My Approach

I am offering you a Humanistic approach to counselling, driven by my view of everyone's individual need to be seen and heard as important to be valued.

I work with you towards your own needs and goals which can be ever developing in therapy, change is sometimes wanted but can be so hard to make happen on your own.

My approach comes from a place that is accepting and warm, non-judgmental and values you and your uniqueness. I aim to help you feel whole and begin to start to like if not love all of yourself, even the parts you may hide or dont like but they have helped you manage on your life journey so far.

I am happy to work either short-term or long-term depending on your need for support and what you would like from therapy. I appreciate that life happens around us and sometimes you will change whether you need more support, less or even need a break from counselling which I am always happy to discuss with you to make sure you are getting what you need from our sessions.

I have experience of working within short-term therapy with clients towards specific goals we set based on their needs which can include coping mechanisms for managing in stressful situations and towards finding triggers for their anxiety or depression to enable a clearer understanding of when their condition could worsen.

I also work with long-term clients who have had a range of difficulties including anxiety, depression, bereavement and grief, trauma, eating disorders, stress, work-related stress, panic attacks, childhood trauma, bipolar, relationship difficulties, relationship breakdowns, betrayals and affairs, emotional abuse, physical abuse, sexual abuse, suicidal thoughts, low self esteem and building confidence, improving communication and problems with addictions, lack of identity and family issues to name a few.

I am happy to commit to an open ended contract whereby we review regularly (every 6 weeks), to ensure we are still where you want the therapy to be and that if anything is not working we can address it and for open honesty from us both to be able to work together for a better understanding of what you are going through and how i can support you in the way you need.

I work with you towards a therapeutic relationship where my aim is to identify and look at areas you would like to work towards growth and change. Counselling is a talking therapy, but I can also offer other creative ways of working towards expressing your difficulties or emotions that can allow your feelings to be less overwhelming. If you do not have a connection to your feelings currently, this can help them to communicate on an unconscious level.
