How I work
I am an Integrative Counsellor/Psychotherapist, so I will draw on a number of approaches and techniques in my work with you. I work in a client centered way and may include elements of CBT, and TA methods within my work aswell as creative therapy where appropriate. As we are all individuals I think it is important to individualise my work with each client. Whichever method I use, the most important thing is that I will work hard to create a good therapeutic relationship between us.
At our first meeting we will discuss what you hope to achieve from Counselling and we will agree a way forward together. You may find that just a few sessions are all you need or you may have issues that you wish to look at in more depth.
Working with Children
You may see a change in the behaviour or emotion of your child following an illness or bereavement or your child may have experienced bullying or abuse.
It may be that there is no apparent reason for the change in your child, but nonetheless as a parent it is a worrying time. I work in a creative way with children through play to help them work through whatever their feelings are.
If you have concerns about your child, please give me a call and I will be happy to discuss your worries and how I may be able to help.
