The therapy I offer is integrative. My approach has been shaped by several theoretical models of counselling.

Psychodynamic Counselling

Here the idea is that past experiences influence experiences, thougths and feelings in the present. The relationships we develop are often influenced by important relationships from the past, usually in our family of origin.
The relationship that develops between the counsellor and the client can provide important insight.


Client Centred Counselling

The "core conditions" of empathy, unconditional positive regard and congruence are used to develop a trusting, healing therapeutic relationship where the client feels safe enough to explore posibilities of change.


Systemic Counselling

Systemic counselling has developed from family therapy. The belief here is that we are "socially constructed". This theory looks at interrelationships between people and offers clients the opportunity to challenge and change patterns of behaviour that are no longer useful.

Telephone counselling is an ideal alternative solution to many of the obstacles that some individuals face when attempting to seek face to face counselling, and ultimately, it is a method which can be used to reach people who wouldn't get help any other way.

Telephone counselling services are available subject to suitability.
