How We Will Work Together.

It is my belief that you are your own expert. You know what is best for you. I may have solutions or suggestions to your problems but they may not be your way of doing things.
I am an integrative counsellor that has worked in person-centred organisations but I have a strong affiliation towards Psychodynamic theory. What this looks like for you is if relevant we may incorporate dream work, looking at the past or your own creativity.
I integrate other ways of working such as Existential thinking which means we may consider what endings are for you or acknowledge our lives as a period of time with a beginning and end.
I have worked with many people and their life challenges these include, loss and grief, narcissism, relationship complications and break ups, work load burnout, addiction to a wide range of pleasure giving entities including sex, gambling, drugs and alcohol. I have also worked with people exploring their sexuality, people exploring their identity and the drivers that influence them. I have worked extensively with people with depression, anxiety, PTSD and other mental health conditions.
One of my strongest beliefs is that the relationship between counsellor and client is of paramount importance to successful therapy. The reason someone is coming to counselling is not the most vital part of the process, the ability to build a relationship with your counsellor is. One of the greatest benefits of counselling is discovering you and who you are, and I am honoured to say I have been able to provide this platform time and time again. I have been able to offer therapeutic relationships to people who have got closer to who they are and this offers people the confidence and space to grow.
“When a person realizes he has been deeply heard, his eyes moisten. I think in some real sense he is weeping for joy. It is as though he were saying, "Thank God, somebody heard me. Someone knows what it's like to be me”
― Carl R. Rogers
In our first session we will arrange to have Approximately 6 sessions, which can be extended to more on mutual agreement.
Sessions can be held in Bath, Radstock, Midsomer Norton or Online via Video or telephone call.
Sessions cost £50, discounts can be applied to bulk bookings. I believe counselling should be available to all therefore Concessionary rates are available to those that can not afford the full rate, contact me to find out more.
If a therapeutic relationship can not be formed a referral to a relevant service can be made.
People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, "Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner." I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds. Carl Rogers
