My aim is to establish safe counselling relationships that are built on respect and trust. My role is to walk alongside you without judgement as you explore your experience and how it is impacting your life now. The way I work is based on the person-centred
, which means that I consider you to be the best expert of your own experience. You are unique, so there is no model that fits you exactly. Instead, I will encourage you to explore your experience so that you can reconnect with who you really are, rather than the person that you have become due to difficult circumstances or because other people expect you to be that way.
I also use other techniques and theories that I feel are compatible with the way I work. This is known as an integrative approach
because I am integrating other theories from outside of the person-centred
tradition. In the main, these techniques relate to working with trauma and domestic abuse by building a mindfulness practice. If you have any questions about how I work, please don’t hesitate to ask.
