I have always been curious about how our minds work and have read a lot about psychology and self development. However it has been through my personal experiences of counselling that I have discovered how powerful the therapeutic relationship can be. Being attentively and empathically listened to can result in significant self awareness and deep change. It is that experience that I am passionate about sharing with others as a therapist.
Working integratively will help to address client's individual needs. Whilst developing the counselling relationship different ways of working can be used to suit how the client likes to work to achieve what they want.
I start with a person centered focus that puts the client and their needs at the centre of the relationship and sessions. I am emphatic, warm and authentic, I listen and work with people to explore what is going on for them. Through integrative approaches we will navigate through what concerns , thoughts and feelings are being experienced.
Work with a diverse range of clients helping them find understanding and personal resolve to discover a way forwards. Teaching a counselling skills course and empowering more people to be emphatic listeners.
