Accredited Integrative Counsellor (MBACP)
As a result, I have lots of experience with common mental health challenges such as relationship
problems, managing stress, coping with depression and/or anxiety, burnout, bereavement and loss, suicide and sexual assault/abuse.
Currently, I am working with a range of client issues and experiences, these include unprocessed experiences from the past that are impacting life today, managing and working through current psychological and emotional issues, and clients with self-development aspirations for the future.
How I work:
I’m am an Integrative Counsellor because I am grounded in Clarkson’s 5 stage relational model. Which, loosely described, means I will consider psychodynamic aspects of my client’s bringings (Working with the unconscious etc and protective behaviours) and am also grounded in a person-centred, relational approach.
This gives me flexibility in my practice that allows me to adapt my approach to what my client developmentally needs.
As a therapist, I will be interested to hear about your experiences, your relationships and how you view yourself and the world around you. It can be helpful to explore any recurring patterns in your life and how past experiences may be holding you back.
In exploring different aspects of yourself and your life, I’ll help you to gain insight and consider new perspectives to help you find a way forward. As well as helping you create a greater sense of your own potentiality.
What to expect:
After a free initial chat on the phone or via zoom, we will meet for an initial 50-minute session, so you can meet me, talk about your problem, what you’d like to gain from coming to therapy and decide whether you feel comfortable talking to me.
Towards the end of the session, we can decide if we want to work together or you can have some time to think about it and let me know.
If we decide to continue to work together, our sessions will take place on the same day, at the same time each week.
While therapy and counselling are a collaboration it is important to remember that you are the expert on yourself. My role is more like walking alongside you, rather than
leading the way.
I am here to help you make sense of your challenges and edge you towards the holy grail of therapy – self-acceptance.
My fee is £60 per 50-minute session.
