Types of therapy and theory. I chose to work in this way as I believe that we are all unique individuals with different ways of seeing the world, and different ways of thinking and processing our feelings. I am mainly influenced by Humanistic, Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural and Neuropsychological perspectives of human development and emotion. I am also interested in Mindfulness/Mentalisation and how they can help people gain a greater sense of control over their emotions.It is important to me to work collaboratively and flexibly using skills and techniques that fit you as an individual. I will also offer you a safe, private space to fully explore your thoughts and feelings. A fundamental part of the way I work is to fully accept people as they are, without judgement, showing warmth, kindness and empathy.Before qualifying as a Counsellor & Psychotherapist I worked for many years both within the NHS and the Charity Sector with people facing difficult issues and events that impacted on their mental health and wellbeing. I have worked a lot with people experiencing anxiety, depression, brain injury, loss, relational issues, long-term conditions, phobias, dementia and stress. I have also faced challenges in life and have had my own therapy to work through my thoughts and feelings. This personal experience means I understand what itÕs like to seek therapy and sit with a new therapist, uncertain about where the process might take me.My Qualifications:¥PGDip Counselling & Psychotherapy¥MSc Cognitive Neuropsychology¥BSc (Hons) Applied Psychology¥Certificate in CoachingPlease call or email me to arrange an initial session where we can talk about the things youÕd like to bring to therapy and we can decide if weÕre a good fit.
