HOW I WORK:
I am an integrative counsellor, which is a combined approach to therapy, bringing together different elements of specific therapies, such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), transactional analysis (TA), and person-centred/ humanistic therapy. I am therefore able to meet the individual needs of the people I work with - who all have their own unique stories.
Being heard by somebody who is empathetic and non-judgemental will enable you to tell your story and explore the issues connected. Counselling offers you a safe and relaxed environment needed for change and growth, helping you to work towards reaching your full potential! Get in touch and I'll be more than happy to answer any and all questions you might have.
HOW IT'LL HELP:
I have a degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy, and have been practising as a counsellor for six years. I spent four years at the Olive Tree Centre working with women who were struggling with a whole range of issues including grief and loss, abuse, depression, low self-esteem, and relationship problems.
I have also worked for 18 months with women who had participated in the freedom Programme: an initiative aimed at helping victims of domestic abuse.
Additionally, I have been working for three years in Senior schools with children and young people aged between 11 and 18 years, exploring individual issues such as bereavement, cultural and family dynamics, school pressures, social media, anger issues, and low self-esteem. Alongside this, I also have a private practice in which I work with female adults, and both male and female clients between the ages of 11 and 18 years!
