People are drawn to counselling for many different reasons. Life can often be challenging, and can leave you feeling alone and not knowing where you can go to be heard, understood or supported. This in turn can leave you feeling anxious, stressed, down, uncertain, afraid or unable to do what you want to do, and be who you want to be. Counselling and psychotherapy can help support you through these difficult times and changes in your life, for example through bereavement, loss of a relationship or health, family problems, stress, anxiety or depression.I am trained and work as an integrative psychotherapist, which means that I put your needs first and foremost, whilst being able to draw on a number of different approaches, so that the counselling approach is tailored for you. In this sense my approach is person-centred, with the heart of my work being the therapeutic relationship, in order to enable positive changes and development.?In my private practice I work with adults and young people with issues including depression, bereavement, anxiety, panic attacks, stress, self worth, self esteem, relationship issues, obsessive compulsive disorder, anger, trauma, gender and identity, grief and loss, personal growth and development. I also work for the NHS as an honorary counselling volunteer with the Youth Counselling Service, part of Mindsight Surrey CAMHS, and I am an associate with NTAPS working with clients using short term trauma focused CBT.I also worked for Cruse as a bereavement volunteer,Êwhere I worked with bereaved clients on both a one to one basis and facilitated group work.
