I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist with over 20 years of experience working in private practice and the voluntary sector. I work with individuals, couples, groups and families. I also offer supervision to practising Psychotherapist and Counsellors. I am a BCACC registered Counsellor and a UKCP registered Psychotherapist.
As an Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist I work together with the client to explore and understand their world, attending to the whole person, their perceptions, thoughts, feelings and physical experiences. I consider the nature and quality of the therapeutic relationship formed between therapist and client to be of primary importance and to play a significant part in the healing process. I draw on an integration of theoretical models in order to meet the needs of each individual client.
Over the years I have worked with a wide range of client issues and have extensive experience of working with couples who have relationship difficulties and with individuals. I have a particular interest in attachment issues and the potential for reparative work with individuals who have experienced early attachment deficits. I provide a safe and confidential setting in which to explore your concerns and issues helping to make you aware of the underlying patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving that may limit your potential to have healthy and satisfying relationships and a fullfilling life.
If you decide to come and see me we will have an initial session to discuss your concerns and issues. You will have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the process of therapy and decide whether I am going to be the right therapist for you.
