About Me

 

Who I Am

I’m a Person-Centred Integrative Counsellor which means I draw on a variety of theories and perspectives. For example, Phenomenology, CBT, Gestalt, Buddhism and Transactional Analysis informs the way I work, and will vary according to the problem presented and what we both feel works best for you .  

How I Work

During our sessions, whilst most of the time may be focussed on talking about your issues, I will also be interested in what is going on in your body,  so I will often use techniques such as breath work, visualisation, mindful meditation, art and gestalt chair work. I sometimes invite clients to work on issues at home, if they want to, as part of the work.  It can often be helpful in changing distorted thinking patterns and encourages the client to become more self-aware.

Experience

7 years working with depression, anxiety, bereavement, relationships, self esteem.
