I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor and member of the BACP. I work with adults and young people 11 yrs + to address many different issues but in particular I love to help people to:
- feel more relaxed and confident.
- overcome the legacy of past experiences.
- find calm and space in the face of overwhelm and stress.
- quieten harsh inner critics or perfectionism.
- improve their relationships.
- cope with bereavement.
How I Work
As an integrative counsellor, I take into account you as an individual and your circumstances, and blend elements of different approaches to help you explore your problems. My blend includes various humanistic elements such as Person-centred, Gestalt, Internal Family Systems, Transactional Analysis, Narrative Therapy, Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and CBT.
At its core, my philosophy is that all people are good and capable of self realisation. This focuses on you rather than me being the expert on yourself. I will help you find your own way – whether that’s making effective internal shifts, external changes or finding ways of coping with your problems. I will support you by giving you the time and space you need whilst providing a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment. As the client you have control over what you bring to therapy and how you wish to work.
Our therapy work can be a mix of online, telephone or face to face in Plymouth or Tavistock.
I offer a free initial 20 minute phone or video consultation where you can ask any questions and we can see if we are a good fit for what you are looking for.
