What I Offer
Person Centered Counsellor
Currently, all my counselling is conducted over the phone or online.
I offer person-centred counselling to adults and can combine this with other therapeutic tools to suit each client’s particular needs. Person-centred counselling means I will listen to you in a non-judgemental way and work at your pace without telling you what to do.
Whilst counselling doesn’t claim to be the answer to all difficulties, many people find if they are listened to in a non-judgemental way and in a safe environment, they are enabled to understand themselves and their needs more deeply and freer to explore different ways of looking at their life.
As a consequence, individuals can discover more effective ways of living and coping, and become more self-directing as they develop insights and solutions to the issues important to them.
I adhere to the I.S.P.C.’s (International Society for Professional Counsellors) code of ethics – an organisational member of B.A.C.P. – which means I am committed to providing a safe, confidential and professional approach.
I’m also qualified to practice “the rewind technique” for clients with P.T.S.D. – post-traumatic stress disorder.
Rewind Therapy is an internationally recognised treatment for PTSD.
It is easily learnt; and usually requires no more than two to three sessions to bring about closure for a single trauma. The Rewind Technique potentially offers a way of permanently stopping the involuntary recall of a traumatic event, bringing it under the control of the individual. Voluntary recall remains however.
Rewind therapy is often known as “closure without disclosure” as no details of the trauma are disclosed to the therapist or counsellor. This potentially reduces the risk of re-traumatization of the individual.
Dr David Muss, founder of IARTT, first introduced his Rewind therapy in 1991 “A new technique for treating Posttraumatic Stress Disorder”. British Journal of Clinical Psychology and I have been trained by him.
I also run a facebook page onto which I put regular posts, encouraging everyone to think about their mental wellbeing. Please see the link below if you think you might be interested
