My Integrative Approach to Therapy

Branding Images-1.jpg

How I work 

I am trained as an integrative therapist which allows me to use a range of therapeutic tools to fit your individual needs and therapeutic goals.

 

I think the best therapeutic work comes from a strong therapeutic bond based on trust and so the relationship between us will form part of our work together.

Depending on what makes sense to you, I will use a blend of:

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

  • Humanistic

  • Gestalt

  • Psychodynamic approaches.

I have and continue to help clients with:

  • Relationship Issues

  • Perfectionism

  • Burnout

  • Anxiety

  • Addiction

  • Depression

  • Grief and Loss

  • Sexuality

  • Low self-esteem

  • Hearing voices

  • Abuse

  • Trauma

  • Self-harm

  • Suicidal thoughts

 

I offer sessions face-to face or via Zoom and these can be open-ended or time-limited. 

Qualifications & Experience 

I have always been interested in people and have worked in the health and social care sector for the past decade. 

 

I have worked with a many different people therapeutically, on a one-to-one level and in groups, across a variety of settings including: low secure forensic units, prisons, female only rehabs and on an open-ended basis in private practice.

I hold the following qualifications:

 

  • British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists (BACP) accredited postgraduate diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy from the University of East London. 

  • British Psychological Society (BPS) recognised Master of Science in Forensic Psychology from the University of Surrey. 

  • BPS Bachelor of Science from Newcastle University. 

These trainings lasted for six years in total and whilst working in health and social care I completed a National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) in Tackling Substance Misuse and Working With Young People Experiencing Domestic and Sexual Violence.
