I have a natural ability to help people with the difficulties and challenges they face and it is this that inspired me to take a turn in my career and become a counsellor. Having had experience of personal counselling I have also acknowledged the positive benefits and clarity that counselling can provide.
I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and offer an integrative approach to counselling. This means that I adopt a range of approaches in order to suit an individual client and their needs, in particular I tend to use a ‘person-centred’ approach. I believe that every person is unique and will react differently with life’s challenges, therefore an approach that suits one client may not necessary suit another, and this is where an integrative approach can be ideal.
- Postgraduate diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP accredited course).
