I am a highly skilled BACP Accredited Integrative Counsellor with an interest in working with young people. I have extensive training, in addition to a wealth of experience gained from a varied background of youth work, school-based counselling services, university student services, equine assisted coaching and many years of private practice and charity work, which has helped me achieve very good outcomes for the clients I work with at the wellbeing centre.
The adults that I work with also benefit from the patient-centred approach that emphasises the importance of the therapeutic relationship. I have a high level of commitment to all my patients at and have a genuine interest in the experiences everyone I meet. I offer an atmosphere of warmth and gentle non-judgement in my care.
I also welcome the inclusion of a patient-led creative process whereby individuals can be encouraged to explore their inner worlds by way of drawing and other artistic media. The Integrative approach that I am trained to use allows the inclusion of aspects of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), solution-focused interventions, along with classical psychodynamic insight from dreams, childhood experience, trauma work and mindfulness.
