Counselling provides a safe, confidential and supportive environment where new ways of coping successfully with the challenges of life may be explored. The process can help you come to terms with the past and explore more helpful ways of reacting to difficult issues and situations.
I integrate various therapies, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprogramming (EMDR), person-centred and psychodynamic therapy. I also use Guided Affective Imagery (Psychodrama) which can be particularly effective with children. Hypnotherapy may be used when considered appropriate, with the client’s permission. Therapy may be short term and solution focused or longer term according to your needs and wishes.
