I am a BACP accredited psychotherapeutic counsellor. My counselling approach is integrative and geared to meet your difficulties. I work with a range of psychotherapeutic techniques: psychodynamic, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and mindfulness.My role as a counsellor is to facilitate an awareness and curiosity of your past and present experiences, so enabling you to gently veer from repeating unhelpful patterns of reacting to situations, to others, and toward yourself. I work with you in a safe and confidential space. The relationship I have with you is of principal importance, and all we talk of is confidential. I am not there to judge or tell you what to do, but to support you through the process of exploration to understand yourself.I have over 20 years experience working one to one with people, primarily as psychotherapeutic counsellor, but also as an occupational counsellor within the field of mental health, and as a university specific learning difficulty and mental health tutor.I have considerable experience working with young people and barriers to learning. If you have a SpLD such as ADHD or dyslexia, you may have experienced feeling misunderstood, different and disorientated which has affected your self esteem and confidence. Counselling can help navigate a more satisfying relationship to learning through understanding emotional and behavioural responses to these challenges.As a counsellor I have worked in a wide range of settings including the NHS; occupational health services; employer assisted programmes; as a telephone counsellor; as a support counsellor in return to work programmes; for private companies and in private practice.The ethical underpinning of my work is based on the BACP Ethical Framework, with a commitment to equality and inclusiveness in my work.
