"Where can I start, I feel I have been on a life changing journey and you have been a big part of it, so I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. You will never understand fully as I can't write in words how much I love life today . . ."

I have a BA/Hons degree in Integrative Counselling. I also have a Certificate in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) from the Greenwich Centre for Stress Management and I have undergone training in Eating Disorders, Self Harm and Attachment issues.

What is Integrative Counselling? 

Integrative counselling means drawing on and blending specific types of therapies. This approach is not linked to one particular type of therapy, as those practicing integrative counselling do not believe that only one approach works for each client in all situations.

As an Integrative counsellor I can draw on and blend the different types of behavioural therapies (focusing on peoples thoughts and their behavior), psychoanalytical and psychodynamic therapies (which focus on the unconscious relationship patterns that evolved from childhood) and humanistic therapies (which focus on self-development in the 'here and now’).

What is Psychotherapeutic Counselling?

Psychotherapeutic Counselling places an emphasis on the whole person and its focus is on developing an in-depth therapeutic relationship with clients.  It is different from traditional counselling because it views the client as a whole person in the context of their life situation and developmental stage.  It is designed to encourage insight into problems thereby allowing the person to understand their patterns and where they wish, make changes and grow.
