HOW I WORK
I work as an INTEGRATIVE COUNSELLOR PSYCHOTHERAPIST within the ethical framework of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy BACP. as a registered and accredited member. I am also a registered member of BAPAM.
I draw from my knowledge of Person-centred, Psychodynamic, CBT and Existential approaches combining any or all of these depending on my individual clients' needs during their sessions with me. I am a compassionate therapist.
As well as the above I studied at The Guildhall School of Music and Drama followed by a successful professional career as an Opera Singer. Coupled with Counselling Qualifications, I also offer voice and singing therapy and coaching to include song interpretation and drama.
PERSON-CENTRED THERAPY encourages the client to tap into their own vast resources of self-undestanding to alter attitudes and behaviour and recognise their view of themselves and how that affects their life.
"When I accept myself just as I am, then I can change"
PSYCHODYNAMIC THERAPY focuses on helping the client understand how present behaviour or symptoms are influenced by the experiences of the past and the memories of which may be accessed deep in the subconscious.
"The conscious mind may be compared to a fountain playing in the sun and falling back into the great subterranean pool of subconscious from which it rises"
EXISTENTIAL THERAPY is a more philosophical method of therapy. It puts emphasis on the human conditionas a whole using a positive approach and maintaining a genuine understanding of the human being, spirit and mind.
"There is nothing in the world...that would so effectively help one to survive even the worst conditions, as the knowledge that there is meaning in ones life"
CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) focuses on the "here and now" assisting the client by encouraging strategies to help address their concerns, challenging negative patterns and beliefs and promoting more positive coping skills
