I am a qualified psychotherapist and counsellor with over 6 years experience and registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), the national regulatory body for counsellors and psychotherapists.I comply with the BACP Ethical Framework offering a warm, supportive confidential service for individuals. Each person responds to the events that happen in their lives differently. Your issue, what you would like to bring to therapy is the starting point for our work together. Talking with a therapist can help you understand how to manage difficult feelings, problems, conflict and distress. A way of exploring and untangling thoughts and feelings. It can help you to move on with your life in a more fulfilling way. Anger management, bereavement, anxiety, depression, relationships issues, divorce, eating patterns, child related issues and addiction are just some of the reasons for seeking therapy. You might not feel there is a specific issue, just an uneasiness and a desire to think about that. Realising that things are difficult is the first step and you may be wondering if therapy can help. An initial session can help you see if it feels right for you at this time. How counselling can help My integrative approach draws particularly upon person-centred and cognitive behavioural therapy. We cannot change the past events in our lives but we can choose how we think about them and how they affect our current being.
