I work with individuals dealing with various problems, challenges and difficulties. I specialise working with people who are dealing with the symptoms of trauma. This can be anger issues, anxiety, depression, difficulty maintaining relationships, intimacy and a sense that life has no real meaning or purpose. I believe it is important that we work together with these issues. I will explain the Neuroscience around how the brain and the body can come into conflict. This will help identify why a person maybe responding or reacting in certain ways, to deal with situations.
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.
