It can take a lot of courage to ask for support when you're feeling low, anxious, or when life is throwing challenges your way.
As a qualified integrative counsellor, I offer a calm, compassionate and confidential space to help you untangle your thoughts and feelings away from your everyday life; where you can unburden, and shine fresh light on your difficulties, and navigate periods of change or loss.
We'll work together creatively to find a focus and approach that works for you, to help you heal, grow and find a way forwards.
Who I work with:
I work with adults and young people (18+) on issues relating to anxiety, stress, panic, low mood, bereavement, loss, self-esteem, abuse, relationships, anger, life changes, and more.
Please be aware that I am currently not working with clients who are actively suicidal, but I would be happy to help you find the right support if this is the case for you.
As an integrative therapist, I draw on various theoretical models in order to tailor an approach to suit you:
Humanistic / Person-centred therapy--you're the expert on you, so sessions are led by what you bring. I provide empathy, compassion and guidance to support your growth.
Psychodynamic --drawing out difficult and/or unconscious feelings and patterns of behaviour to enable change. Acknowledging the impact of early relationships on the ways in which we relate to one another.?
I also draw inspiration and help you learn coping tools from:
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
I believe it is important to acknowledge power structures, and intersecting oppressions (such as race, class and sexuality) and their impact on clients' mental health.
I am currently offering face to face at The Practice Rooms in Southville, or outdoor counselling. Alternatively we can work online or by telephone.
