The curious paradox is that when we accept ourselves just as we are, then we begin to change. Carl R. Rogers

My Approach

In my practice you will find a confidential, respectful, supportive and non-judgemental environment where you can address and explore your emotions, fears and worries.

My aim is to build up a trusting relationship that supports young people in exploring and understanding their feelings in order to bring about change. 

 

The way I work is based on an Integrative approach that I tailor to suit the specific needs of the young person I am working with. I incorporate Person-Centred, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and Psychodynamic theory into a working model. Where appropriate I also use creative strategies such as art, clay, sand tray, and role play as this can help express and process feelings and can be adapted to suit different developmental levels. 

 

 

One of the most important elements of counselling is the connection you have with your counsellor. I know how important it is for you to feel hear, validated, and aligned with the person you are choosing to trust. 

I work with a broad range of issues and have particular experience in working with young people who are experiencing anxiety, and those with Autistic Spectrum Disorder.

I work accordingly to the ethical framework for good practice in counselling & Psychotherapy as specified by the British Association for Counsellors & Psychotherapists (BACP).
