Key Worker Counselling

I am trained as a psychotherapeutic counsellor. I use an integrative approach, which means that I use my knowledge of different therapeutic approaches such as Person Centred Counselling, Psychodynamic therapy and Cognitive therapies (CBT), to find a flexible approach that best meets the needs of my clients.
I have many years of experience of working with people from all walks of life.The last few years as a counsellor and for over 20 years as a social worker. I have worked with adults, children and young people. I have worked with people with family and parenting problems, relationship problems, homeless people, and people with alcohol and substance misuse problems. I have worked with children and young people in care, and have an extensive knowledge of the care system, and of fostering and adoption.

As a counsellor I work with adults and young people who have problems with anxiety and depression, problems with addiction, people who suffer adverse effects from childhood experience and trauma, people who have problems with relationships, or with their sexuality, for example. I also work with couples.

I will provide a safe and confidential environment, where you can talk and express yourself, and feel listened to with warmth and empathy.
We all experience difficult times in our lives, often they are a result of things that have happened to us. The beliefs, thoughts and feelings we hold on to as a result of this can inhibit us from feeling happy and fulfilled. In therapy I will help you work through any areas in your life where you feel “stuck” and where you experience problems. I will help you understand and change your perspective on the issues in your life, so you can move on and manage your problems in a different and more positive way.
