The way I work
My aim is to work effectively with you regardless of your gender, sexual orientation, ethnic background, beliefs, nationality or culture. I will listen carefully to whatever you have to say in a non-judgemental way and will undertake to provide you with a safe environment in which to explore your issues, emotions and experiences, at a pace which is right for you.
At the end of each session we will review what has been said and any actions which need to be taken.
I will value and trust in your ability to make the most of your potential and will offer my understanding to all your difficulties and offer genuine responses to everything you have to say in strict confidence.
Depending on the number of counselling sessions you have, I will review regularly the progress you have made to ascertain if further sessions are necessary.
I use an integrated approach to my counselling which allows me to utilise various disciplines of counselling. In some cases I also use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP).
