I have been working with people since 1999.
I am trained and qualified in various complementary health modalities including somatic emotional release work. I have also trained as a life coach and have experience in mentoring and supporting people both in groups and as individuals in personal development.
I have a keen interest in neuroplasticity and also in various approaches to working with trauma. I am a trauma-sensitive certified practitioner with Heartmath, I have also trained in Brainspotting and have an awareness of the Internal Family Systems modal and I'm qualified as a therapeutic counsellor and psychotherapist. Working with the person centred approach I draw on all my experience to work with my clients in a collaberative and integrative way, using different approaches as feels appropriate. We are all unique and each person may require a different way of working.
I aim to build a good therapeutic relationship with my clients since this is a prerequisite for beneficial counselling and therapeutic work.
My experience includes but is not limited to working with people dealing with issues such as trauma, chronic illness, abuse, self-harm, substance abuse, anxiety, caring for others, Physical disease, stress and bereavement.
I offer you a space where you can be listened to in a non-judgemental way and where you can explore your feelings and thoughts or ideas. I view the therapeutic relationship as a partnership where trust is built and my clients are supported to find their own solutions and to work through past traumas.
Your confidentiality is of the upmost importance to me and I undertake regular supervision and continuing professional development, seeking constantly to develop myself as a person and as a counsellor.
