Life isn’t easy; the past can haunt you, life as you know it can change in an instant, and feelings can get complicated and overwhelming. I would like to help you discover how these feelings can be managed, change for the better and how your mental health is worth the time and effort. Counselling provides a warm, safe and confidential space where for 50 minutes, the focus is completely on you.
I am a qualified Humanistic Integrative Counsellor registered with the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). I work with young adults (18+) and adults who are dealing with a wide range of issues that impact on their daily life.
I specialise in working with clients that have experienced forms of trauma, abuse and sexual violence at any point in their life. I also work with clients struggling with self-esteem, loss, identity issues, sexuality, anxiety, triggers and are experiencing health, family or relationship issues.
The foundations of my approach are based in the Person-Centred Model but I like to draw on other approaches such as the Trauma Model, attachment theories, CBT, T.A, Transpersonal, Gestalt, creative interventions and mindfulness so I can see what works best for you and the therapeutic relationship.
Having said all that, I understand that all these approaches and concepts might sound like a load of therapy jargon at the moment and that is completely fine. All that is important is that you are in a place where you are ready to talk and it would be great if we could meet up either face-to-face or online to see if you feel comfortable enough with me to share what is going on for you.
