Special interest areas
I have a special interest in working with Anxiety, Panic attacks. All kinds of Abuse, Trauma Dissociation, Self-harm, Intrusive thoughts. I work for a Bereavement service giving me valuable experience in this area. I have worked extensively with Emotional Distress, Stress, Suicidal thoughts, Bullying and Self esteem.
I am experienced in counselling adults, children and adolescents. I am an integrative therapist able to tailor my approach to your individual needs. I draw from various theoretical approaches, such as Psychodynamic, Person Centred and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I am passionate about my work, and I believe the counselling relationship is essential in aiding you in your difficulties.
I offer a safe environment where you are valued, listened to and accepted without judgement. You will not be alone. Exploration of the difficulties you are facing can encourage new perspectives; which enable you to move forward with increased insight, which can help promote acceptance and change.
