Sometimes in life we might encounter struggles that requires a bit of extra support and that is when counselling can help. Counselling can help you to discover new things about yourself, resolve old issues, find news way of interacting and develop coping strategies for the future. Counselling provides a confidential space to talk about recent events which you are struggling to deal with, or past events which are still impacting on your life.
My therapeutic approach is integrative and informed by a range of therapeutic theories including psychodynamic, person-centred, attachment theory and cognitive behavioural therapy. Being an integrative therapist means that adopt a holistic approach taking account all aspects of your life and I will tailor the sessions to fit you and your unique experiences. The pace and nature of the work will be guided by you.
I believe in working relationally, which means that we will be working together with the intention to develop a secure and strong therapeutic relationship that provides the foundation from which personal growth and change can begin to occur. It might be that you know exactly what you would like to work on, and which approach you would like me to use, or you might prefer for me to make some suggestions of how we might work together and which approaches I feel might be most helpful for you.
I can offer both short and long term therapy, depending on what would be most suitable to you.
I can help with you a range of emotional difficulties including: Abuse (physical, sexual and emotional abuse), Anxiety, Bereavement, Depression, Domestic Violence, Insomnia, Life Transitions, Low self-esteem, Relationship difficulties, Stress.
