I am a person-centred counsellor and my approach and philosophy is that you can harnesses your natural self-healing process.
I believe that the key component of the therapeutic alliance/relationship is having an open dialogue based on trust where you see me as a guide supporting you on your therapeutic journey instead of an expert giving you advice.
I believe in the basic right to freedom and in therapy my belief is that you have the right to be free to be who you want to be and live the life you want to live. In essence to become the real you.
The areas I specialise in and have experience treating are:
*chronic health problems
I have a warm and friendly manner which helps clients to feel at ease. I have been practicing for 6 years in the Bristol area and I trained at the West of England University and hold a Post Graduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling. I also, trained at Severn Talking Therapies and hold an Advanced Diploma in Relational Supervision.
I chose to become a therapist because I enjoy helping people to work on issues that are affecting their lives in a negative way and to be a supporting facilitator helping to enable someone like you to change and enjoy life.
A recurring theme I have noticed working with client’s is shame and how it underpins many issues people come to therapy for. Shame eats away at your belief that you are able to change. However, talking about shameful feelings and emotions in therapy can empower you to let go of those thoughts and feelings and begin to change.
The most profound thing I have learned as a therapist is that we are all flawed in some way and yet we all have the power within us to change how we relate to ourself and others. In essence becoming kinder to yourself and others.
