My Diploma in Integrative and Humanistic Counselling means I use a variety of methods to help my clients, thereby respecting your individuality. We may look at how your past affects your present, we may work creatively, we may look at how you relate to others or yourself. Whatever approach we take I will be guided by you. Your well being is at the heart of how I approach my work.
My work experience includes :
Bristol Mind - where I helped people who had suffered various forms of trauma, loss, bereavement and relational difficulties.
The Southmead Project - working with individuals who came from abusive backgrounds and had current addiction issues.
Weston College - working with individuals from 16+ who had a broad range of issues, including anxiety, depression and anger issues.
I was also a Samaritan for a number of years.
My formal training is accredited by UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapists) and BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) of which I am a member and adhere to their code of ethics (2018). I also attend regular supervision.
