Often difficult times bring with them opportunities for growth and development. Life's challenges are many; bereavement, grief and loss, depression, anxiety, stress and relationship problems are commonplace. Counselling offers insight and understanding into these problems, helping the client to see things clearly, perhaps from a different perspective. I offer a caring, empathic and confidential counselling and psychotherapy service where positive solutions can be explored.
Counselling provides clients with a safe, neutral space where they will feel supported and understood rather than judged as they work their way through difficult thoughts and feelings. My aim is to give clients the tools and understanding to move forward and improve their lives. I work by specifically tailoring therapy and interventions individually to each client, thus enabling them to explore and make sense of the many aspects of their life, emotions and experience.
As an integrative counsellor, I use the theory of several different counselling models to work together with clients in a creative way to help resolve issues. Using person centered counselling, I incorporate Attachment Theory along with some Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) techniques as the client's needs dictate. I offer a private counselling service, for short term crisis intervention, time-limited or open-ended therapy depending on the client's needs and their circumstances.
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their Code of Ethics. I can be found on the Counselling Directory as well as the BACP directory of practising members.
