“I am an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist, taking aspects from CBT, Person-Centred Therapy and Attachment Theory to tailor the best support for the client. I find this combination gives clients a range of ways to manage their issues, to understand and grow through hard times. I am a member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and am bound by their ethical framework to provide a safe and effective service to clients.
What the client brings to the session is the most important to me; the significance of this speaks volumes about what is going on for them and how they wish to work with it. Sometimes it takes time to understand this issue before we move forward but, in my opinion, understanding ourselves and how our minds function is the most important part of therapy.
I generally work with clients to decide on the length of their therapy, some clients will only need a few sessions to find their strength to tackle their issues, whereas others like the concept of exploring their mind and understanding themselves on a deeper level. We will discuss this often to review progress and check the needs of each client.
I believe that sometimes, we all need a helping hand to cope with life’s twists and turns. I have found that sometimes the most important thing is for another person to listen and understand their struggles without judgement. Someone to help us to accept ourselves. I hope that I can be part of your journey to a calmer life.”
