Counselling

 

My counselling approach is person-centred, strength based and solution focused, working with you as your own expert and agent of change.  Identifying and working with your strengths and values, I use a number of different brief interventions (3 - 6 sessions) such as Focused Acceptance Commitment Therapy (FACT), Trauma Focused ACT (TFACT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness Based Strengths Programmes and Mindfulness Based Stress-Reduction Programmes (MBSP/MBSR), or more long term therapies that work at a slower pace, including Narrative and person-centred.  In session, you will be able to work in whatever way suits you: drawing, writing, talking, metaphor, picture cards, role play, use of sand tray etc. 

I have supported many clients with a range of issues including:

  • Anxiety and Panic disorder

  • Depression

  • Suicidal ideation

  • Trauma

  • Grief and loss

  • Disordered eating

  • Relationships

  • Positive parenting

  • Work related stress & burnout

  • Life transitions & resettlement

  • Identity & LGBTIQA+

  • Substance use

I have found that the therapeutic relationship forms very quickly.  You will feel heard, accepted without judgment and valued, and leave with clarity and skills/resources for you to practice on your journey to living well.
