We would use blended combinations of person centred, psychodynamic modalities and CBT to create some personalised coping plans to improve your life quality.
I have a vast range of experience in working with clients with varying presenting issues. I am empathic and caring and will support you in your journey. I was drawn to counselling from my own life experiences. One of the most important things I feel I can offer to you as a client is empathy. Previously I have volunteered with a grief charity as part of my journey to being the fully qualified counsellor I am now. This journey has taken me 8 years of academic study and volunteering in a variety of counselling agencies. I feel I am still on my own personal journey, which will never end in terms of learning.

Having personal experience of the counselling journey, and by working with you in an integrative way, blending the Core PC, CBT, and Psychodynamic insights, enabling you to begin to connect, or reconnect with yourself in ways you have not known or done so before.
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile today. Because I feel, we are so different in how we respond in our life’s situations, we can feel more hopelessness, struggling, feeling more overwhelmed with everyday life’s problems, and feeling more stuck in life. By working, listening and supporting you, when your experiencing higher levels of stress, and anxiety, you can find better ways to help you cope, and not be so overwhelmed with your negative thoughts, whilst learning to manage, cope, and communicate better for yourself, improving your relationships with people around you, who are part of and in your life.

I'm an Integrative Therapeutic Counsellor ( Psychodynamic , Person Centred and Systemic) and offer a warm and accepting space to share your story.
I work with individuals and I am also a Relate trained couple therapist. Are you feeling stuck at the moment with nowhere to turn and get the feeling nobody will understand? Maybe your self esteem has hit rock bottom and you lack drive and motivation to face your next move. Or do you carry a heavy emotional burden from your past that prevents you from finding happiness? You may be a couple who just don't seem to work anymore, maybe find it difficult to communicate or are getting over an infidelity or some other big obstacle. I will do my best to help you find that spark again or discover a new path which may be richer than before.

I offer clients a service individual to whatever their needs may be. As an integrative counsellor, I offer a combined approach to counselling and psychotherapy, bringing together different elements from specific therapies. I understand that taking that initial step to phone or meet with a counsellor can be scary, however, I offer a compassionate and caring client-led talking therapy which ensures you can confidentially explore whatever issues you need to. Each client's goals are explored - ensuring there is an overall understanding of what is wanted from counselling.

Life can be difficult, and humans are complex beings. It’s not surprising we can end up feeling unhappy, lost or overwhelmed. Dealing with emotions is an important part of self-care and counselling can equip you with the awareness and tools to be kinder to yourself. People often choose to have therapy when things go wrong, but you don’t have to be in crisis.

Are you considering counselling and wondering how it would help? Here are just some of the things counselling could help you achieve: You can get some support from a trained professional when life seems too difficult to bear alone. You can make sense of your feelings and thoughts about a sensitive subject in a confidential environment. You can explore a complicated problem and come out with clarity about what you want and what you need. You can come to terms with your childhood or other past events that won’t seem to go away. You can make sense of your past and current patterns and change behaviours that no longer serve you.

A good Counselling relationship is built on the ability to grow an authentic and confidential space between client and therapist. It is a space where you can bring your difficulties, worries, anxieties, frustrations, feeling sad, family and relationship issues in this space you will experience a non-judgemental and empathic space to reflect on issues that have brought you to counselling. Counselling provides the client with this unique space that is often hard to find in life’s day to day relationships. However, it is not about giving advice or opinions it is about helping the client to find their own solutions.

Our mental health is so important. All too quickly we can feel swept away by life’s demands, by the experiences or decisions that can feel thrust upon us and by the needs and wants of others. Life can be exhausting and hard to navigate, often finding the way forward feels difficult to identify. This is where counselling comes in. As a fully qualified & experienced relational therapist, my role will be one of support, curiosity and gentle guidance.

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
