Finding The Best Fit For You
Recognising that we need support to identify and effect change is the first challenge on our journey; finding an effective counsellor is the second. With so many modalities and so many counsellors to choose from, how do we know who is going to be the best 'fit' for us?
I know that starting the process of attending therapy can be daunting which is why my therapeutic approach is client centred. I strive to create an environment where you are fully supported, accepted and free to express a full range of feelings where you can feel truly heard. Sometimes, just by being present and being heard we can move mountains within ourselves. I use a broad scope of skills and evidenced based practices to meet the unique needs of each client including Psychodynamic, Object Relations, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Humanistic and mindfulness based therapies. I am also a registered Pilates teacher and believe in the interconnectedness of mind and body for overall wellbeing.
I am fully insured and am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP); abiding by their strict ethical code of conduct at all times.
I have a wide variety of work and life experience, having previoulsy volunteered at a domestic abuse charity, supporting clients working through a wide range of difficulties. I currently provide counselling to clients at a local hospice, where again, many issues come into the counselling room. Working confidently with issues surrounding loss is important to me because when we are seeking change, we are also contemplating loss.
I currently work with adults and also offer couples counselling.
I am committed to to the highest professional standards so that I can deliver you the best quality counselling. This includes maintaining my continuous professional development; regularly attending seminars, conferences and training sessions to keep my knowledge and practice updated.
My qualifications include:
DBS checked; available on request.
I look forward to connecting with you on your journey!
