and successfully set up several School Counselling Services over the years.
I have extensive experience of counselling via Health Care Providers, Occupational Health Services and EAPs/Workplace counselling.
I offer long, medium, short term/ brief counselling and single session therapy (SST).
