Face to face counselling for individuals
Client centred, integrative and psychodynamic approach
I approach each client and each session in an individual and client-led way, using my training and experience to
follow and explore where and how the client needs. I use a non-judgemental approach and work toward developing with the client a safe and open space to express their true feelings, gain clarity about their situation and explore possibilities for change and resolution.
Sand & Symbol work, clay and other creative mediums open new ways of looking at issues by encouraging exploration at a deeper level
Creative therapies using sand & symbol, clay, painting and visualisation can be very powerful ways to unlock unknown and underlying issues and long-held emotions, breaking down blocks to new ways of being for people of all ages. Feeling free to engage with and explore the sand unlocks a creative approach in which expression is not hampered by the anxieties and preoccupations of the mind.
Help for parents and families to explore and resolve struggles and concerns around family relationships
Working with parents (and other family members where appropriate), I use a counselling approach to explore and understand the individual family dynamic and concern, and work towards outcomes that fit with the individual family culture and needs. I am a Registered Triple P (Positive Parenting Programme) provider; my training in Triple P is valuable in helping understand individual needs and behaviour, but each parent is the expert about their individual family.
Autism-friendly and sensitive to neurodiversity
I have extensive experience working with families living with autism, helping people on the spectrum make sense of the world they inhabit and also supporting parents to understand their child with autism and how to respond.
Telephone & Skype
If you cannot meet face-to-face I can offer counselling by telephone or Skype video.
