I completed my Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling at the University of South Wales where I am currently working towards a MA in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and am currently working towards accreditation.

 

My training within an Integrative framework has allowed me to develop a collaborative approach to counselling, where the creation of an empathic, non-judgemental, trusting relationship between client and counsellor is the foundation for exploratory work. I recognise that feelings of distress, confusion and loss of meaning can be overwhelming for many people. My aim is to offer clients the opportunity to process thoughts and feelings in a safe and supportive environment and to encourage self-empowerment and increased resilience.

 

My approach to counselling is influenced by a Relational Psychodynamic model. This model focuses on the way we relate to others, and how our early relationships have profound implications for our well-being in adult life.

I am also influenced by the creative aspects of Gestalt theory: I offer the opportunity to explore relationships through the use of chair work, for example. The importance of experiencing/recognising bodily sensations can, I feel, also be helpful in unlocking feelings of being restricted or trapped. I also, where appropriate, encourage the exploration of stories, images, films and music for example, as a way of facilitating a sense of self. In looking at different aspects of the self that we present to others, for example, we are able to access emotional responses that may not be fully in our awareness.

Underlying my counselling work is an awareness of existential issues – the inescapable aspects or limitations of being alive. I feel that providing a space to discuss these issues without fear of judgement can help to restore a sense of self-acceptance.

I have experience of working with adults of all ages and with a wide range of difficulties. These include anxiety, stress and depression, fertility and pregnancy, grief and loss, identity issues, low self-esteem, self-harm and suicidal thoughts, trauma and abuse.

I have further specialised training in working with emotional, physical and sexual abuse and the associated symptoms of trauma.
