Integrative counselling means I use different therapeutic models depending on an individuals needs or where they are in their therapeutic journey.
I have over ten years experience and I use this experience within my counselling practice to support individuals to improve their communication skills and develop an understanding of the issues which are impacting on their lives, relationships, employment — mental and physical health. The aim is to support individuals through change and therefore look towards a more positive future.
This is achieved through working collaboratively within a non-judgmental, empathic, good therapeutic relationship, which appreciates and completely respects the individual’s or couple’s right to confidentiality.
Counselling can seem like taking a step in to the dark – but there is light that shines within us all – Like the sun behind clouds waiting to show itself.
Investing your energy and time into your counselling experience can be a positive step; bringing about positive change.
About — EMDR
Eye movement desensitisation reprocessing
The mind can often heal itself naturally, in the same way as the body does. Much of this natural coping mechanism occurs during sleep, particularly during rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. Francine Shapiro developed Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) in 1987, utilising this natural process in order to successfully treat Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Since then, EMDR has been used to effectively treat a wide range of mental health problems— (get self help).
