Counselling / Psychotherapy and clinical supervision
There are many different ‘Therapies’. For example, Person Centred Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychoanalysis, Transactional Analysis, Existentialism and many more and each one is valuable in its own way. People have different ways of learning, some like to read, some like to listen to a teacher and some like to learn ‘hands on’, in other words, we are all different. Counselling is learning about ourselves and just as with any other form of learning, we each have our own preferred way. For this reason I believe it is more beneficial to the client if the style of therapy used meets the needs of the client. This way of working is called ‘Integrative’ and is my preferred way of working.
I studied at the University of East London and hold a BSc (Hons) degree in Integrative Counselling. This means I have studied a variety of different therapies and have been trained to analyse clients’ presenting issues from a wide variety of approaches which enables a greater depth of understanding. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and therefore abide by their code of conduct and ethics.
My practice is in Paignton. I have experience of working with alcohol addiction, depression, anxiety, OCD, phobias, bereavement, domestice abuse and violence, trauma, and with general mental health problems.
I have experience of working with individuals, couples, families and children.
My university research was into domestic violence and abuse with particular reference to male victims and their families.
