Humanistic Therapeutic Truama Counsellor at Delce Counselling Services Chatham.
(Registered Member of the British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists)
My counselling approach rests on the foundations of my belief that we all matter, that our mental health matters and that we are equal.
Underpinning my work are both my interests and ongoing research into the complexities of our mental health and how as humans we protect ourselves psychologically, emotionally and physically when we experience threat.
I qualified in Humanistic Therapeutic counselling and Trauma Therapy and I work from my core Person Centred beliefs and trust in you having within you what it is you need to be all of who you truly are. I aim therefore to offer to you a space whereby you will feel enabled to choose what it is you want to explore.
I aim to work with what you chose to bring as you journey to finding your path in your life and your path closer to yourself.
I believe that we are all very different and that you are the only person who truly knows how you feel, what it is you are thinking and what it is you want.
I believe that when we feel truly heard and understood and accepted as we are we are enabled to be more understanding and accepting of ourselves.
I believe that you have within you what it is you need to grow and to be in your life all that you want to be.
It is my beliefs that underpin my approach and aims to offer to you a space free from judgement so that you may explore in confidence any difficulties you may be experiencing in your life, so that you may grow to feel safer in your relationships with others and within yourself.
To keep our work together safe I undertake regular clinical supervision.
Seeking counselling support can feel daunting.
If you have not experienced counselling therapy before you may not know what to expect or what will be expected.
Exploring your life experiences, your relationships, your feelings and thoughts in counselling may at first feel difficult and may raise some painful feelings and thoughts, before you start to feel the benefits.
If you would like to contact me to see if counselling therapy is for you and to decide if you feel comfortable talking with me, please email or phone.
