MY APPROACH

“The privilege of a lifetime is to
  become who you really are” 

I strive to create a trusting and authentic connection with each of my clients. Through our work together, we can explore the deeper dynamics and patterns that may be influencing your thoughts and behaviours, leading to new insights and a greater understanding of yourself.

 

My work with you will be at your pace and I look forward to working creatively with you in a warm and committed relationship. I believe you hold the internal resources that can help you along the way, and I am here to support you in accessing them.

 

As a person-centred counsellor, I believe you are the expert on yourself, no-one else knows exactly what it’s like to be you. My approach is grounded in the person-centred ethos of acceptance, congruence and empathy.

I also draw upon a psycho-dynamic approach which looks at how you react and interact with the world around you, patterns that may be present and how these dynamics may be taken into other relationships. Having an accepting and trusting relationship encourages you to talk freely and openly about topics which may feel difficult. This can help you understand what you’re feeling now, why you behave in a certain way and how this affects your relationships. Emotional knots are worked out and you can feel more able to maximise your full potential.

I believe that the relationship between the therapist and client is the foundation of effective therapy and work collaboratively, attuning and adapting my approach to meet the needs of each individual client.

Whether it's dealing with past trauma, managing symptoms of anxiety or depression, or simply trying to make sense of our thoughts and feelings, seeking the guidance of a trained professional can provide valuable support and insight.

 

Continuous Professional Development (CPD)

I attend workshops and seminars on topics such as suicide awareness, dreams, play, neurodiversity, autism, ADHD, and attachment.

Regulation

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and my practice is overseen by the BACP's code of ethics to ensure that it adheres to professional counselling standards.
