I am a versatile therapist and work in an integrative way to ensure I can meet the individual needs of each client. I draw on a variety of approaches in my work. These include ( though not exclusively) ;
Somatic experiencing - works by bringing awareness to the sensations in the body, thus giving access to the nervous system and the bodies natural healing powers to resolve trauma and other stress related disorders.
Internal family systems therapy - which works on supporting the relationship between the "self" and the parts that make up the self- allowing us to work with defence and protective patterns which have built up over time in response to trauma. Compassion focused therapy which aims to promote healing by encouraging individuals to practice compassion towards themselves and others.
Sensorimotor psychotherapy - a body-centered approach that aims to treat the somatic symptoms of unresolved trauma. Sensorimotor psychotherapy combines somatic therapies, attachment theory, cognitive applications, neuroscience, and techniques from the Hakomi method.
The core values of the person centered approach underpin all my work. I believe, whole heartedly that when provided with a safe and facilitative environment individuals are able to move in the direction of change, growth, empowerment, fulfillment and the opportunity to reach their full potential
I am committed to my on-going personal and professional development and am constantly looking to evolve my practice and the effectiveness of my work. I am a registered member of the BACP, ad-here to the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy's Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions and attend regular individual and group supervision sessions.
I have proven experience of working with clients from wide demographic and cultural back grounds. I am creative empathetic and non-judgmental, dedicated to ensuring ethical and reflective practice.
