My approach to counselling

My approach is Integrative which means that I draw on techniques and theory from a number of therapeutic approaches such as Person-Centred, CBT and Transactional Analysis, as well as incorporating more creative techniques such as sandtray and therapeutic emotion cards.  In practice, that means I can tailor your therapy to meet your specific needs in a way that you feel comfortable with. 

I offer counselling to clients presenting with a range of emotional and psychological issues.  My aim is to provide you with a warm, safe and supportive environment where, together, we can explore the issue(s) that are causing you distress.  Warmth, compassion and acceptance run through all aspects of my practice; I am here to listen and to support and facilitate the change and growth necessary to improve your sense of well-being and control.

In essence, my role is to give you the space and opportunity to be truly listened to.  We will work collaboratively to establish clear goals within a mutually agreed time-frame.  Depending on what feels most appropriate we may remain focussed in the present or explore relevant experiences from the past that might be negatively impacting your experiences in the present.
