Therapeutic Approach: Humanistic

About:

The effort to cope with difficult feelings, thoughts or behaviour patterns can make living your life seem hard. If you are struggling with anxiety and panic, low self-esteem, anger or stress at work you may feel that you have lost your sense of who you are. The emotions surrounding a bereavement or relationship issues can feel overwhelming, leaving us numb and empty of joy and excitement.

 

When this is happening it can be difficult to find perspective. At these times it can be helpful to talk to someone who is not already involved in your life, in a safe, supportive, non-judgemental and confidential space.

 

As a trained counsellor, I can help you explore what’s happening, notice your patterns and gain new insight on the connections between your experiences and the way you feel and act. This understanding can open new possibilities for change, offer up new choices and get you unstuck

 

Counselling with me

I believe we all have the capacity for change, and that we are all unique individuals who respond to our circumstances in life differently. This means there is no ‘one size fits all’ answer. I will work alongside you to find the right approach to meet your needs.

 

I am a qualified, BACP registered counsellor offering individual therapy. I hold a post-graduate diploma in humanistic Therapeutic Counselling from the University of Brighton.

 

In addition to counselling, I have worked in support services including mental health peer support, women’s services and with adults with learning disabilities and / or autism.

 

I am committed to my Continuous Professional Development, including training courses, workshops and on-going supervision. This is in keeping with the BACP Ethical Framework.
