My Approach

My approach acknowledges the importance of creating a respectful, empathic and trusting relationship with clients. Research has shown that this kind of therapeutic relationship creates the possibility for a person to come to terms with the issues they are facing and move forward in meaningful and positive ways.

I use an integrative counselling model. This means I draw from a variety of approaches that allows me to tailor counselling to each person’s unique needs.

I draw from person-centred, psychodynamic and cognitive behavioural models as well as Transactional Analysis and models that acknowledge the influence of relational interactions.  To read more on types of therapy click here

I am experienced in working with adults, children, adolescents, young people and students.

I also have specific training to help people explore how their spirituality or faith or meaning of life is impacted when facing difficulties.  For some this is a key part of their journey for others it is not.  As with all issues brought to counselling I follow the lead of the client, providing a non-directional, safe environment for exploring this kind of issue.

I also have many years of experience working as professional in a pressured working environment and dealing with the personal challenges this can bring.

I am committed to Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and regular supervision, which ensures the quality of my work is maintained.

I am also a member of the Association of Christian Counsellors ACC
