I have worked within social care in various statutory settings for approximately 15 years, and currently work with families to provide therapeutically informed care to children and young people. Over the past 3 years I have volunteered at 2 organisations in the south of the country, providing counselling to both couples and individuals covering a wide range of issues. I am currently working towards an MA in counselling focused on working with individuals, couples, and families.
I aim to provide a safe, non-judgmental space where clients feel able to explore, gain insight, and develop effective coping strategies. I believe that by exploring how we have been shaped by our early experiences, as well as the influences of our relationships, families, and wider society, we can better understand our own feelings and responses. I feel strongly that with support, everyone can begin to feel empowered and make positive change in their lives.
I adopt an integrative approach to counselling, understanding that each client has unique and individual needs that require a personalised approach. I particularly draw on systemic and psychodynamic theory’s to inform my practice, though I utilise a range of different theoretical approaches to best meet clients needs.
Where it all started
I have always worked within the helping professions and have found this work incredibly rewarding. However, it was my own experience of engaging in counselling which I found transformative in my own life, which ultimately motivated me to train as a counsellor.
