As an Integrative counsellor, I am interested in working with a range of modalities to help get clients where they want to be in their lives. Throughout my career, I have learnt that we are forever changing and responding to the world around us. This can be tiring if we are moving through life without the awareness and tools to help ground us. Sometimes we need a space where we can stop and take stock of our lives, and at others we are at crisis point and need help with feeling more in control. We all have different needs, at different times, so I believe it is important to be able to work with my clients to find out what’s right for them. This can be a daunting process, but it is only when we develop greater awareness of the things which are holding us back, can we stop letting them dominate our lives.
We do not exist in isolation, which is why I approach my work in a holistic way; taking into account factors of class, race, gender, and sexuality to help build a picture of clients lived experience.
