My Therapies

"If you allow yourself to be the person you are 
then everything will come into rhythm."
                                                                        John O’ Donohue

I have chosen this quote as it emphasizes that we cannot always be ourselves. This may be because life may be stressful and overwhelming at times or you can feel isolated and lonely. Counselling helps you to off load and work through issues that affect your life in a diverse or detrimental way and therefore ultimately facilitates a process towards 'being able to be yourself'.

I am a Registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I am educated to University Degree Level within the disciplines of psychology and counselling.

I am a qualified and experienced senior counsellor. 

I do respect every client as an individual and the issues and problems you may bring will be completely different from anyone else and therefore the counselling has to be right for you. 

I offer different approaches of counselling to meet clients specific needs for instance: 

Short term solution focused counselling which is suitable for clients who seek resolution with particular, often here and now issues. 

Medium or long term counselling that offers in-depth work that facilitates the process of making sense with issues in the present or from the past. 

Counselling provides a confidential space for instance to explore, examine or make sense of life experiences; find closure to past events or unresolved issues. It also provides the process where you can gain clarity if there is uncertainty or confusion and to find a sense of direction for the future. 

In addition I offer personal self-development sessions for private clients and counsellors. Self-development provides the space to understand yourself in a deep and meaningful way. 

Whatever your needs are - I will always strive to keep you safe in a supportive and confidential environment.

My approach is integrative which means that I draw from different approaches of counselling I am qualified in or have training with. My work is underpinned by Person Centred counselling that promotes empathy and unconditional acceptance for the client and the Psycho Dynamic traditions that helps to explore issues and emotions from the past or that might be hidden in the clients unconscious. 

My philosophy is that every person is unique and an individual and has the right to be treated with respect and dignity. Counselling therefore will be individually tailored to a clients needs. 

I am committed to work in a confidential, ethical and therefore sensitive, non-judgemental and non-discriminatory way that encompasses issues that are of racial and cultural diversity, sexual differences, Gender and religious issues. I am experienced working with individual clients, male and female and couples encompassing heterosexual, bi-sexual and non-heterosexual orientation.
