I have extensive counselling/therapy practice experience, having worked as a counsellor/therapist since 1999. I have been accredited with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy since June 2003, and work within their ethical framework for good practice.
My counselling experience is wide-ranging and involves working with client issues which include anxiety, depression and stress related issues, alcohol/substance/food misuse, bereavement/loss and change, relationship problems, sexuality, spiritual and work related issues.
My theoretical model is Psychosynthesis, which also includes Gestalt, other humanistic approaches, psychodynamic theory and other transpersonal and psychospiritual paradigms. I also use person-centred, cognitive behavioural, solution focused and attachment theories within my practice.
My work is primarily influenced by the principles of Psychosynthesis (often referred to as “a psychology with a soul”), which views the person as being on a journey of personal and spiritual development, encountering obstacles along the way. This approach sees the person as more than the issues they present and places emphasis on the fact that each one of us has the wisdom within ourselves to find the answers to our questions.
As well as previously having a successful private practice in Bristol since 2000, and now recently at The Beacon Clinic Great Malvern since 2009, I also work as an associate counsellor for one of the largest Employee Assistance Programme Providers in the U.K. since 2003
