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 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.
