My Therapeutic Approach

A Tailored Approach For You

I provide a safe and respectful space to support my clients to discuss any issue they feel is worrying them or causing them distress; empowering and supporting them to make the adjustments needed for change and a more fulfilled life.

I work as an integrative therapist, which means I am trained and experienced in a number of counselling models as appropriate for my client's individual needs and issues. 

 

Integrative counselling takes into account a client's thoughts, feelings, perceptions, behaviours and physical experiences. It enables me to provide a holistic, collaborative approach in supporting my clients.  The person-centred approach underpins all my work with clients which means that I believe clients have all the resources within them to move through their challenges.  My role is to support and guide you in that process by being empathic, transparent, non-judgemental so that I can help you to trust and have the confidence in your own ability to make your own decisions and choices.

 

Some of the models I work from include:

 

  • Gestalt Therapy

  • Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
