Learn to love your demons!
I offer an alternative to CBT that focuses not on controlling our thoughts but accepting them and learning to respond in a more positive and flexible way. I combine a deep therapeutic listening with a range of exercises and techniques to help you build a bespoke tool kit that you can take into the world and start using straight away.
I offer both counselling on an ongoing basis and also a ‘super charged’ 4 session package, that uses the methods described above to help you respond more effectively to whatever’s happening in your life.
Sessions cost £40 per hour or £150 for the 4 session package. Great concessionary rates are available too – I believe counselling should be accessible to all. Fortnightly sessions are also an option for those who can’t commit to a weekly slot.
Training, qualifications and experience:
I trained as an Integrative therapist at the Iron Mill institute in Exeter, which combines therapeutic models such as Person-centred, Gestalt and Existential frameworks to enable the counsellor to work creatively and flexibly in sessions. I have since developed an interest in therapies such as Focusing, Mindfulness and Acceptance Commitment Therapy and am undertaking further training in these modalities.
