MBACP Psychotherapeutic Counsellor

 

About Me

I am a trained registered Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. I work from a relationship model, which considers how our past can influence our present, relationships, meanings we have made and how this effects our current relationship to ourselves, others and our world.

If you are looking for help, support and change in your life counselling is an opportunity to explore in depth; relationship issues, presenting symptoms of anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, abuse, addiction and mental health issues. To enable you to work towards a greater sense of self and choice in your life. I offer to work with you to the best of my capacity to find what it is you need from therapy.

I have extensive experience working in a wide range of therapeutic settings, placements for my training, agencies, charities and mental health services. I currently work in private practice.

I have integrated further training into my practice to enrich my practice for my client work - CRM Comprehensive Resource Model is neuro-biologically based model, which predominately works with trauma, addiction, attachment ruptures and relationship issues, for more information please look up comprehensiveresourcemodel.com. DBR Deep Brain Reorienting is another Trauma Psychotherapy which works to process trauma and attachment ruptures from the brain stem in a safe and effective process, it can also be very effective for treating a wider range of symptoms including anxiety and depression. For further information please look up deepbrainreorienting.com.

Further information

What to expect?/

First session - The first session is an opportunity to establish how we are going to work together. I use a social contract which outlines all the information regarding your rights and professional aspects of the therapeutic work.

Subsequent sessions - Sessions are pre-booked and last for 60 mins, unless otherwise arrange and contracted. I will regularly review the therapeutic work with you, to establish what is working well, and what may need more attention. It is not unusual for the focus of the therapy to change organically and this in itself is often part of the depth of the work.
