Personal Statement

My way of working is Integrative-relational. This means that I draw on a range of different theories to support my work. It also means that I believe that, when you are in counselling, it is the relationship between you and your counsellor that is most important in supporting you when you are distressed, helping you to have insight into yourself and your relationships, and finding new ways to take your life forward. Because of this, it is important to me to create a warm and respectful relationship where you feel safe enough to explore and come to terms with what may be troubling you.

 

I value the link between the mind and body and how our physical and mental health are intertwined. I have found that using mindfulness and brain/body based experiential methods can help us regulate our internal states and restore and repair the connection between our minds and our bodies.
