Based In :
I am an Integrative Therapist offering online counselling through encrypted email and video. My approach values the importance of the relationship between client and therapist as integral to change. I use elements of humanistic, psychodynamic and CBT approaches in my work. I encourage clients to work creatively to find means of expression. This may include art and creative writing if appropriate. I have since managed a range of voluntary mental health services, including those providing emotional support online, youth mentoring projects, school based mental health awareness programmes, community outreach projects and a low cost community counselling service. During my time in the sector I completed my therapy training, which has enabled me to work in a different way with clients, often at greater depth or with a particular focus. I have worked therapeutically with adults, young adults and young people offering both brief and longer term therapy.
