Therapies and Specialisms

My professional University and BACP accredited training equipped me with a range of skills and theoretical approaches to draw from including person-centred, integrative, humanistic, cognitive, behavioral, self-compassion, mindfulness and psychodynamic techniques.

I believe we’re all different and that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to psychological support.

However counsellor training doesn’t just stop when you qualify! I’m registered with the BACP which means I agree to undertake a minimum of 30-hours study every year, allowing me to continuously develop my skills as I evolve as a practitioner.

Currently I am really interested in relational therapy which helps us to look deeply at our psyche and understand how and why we relate to others in certain ways.

Working in collaboration we will develop a strong, secure and safe relationship which will act as the catalyst for facilitating your change. I think it’s helpful to view my role as a kind of guide – that saying, I categorically will not be telling you what to do, or how to do it! Your goals are your own and I will help you to access your own internal wisdom – your intuition. Although I certainly don’t profess to be a mind reader, I do have an ability to see beyond the words – listening to the music I think some people call it!!

Areas of Specialism:

Love and relationships, anxiety, depression, stress, increasing motivation, finding your true potential, increasing confidence/ self-esteem, abandonment/ rejection, abuse (including childhood), attachment issues, personality disorders (including BPD), sexual issues and self-harm.

Sessions:

Understandably one of the first questions people ask is how long will I be in therapy? It’s almost impossible to answer this – in context – if you were to ask me how long is a piece of string, I’d need to know how long the string was to begin with!

We all go at our own pace in counselling and the length of time spent is usually relative to the depth you wish to explore and how quickly you grasp the concepts. Unlike many counsellors, I do not ask anyone to commit to a minimum of sessions. My sessions are open-ended which means that you determine when you are ready to finish- only you know when the work has been done. We will review our progress together on a regular basis and make sure we are on-track with your goals.
