Why seek counselling?

Deciding to see a counsellor is often the first difficult step, especially if you have never experienced counselling before. We all experience ups and downs which we often manage by talking them through with friends or family. Sometimes though this is not always possible or enough and no matter who or where we are in our lives, many of us find ourselves facing difficulties that disrupt our emotional wellbeing. You may feel overwhelmed, isolated, anxious or even stuck and depressed or perhaps are grieving, living with unresolved trauma, significant life changes, in pain or ill. Sometimes, it can be difficult to put a finger on what is troubling you and it’s times like these it can be helpful to seek therapy. Whatever it is that is troubling you, I will listen empathically and support you.

What you can expect

As an integrative psychotherapeutic counsellor, I am trained to use a range of modalities and place emphasis on the therapeutic relationship. The relationship is at the heart of my practice as I believe this is what enables us to heal. Being trained in different modalities means I adapt my approach, drawing on different theories depending on your needs.

I work from a Person-Centred approach which enables me to see the world from your viewpoint. Transactional Analysis offers a framework in understanding your patterns of behaviour and how you communicate with others and yourself. Gestalt brings awareness and offers creativity. I have numerous CPD’s in Polyvagal Theory which I believe works well

with my core modalities and may use this model within our work, focusing on the fight, flight, freeze response.

I value, my clients as a whole unique person and understand it takes time to build a trusting therapeutic relationship. My warm, inviting non-judgemental approach offers a safe space for you to use to explore at your own pace, what is important to you. Working together through the therapeutic relationship, can help make sense of your thoughts, feelings and life experiences, empowering you.
