I have been working as a counsellor and psychotherapist for 12 years now. I am committed to providing counselling and psychotherapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment. I work with individual adults with the aim of enabling you to overcome any difficulties you might be experiencing.
I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist with full accredited membership status with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I have completed a four year postgraduate diploma in transpersonal integrative counselling and psychotherapy at the Centre for Counselling & Psychotherapy Education in London. This training incorporated the four main approaches in psychotherapy, namely psychodynamic, humanistic, existential and transpersonal.
I have also completed a Certificate in Person-Centred Experiential Counselling for Depression as part of my role as an NHS counsellor. This is an evidence based short-term therapy compliant with NICE guidelines and offered in NHS Talking Therapies Services.
This therapy is designed to alleviate and improve symptoms of depression. This form of therapy combines a person-centred and emotion-focused approach. The aim of this therapy is to explore any blocked or suppressed emotions which may be outside of your conscious awareness, as suppressing your emotions can be a contributing factor to your experience of depression.
My work experience
I have spent the last 7 years working as a counsellor in an NHS hospital setting. I have also worked as a counsellor at an aftercare service for people in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction for approximately 2 years as well as working in private practice.
Areas of interest
As an NHS counsellor and a private practitioner, I have worked with individual adults with a broad range of difficulties. These include amongst others, depression and anxiety; codependency and relationship difficulties; work-related issues including stress and bullying; bereavement and loss; perimenopause/menopause difficulties; neurodiversity issues, including autism and ADHD presentations.
