The most important aspect of counselling is the relationship. Only when you feel comfortable with your counsellor will you be able to tell true story honestly. I will provide a safe, confidential space and my use counselling skills to help you unpick and understand your worries and feelings, allowing you to safely explore and become aware of what is currently bring you distress. When we become aware of something, we then gain the ability to change it.
I support most concerns because the person-centred model does not specialise in specific issues, but instead offers you the safe space to be able to talk about anything and everything that's on your mind, to be able to then decide your own path to take. Like cleaning out a cupboard: you pick up each item, look at it and decide whether you want to put it back as it is, clean it before putting it back, or just throw it away.
I do specialise in supporting self-injury, neurodiversity/Autism/ADHD, historical abuse and young people's issues.
I mainly offer person-centre counselling, but I do have additional qualifications in CBT, Gestalt and the use of creative methods, which I integrate if suitable.
Initially we would have a telephone call, or if phones are 'too much', then via email, this is a chance to get a feel for whether what I offer would suit you, and to also get a sense of whether we feel comfortable together. We would then meet for our initial session.
Children, young people and adults.
As part of the work with young people, there is also the invitation to work with families as part of the therapeutic process. This involves parents being invited into the initial and end sessions (with the agreement of the young person).
