Integrative Counsellor based in a Private Practice in Bromley

My Experience

I am Integrative Counsellor working in my busy Private Practices in Bromley. I have worked with a wide range of people dealing with various problems, challenges and difficulties.

I am highly experienced in the drug and alcohol field and have worked as a therapist in the Priory Group, facilitating groups with clients who were being treated for different types of addiction. Prior to this I worked with a drug and alcohol agency for five years supporting clients with severe drug and alcohol addiction working with them in a range of settings e.g. The Criminal Justice System and Mental Health agencies.

In addition to the above I also worked for a generic counselling organisation that specialised in anxiety and depression.

My counselling approach:
My approach varies according to your individual needs thus enabling us to deal with a range of problems. Working together, we seek to tackle challenges or issues that you maybe facing. As individuals we act, think and feel in different ways. As an Integrative Counsellor I can work with you to produce a unique therapy adapted to suit your needs. This can be short or long term counselling.

A brief description of different approaches:

  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) Works by examining the ways that thought, feeling and behaviour can effect you and how these can influence our actions. We work together in changing thinking and or behaviour patterns.
  • Person Centred Counselling works by building a therapeutic relationship whereby you are able to gain a sense of personal power, identifying how you want to live and then supporting you to achieve your goals.
  • Psychodynamic Counselling works by helping individuals unravel their past through their perceptions of their experience and how they influence you in the present.
  • Sensorimotor Psychotherapy works by exploring how a client organises their experiences, cognitive (thinking), emotional (feeling), movement, 5 sense perception (smell, sight, sound, touch and taste) and somatic responses (heart rate, breathing, temperature) This is very useful when working with traumatic experiences.
