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 how your body is responding  so I will often use techniques such as Focusing and mindful meditation.  I sometimes invite clients to work on issues at home,  as it can often be helpful in changing distorted thinking patterns and encourages the client to become more self-aware.

Experience

20 years’ experience of working with special needs, in particular Asperger’s and autism and ADHD.

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