After many years of working with children and families I made the decision to become a Counselor, I had really begun to notice a change in society and an increase in people unable to cope with the stresses of modern day life. Accessing support with conditions such as anxiety, stress, depression and other social phobias was becoming harder and harder.
Unfortunately with conditions like these the lack of psychical symptoms made for a lack of understanding and support, leaving people unable to get the right support and their lives spiraling out of control.
I use a wide range of skills to enable my clients to move forward with their life and a combination of approaches.
I am a Psychotherapeutic counsellor which means I look at the importance of past experiences shaping present behavior. In addition to this I also will use person centered counselling which by building unconditional positive regard, empathy and congruence helps you as a client grow in your own way which is a gentle approach to therapy.
Sometimes clients wish to just move forward without exploring the past and this is where I would use CBT cognitive behavioral therapy. This focuses on current problems, rather than the past issues and aims to change the way clients think and behave to help them deal with their problems in a more positive way.
Also I am a qualified Hypnotherapist and will also if you so wish use this during therapy this can give clients control back of their lives and help overcome many things such as social anxieties, fears phobias and many more debilitating conditions.
My main practice is on the outskirts of Poringland where I work from a log cabin in my garden, this gives my clients a calm and relaxing atmosphere which I feel aids my work as a therapist and gives you a safe secure environment for your therapy.
