I trained as an integrative counsellor at Southampton University and also trained in CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) at Exeter University. I have a Masters Diploma in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and a certificate in Coaching. These qualifications give me a wide range of techniques to draw on. For the past five years I have been employed by IAPT (Increased Access to Psychological Therapies) part of Avon and Wilts NHS Trust in GP surgeries throughout Wiltshire.
During the first session of counselling (first assessment free) I aim to develop a constructive therapeutic relationship with you where we adopt approaches from the range of techniques I work with. My aim is to help you find your individual voice and belief in yourself. I have extensive experience of working both as a body therapist and counsellor and am committed to a holistic approach, this could include modifying diet, lifestyle and practising mindfulness as well as more conventional psychological therapy.
