More About Shanti...
I am an accredited person-centred counsellor and supervisor, currently working as Lead Counsellor for a local charity, supporting clients with complex needs. I supervise counselling volunteers and other staff, both individually and in groups.
I have been a counsellor in private practice since 2004 and, prior to this, I was a trainer and management consultant. I have also been a Counselling Lecturer and Adult Education Tutor on Counselling Courses. I have worked as a counsellor in the NHS, Higher Education and in a local hospice.
In other roles, I have worked with people with disabilities, older people and those with severe mental health issues. I thus have experience in working with: bereavement, health-related issues, stress, anxiety, depression and trauma.
More About My Approach...
I work in a person-centred, empathic and relational way bringing all my skills, knowledge and awareness to the working relationship. My experience with mindfulness means I can help you work with the ‘story’ your body tells or I can provide the opportunity to work creatively with materials and objects that I make available in the space. As you are the only expert in your internal world, I trust you to direct the pace, style and length of the work.
