Member of BACP
My career started in mental health nursing and I have in excess of 10 years’ experience working in this field. I recently completed my Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am currently working on my accreditation with UK Association for Humanistic Psychology Practitioners (UKAHPP) which will lead to accreditation with UKCP.
My experience in both nursing and counselling / psychotherapy encompasses the following:
- Psychosocial interventions for serious mental health illnesses
- Motivational Enhancement Therapy
- Behavioural Activation
- Primal Integration Work
- Experiential approaches
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
- Family work
- Body work
What do I offer?
I offer short or long term counselling / psychotherapy to adults using a humanistic integrative approach to explore a wide range of issues such as:
Eating disorders (Anorexia nervosa and bulimia)
Affective disorders (mood disorders)
Body image issues
Approach and orientation
Using a Humanistic integrative approach I believe in helping the client realise their true potential by focussing on integrating body, mind, emotion and spirit.
Philosophy on Counselling and Psychotherapy
Whilst working as a Mental Health Nurse I developed a vast array of diverse skills which I often draw upon in counselling and psychotherapy. I believe that every person is unique and effective psychotherapy is a journey which both the client and the therapist undertake together.
I am a firm believer that everybody wants to be accepted. As your counsellor I will endeavour to create a space that encourages acceptance in an environment that is empathic, non-judgemental, that fosters a positive unconditional regard and understanding.
