Our main aim as Counsellor's is to make you feel safe, comfortable and secure first and foremost and secondly to help you identify the issues you are facing and begin talking about and working through these. Here, we do this by using something called CBT (cognitive behaviour) therapy, which means identifying thoughts and behaviours which may be causing you difficulties and then equipping you with the necessary skills, tools and techniques both in the therapy and in your own life, which will enable you to better navigate life and deal with current issues and issues that arise.
Our first session is always an assessment session to ensure that you are happy to work with us and this session allows us to discuss any issues and develop a plan in order to move forward.
I am trained in hundreds of theories and approaches and continuously complete further training but I marry everything together in order to work on whatever you bring into the therapy room..
I have recently completed my EMDR certification and now incorporate this into my work, specifically treating trauma within the therapy setting.
