I am an integrative therapist, and currently a graduate at BTC. I have worked in a mental health setting for the last 6 years, previously having worked within a busy wellbeing service for the charity MIND. I have completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy and am a member of the BACP.
My approach is humanistic: I believe that we all have our own way of looking at the world and how we view ourselves; I offer a safe, warm and supportive space so that together we can explore and make sense of these views, and by doing so, help you understand and accept yourself more fully. We will work collaboratively, which means that the focus and purpose of the therapy will be negotiated and agreed together and the work and the relationship is open for
review; I will draw on a range of tools to find a way of working that suits your changing needs.
I have a particular interest in third wave CBT and mindfulness based approaches having trained as a Mindfulness teacher with the Sussex Mindfulness Centre. By developing awareness of what is arising in each moment, it becomes possible for us to respond in ways that are helpful, rather than react in ways that are not. I believe that by responding compassionately towards ourselves and our experience we can make the right choices towards growth and fulfilling our potential.
