  • My Personal Approach

    I use an Integrative Humanistic Approach by making use of Person-Centred, Transactional Analysis and Gestalt Models. Having worked with:

  • NHS Primary Care Trust
  • Relate
  • Rape & Sexual Abuse Crisis
  • Cruse Bereavement Care
  • Drug & Alcohol Service
  • Surrey Trauma Support

    I have also integrated a Psychodynamic, Systemic, Task Orientated and Cognitive Behavioural flavour to my work, which I find very useful.

    My Approach provides me with the tools to offer my client(s) various ways of exploring their feelings and emotions. By looking at how they communicate with me, I can vary techniques according to the needs of my individual client(s), in order to avoid confusion/misunderstanding.

    I have made a serious commitment to working with issues of difference and equality. Therefore, I regularly attend workshops focussing on these issues, along with other regular training courses to inform my practice and enable me to provide a safe and highly professional service.

    As do all counsellors, I have ongoing formal consultative support (Supervision) for my work in accordance with professional requirements. This is so that I can regularly monitor and review my work to maintain good practice. During these meetings I will only be discussing what my thoughts were in our sessions, therefore maintaining client confidentiality.
