BA (Hons) degree in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy. Fully accredited member of IACP
I have been practising both online and in person for the past two years working with clients ranging from adolescents to elders. I specialise in areas of anxiety, panic attacks, & depression and use numerous models and methods while working collaboratively with clients to gauge what’s effective for them. These include person-centred, CBT, Schema, Psychodynamic, Attachment, Internal Family systems, Polyvagal Theory and Choice Theory and others.
Using both top down (changing the way we think) and bottom up (looking at nervous system states and using the connection with the body to learn new ways to understand ourselves), I aim to provide a holistic approach to therapy. When we attempt to separate our bodies, emotions, mind and spirit, working on one and leaving the rest, we do so to our own detriment. Each part is deeply connected.
I am caring, approachable, empathetic, and passionate and helping others. I know that the trust built between therapist and client is the most important foundation for working together. Sometimes you may just need a place to speak openly and be heard, without feeling judged and without others trying to help by silver lining, minimising, or otherwise trying to ‘fix’ your problems, other times you may be fed up, and need a guide with a pragmatic approach, and easily actionable steps that bring about change.
I am passionate about helping my clients eel empowered to make choices in their lives rather than unconsciously repeating patterns that feel out of their control. This is how cycles are broken.
If you’re finding yourself stuck in patterns of behaviour you can’t seem to get out of; people pleasing, anxiety in relationships, shutting down or overreacting to situations, holding yourself to impossible standards and then lurching into chaos, you’re not alone. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch, I would be delighted to meet with you.
