My approach to Counselling Therapy is integrative using a variety of therapies to suit your needs including:

  • Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT),
  • Narrative Therapy,
  • Person-Centred Therapy,
  • Strengths Based Therapy,
  • Interactive Drawing Therapy (IDT),
  • Art Therapy,
  • Solution Focused Therapy
  • Attachment Theory,
  • Transactional Analysis

I also enjoy working with you using Creative Therapies.

I may refer you, with your consent, to additional or alternative services, to meet your needs if they are outside my scope of practice.

A therapeutic relationship is collaborative, non-judgemental, and built on confidentiality, respect and trust, which can make all the difference between a positive or negative counselling experience.
