BACP Definition of Counselling
Counselling and psychotherapy are umbrella terms that cover a range of talking therapies. They are delivered by trained practitioners who work with people over a short or long term to help them bring about effective change or enhance their wellbeing
I specialise in Psychodynamic Therapeutic Counselling, which involves looking into the past to understand the present and make changes, whilst bearing in mind the more modern and up to date techniques that have been proven to help clients. I am aware that the past alone is not always the full picture
Is life getting you down? Have you felt overwhelmed or perhaps unhappy by circumstances or events, either in your personal or work life? Have you suffered loss? .been anxious about relationships? or felt uncertain about who you are or what you want out of life?
Being able to express feelings about your difficulties to a counsellor, like myself, can help you gain emotional support, a better understanding of yourself, and the insight and skills you may need to make decisions that are right for you in life.
