First Steps Counselling
Integrative Therapy To Suit Your Needs
When the other person is hurting, confused, troubled, anxious, alienated, terrified; or when he or she is doubtful of self-worth, uncertain as to identity, then understanding is called for. The gentle and sensitive companionship of an empathic stance… provides illumination and healing. In such situations deep understanding is, I believe, the most precious gift one can give to another.
- Carl Rogers
Respect and valuing peoples feelings is central to my beliefs as a counsellor and in everyday life. People come to counselling for all different reasons. I have had experience of working with clients on a wide range of issues. I know the first step you make towards Counselling may be daunting but I can assure you that you will be supported step by step. I can offer a warm understanding and respectful space for you to share whatever issues are current for you one step at a time.
I began my counsellor training just over 10 years ago. I currently hold three qualifications in counselling at Certificate level and have gained a level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling. I am also trained in Cognitive Behaviour therapy this enables me to offer an inclusive counselling service combining therapies as appropriate. I am also qualified in relationship counselling.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their code of Ethics.
I am also a member of the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies. (BABCP)
