NCS, BACP

About Me

I am licensed in the UK with 3 years of professional work experience. As an integrative counsellor, I believe there is not just one therapeutic approach which can help each client in all situations. Every person is unique and what works for one person may not work for another. I see each client as an individual with their unique set of circumstances and experiences and I use elements of different approaches to help you explore your emotions, problems and issues. I offer an honest, transparent and non-judgemental approach by accepting and valuing you.
I underpin my work with person-centred therapy which focuses on you to help you reach your full potential and I may bring in elements of psychodynamic therapy enabling me to focus on awareness, and the subconscious, just below the surface of awareness to help you understand yourself on a deeper level so you can explore how emotions and deep-rooted experiences impact your behaviour and feelings so you can then grow more as a person.
I may use body process and focus on what is really happening for you in the here and now. I also use mindfulness and grounding techniques where appropriate.
I may use elements of CBT to examine your thoughts, feelings and behaviours and help you find ways to change and eliminate unhelpful behaviours using practical strategies and tools. I have experience in helping clients with coping with grief and loss, with eating disorders as well as self- esteem, anxiety, body image and anxiety issues. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity and compassion. I will tailor our treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage and I am here to support you in that process.
