MBACP, Ad. Dip. Integrative Counselling & Therapy
Hi. I am an integrative therapist who believes that we all have the ability to feel better if we are prepared to explore our inner workings. This can be a difficult task and requires a number of factors being present and available.
It is my task to provide the time and space necessary to make this possible whilst offering warm encouragement, acceptance and perhaps insight into what might have happened which has caused a person to feel unhappy, worried, confused or stuck.
As an integrative therapist I have learned a range of theories including, humanistic, psychodynamic, CBT, gestalt, Jung and TA.
The benefit of having such a diverse and extensive range of theories means that I am able to blend these ideas in a way which helps me and my client understand how, when and why they have developed as they have and also offer a wider view of what is possible and useful in order to move forward.
My aim as a therapist is to help my client achieve their own goals by working through and accepting the events of their life and/or forgiving themselves for their perceived mistakes; sometimes we do not even know why we feel the way we do.
As such I offer open-ended counselling. This does not mean a client will necessarily be working longer term; what it does mean is that it is the client’s choice as to how many sessions they would like.
Most of my work has been with adults but I also have experience with teenagers and the elderly.
Some of the issues I have experience in cover: alcohol and drug addiction, borderline personality disorder, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, self-harm, sexual identity and orientation, bullying, sexual and physical abuse, neglect, confidence, death anxiety, loss, anger, career, autonomy and independence, low self-esteem, relationship issues.
I hold an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Therapy and a current Enhanced CRB certificate.
As well as having my private practice I also work for two agencies, one offering counselling for people between 13-25 years old and the other within an NHS hospital. I have previously worked as a counsellor within a drink and drug agency.
My fees are £45.00 per 50 minute session
