If you’re reading this, it’s likely that you’re feeling the need - or desire - to seek some help and support in your life, and perhaps make some changes by looking for the help of a counsellor.
You may have something specific that you are looking to change or gain help with. It may be that you are feeling stuck and experiencing feelings of depression, anxiety, uncertainty and feeling overwhelmed.
I am trained in using and incorporating different psychotherapy approaches and models in my practice, this means I work as an integrative therapist and counsellor, combining three established counselling and psychotherapy approaches. These are Psychodynamic, Person Centred and CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). I am able to adapt the most beneficial aspects of these approaches to tailor my work to your individual needs.
I believe relationships are at the heart of what it is to be human and so the core emphasis of my therapeutic approach is relational. I can work with you to explore the significant relationships in your life, whether that be with family or friends, work colleagues or partners, as well as the relationship you have with yourself. This is an approach that can help individuals recognise the role relationships play in shaping our daily experiences, and gain an understanding of some of the patterns appearing in the thoughts and feelings we have toward ourselves.
I have several years experience working with issues around depression, sadness, anxiety, anger management, generalised anxiety disorders, loneliness, eating disorders, relationships, family issues, low self esteem, stress, panic attacks, career and employment, bereavement and loss, self harm, physical, emotional and sexual abuse and assault. I am an LGBTQ+ affirmative counsellor and have experience in working with individuals around homophobia, bullying, relationships, gender and sexual identity.
I am a registered counsellor with The British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and a therapist member of the Counselling Directory.
As an integrative counsellor, I can work with clients in an open ended manner, where we don't set a limit on the number of sessions you see me for. I also work with clients providing short term and time limited therapy, this can be helpful for individuals who would like to work on something more specific for a set period of time during our counselling sessions. You may not have a sense of how you would like to work at the beginning of our therapy, this is something we can explore and review on a regular basis.
