(Please note that I am not taking any new clients at present).
Taking the decision to look for counselling is a big step and one that you may have been mulling over for some time.
The fact that you have got this far indicates that you are motivated to address your difficulties. Your motivation and willingness to explore what is going on for you, will serve you well.
I am a Senior Accredited BACP Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist. I have almost 20 years experience working with individuals and groups in both clinical and private practice settings. Typically the issues that clients bring include addiction, anxiety, depression, fertility, loss, personal development, relationship difficulties, self esteem and work-related stress. However, I am also experienced in working with clients with a history of sexual abuse, personality disorder and PTSD.
In addition I support clients who are caring for someone else who is experiencing physical or psychological difficulties.
I believe it is the strength of the client/therapist relationship that contributes towards achieving the best outcome. My philosophy is that you already have the resources you need to heal, and that recent events or difficulties may have dampened your awareness of them or confidence in them. My role is to help you make choices about how you want to change and work with you to achieve this....... at your pace.
It is not always necessary to focus on all in your life that has gone wrong. It is more about how you want to be.
My style of work is flexible and creative, integrating a number of theoretical approaches. Primarily I am client led and solution focused, integrating other interventions including CBT, visual imagery, relaxation techniques, mindfulness and body/sensory awareness
I am also a BACP Senior Accredited supervisor supporting qualified counsellors/psychotherapists and those currently studying on Degree or Diploma counselling courses.
I have a private practice in a quiet village setting near Lutterworth.
