I offer face to face,  video call and telephone counselling for adults, couples and children.  Short-term and long-term therapy is available depending on your requirements. To book a session please go to the booking page.  

Therapy available:

Person Centred Counselling & CBT informed Therapy 

I offer Person centred Counselling which was founded by Carl Rogers. It is a non-directive talking therapy.  I am not here to provide advice but to offer you a non-judgemental, empathetic environment so that you feel empowered to find your own solutions and make appropriate changes in our lives.  I also offer Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) informed therapy.  CBT Research has shown that individuals who are offered CBT remain well for longer. CBT focuses on challenging unhelpful thoughts and behaviours. 

 

Rewind Therapy 

According to the Intenational Association for Rewind Trauma Therapy "Rewind Therapy has  become internationally recognised as indispensable to treat PTSD, anxiety and phobias and may provide closure".

Rewind Therapy is used to treat post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety and phobias such as flying. This technique is an effective and comfortable treatment of which may reduce and provide closure for trauma, anxiety and phobias. Clients are guided through a deep state of relaxation and imagery. There is no need to talk about the traumatic incident which could re-traumatise clients. The Rewind Therapy technique is also known as the visual/kinaesthetic dissociation technique. This technique may reduce or even stop:

  • intense distress due to reminders of the trauma
  • physical sensations such as pain, shaking, nausea or sweating 
  • flashbacks
  • nightmares
  • intrusive thoughts or images

Child and Adolescent  Counselling

Is your child experiencing emotional or behaviour problems? Counselling may be useful in helping to resolve these difficulties. Counselling can provide children with a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment to talk through any difficulties they may be experiencing. Counselling children may also involve working alongside parent in in order to make positive changes. I will often discuss any new skills in which I use with children with parents so that they too can support their child in using these new skills.
