My Approach

I am an integrative, psychotherapeutic counsellor, which means that I draw upon different types of therapy in order to tailor my approach to your individual and ongoing needs. I take my lead from you, as I believe that you are the expert on yourself. Together, we will explore from whatever part of your journey you’re on; I’d like to help you discover more choice in how you respond to situations and more movement in places you might feel stuck. I have witnessed and been exposed to many traumatic and stressful situations. I am aware of the stress, anxiety and all the associated emotions that can create difficulty in our lives when we don’t, or can’t, acknowledge our feelings – both to others and, more importantly, to ourselves. Effective therapy requires that the counsellor exhibits respect, authenticity, empathy and acceptance. I work very hard to cultivate and nurture a loving and empathic stance with my clients. It is my hope that the acceptance and positive regard the client feels through our work will eventually become internalized and they will begin to feel more accepting and positive toward themselves.

About Me

Education:
I have an Advanced Diploma and a Batchelor of Science Honours Degree in Integrative Counselling. I am trained in the fields of psychodynamic therapy, cognitive-behavioural therapy and humanistic therapy. I keep my knowledge and skills updated by regularly attending workshops, courses and conferences; recent training includes the following: grief counselling, working creatively, body awareness, working with diversity, trauma and addiction. In addition to my counselling qualifications, I have a Law Degree, Post Graduate Teaching Certificate, Masters Degree in Education and National Professional Qualification in Headship. I am a member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

Experience:
I trained as a psychotherapeutic counsellor after an extensive career in teaching and school leadership. I have worked as a volunteer for The Samaritans and Citizens Advice Bureau. For the past two and a half years, I have worked for 4Cs (Centres For Christian Care and Counselling) and Off The Record. I am experienced in working with clients who have found themselves dealing with a range of issues including depression, anxiety, relationship problems, grief, addiction, sex abuse, emotional abuse and trauma. My experience also includes working with neuro-diverse clients and people with intersecting social identities which have led them to experience oppression, domination and/or discrimination.
