Counselling is a space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings, to be in a relationship where you don't feel judged, but accepted and supported to implement the changes you want, to work through your issues. Counselling with me is about the quality of the relationship, is about being human and connected. Being listened to and having the time and opportunity to voice your feelings, can be healing and freeing.
My way of working is based on different theories: CBT (challenging unhealthy patterns of thinking and relating to self or others), psychodynamic (exploring childhood experiences and relationships) and humanistic (working with you as an unique individual with a unique life story, in the context of a relationship based on empathy and acceptance).
I offer talking therapy, but also powerful art interventions for when there are no words to express unbearable and painful thoughts and feelings.
I work under the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) Ethical Framework and under close clinical supervision. It means that you can be assured that, as a therapist, I will always work in your best interests and that my counselling services meet the required expectations for good practice in counselling and psychotherapy.
I have a special interest in the parent-child relationship. If you are a parent that is struggling, or if you think that your child might need a space to explore his thoughts and feelings, I can help. I have years of experience in helping parents and children to have a meaningful and healthy relationship.
I have been working with clients that presented with:
•alcohol and drug addictions
•anxiety and depression
•loss and bereavement
•difficulties in the work place
•everyday life stress
