I believe the most important part of counselling, in order for it to be successful, is the therapeutic relationship itself.
I am an integrative counsellor and work with a wide variety of issues. I use a collaborative approach and work in a way that suits each individual client. I have worked with many different issues including, shame, guilt, anxiety, depression, sexual violence, trauma, sexual orientation, gender issues, anger, dissociation, and existential struggles. I have been counselling for just over six years and qualified in 2012. I was a support worker for six years during which time I qualified as a counsellor.
I am a registered member of the BACP and working towards accreditation. I have completed a one year foundation course in gestalt therapy and am hoping to one day complete the three year accredited gestalt psychotherapy training. In the meantime I continue to develop professionally and personally by completing various training courses.
I also work at Manchester Rape Crisis (MRC) and have experience of working with deep trauma. I have been there for five years and continue to develop in my knowledge of trauma and the impact of sexual violence. I have several roles at MRC, including: counsellor, helpline co-ordinator and trainer of the new helpline volunteers.Tags: Clinical Supervision, Integrative Therapy Posted by
