My Approach

I'm an integrative counsellor, meaning I have studied the wide range of different counselling approaches available. I can now draw knowledge and skills from this broad foundation to best suit each client individually.

Areas I can support with:

  • Sexuality 

  • Gender identity 

  • Anger

  • Fears

  • Grief

  • Loneliness

  • Relationships (to yourself, family,

       friends, partners and new people)

  • Finding meaning and purpose

  • Self esteem

  • Confidence

  • Health concerns
  • Pain management 

  • Stress management

  • Current and historical abuse

Processing and resolving the above can dramatically improve resulting conditions, including;

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Addiction

  • Gender dysphoria

  • Body dysphoria

  • Eating disorders

  • Phobias

  • Weight management

  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

 

If I'm not the best person for you, I'd be happy to signpost you to a trusted colleague with the expertise you're looking for.  

My preferred theoretical approaches are:

  • Person Centred - for it's respect based approach, and focus on equality between client and counsellor.

  • Gestalt - for it's focus on wholeness, balance, physicality, and resolving ongoing issues.

  • Existentialism - for it's grounding perspectives on life and death - particularly the importance of purpose and meaning, which is vital for our well-being.

  • Psychosynthesis  - for it's very useful perspective of seeing each of us as an orchestra, made up of distinct but equally important parts (e.g. happy part, angry part, parent part etc). Counselling strengthens our inner conductor, ensuring each part plays at the right time and volume. This helps us feel more in control, without getting rid of any parts.
