Training: I attend regular training events. Previous training days have included training on self harm, creative therapies, child protection, relationships, domestic abuse, bereavement and self esteem.
Areas of Specialism: Working with children and young people this includes working within schools. In addition to this I have an interest in peoples relationships with food, health issues and an understanding of M.E/CFS/ and Thyroid Issues.
There are many types of counselling modalities. Whilst I trained in, and have experience of person centred/humanistic counselling, I prefer to work holistically to meet the needs of the individual client. I use solution focused, drawing/art work, visualisation, mindfulness, play therapy and other approaches to help support clients. I am open to working with clients in the way that best meets their needs. This is something that we can discuss during the sessions.
