‘It takes curiosity and a little bit of courage to explore new possibilities’
I’m a UKCP trainee counsellor, working towards an MSc in Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counselling.
There are many different types of counselling and psychotherapy out there, so why choose ‘integrative’ counselling?
Integrative counselling is essentially relational.
What this means is that I’m interested in how you understand and experience the issues that have brought you to counselling – and then – within the professional boundary of our weekly sessions, we’ll begin to explore both that and how it is to talk, to be heard and to begin to make sense of what makes you tick.
This can help you gain insight into why you respond and feel the way you do about different situations – which can lead to growth and change.
Ultimately, integrative counselling is all about meaningful choice, self-knowledge and acceptance.
And whilst I may draw on different psychotherapeutic modalities, plus current neuroscientific research and techniques such as problem-solving and mindfulness, my way of working is tailored to you.
A bit more about me:
I’m in Year 3 of a UKCP accredited 5 year MSc course in psychotherapeutic counselling at the Metanoia Institute.
I’m currently on an NHS placement in Lambeth.
I work with a wide range of issues and with people from different backgrounds and walks of life.
I’ve worked in the commercial and creative sector for over 20 years and continue to do so and I’m committed to diversity and mental health awareness within this profession.
