The Counselling Services on offer are  influenced by my journey …

At my roots; I am an experienced and qualified person-centred counsellor.

I started my career volunteering at a local counselling agency and I focused purely on the person-centred approach. At one time I was a part-time, acting clinical manager at the dove service bereavement agency based in Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent. Part of my work involved taking referrals and handling reviews and supervising the placements. The placements are trainee counsellors starting out on their journeys into counselling. 

There are many other approaches to counselling and psychotherapy.

As a consequence, of me working with a wide range of client Issues as a Private Counsellor today. In contrast, to me just focusing on bereavement and loss. I recognised that I needed to become qualified in several different areas. Such as CBTLife Coaching and Mindfulness, MBCT, MBSR and more … 

And so, now, I find it most effective to utilise various different approaches.

Therefore, this enables me to be able to help more people in a much more effective, maybe even, a more client-focused way.

My style of Counselling or Coaching is based on several different approaches, seemlessly integrated together to give you the best results possible.

Find out about more about the various approaches used in Counselling and Life Coaching.

A few examples are; conventional CBT or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. CBT can be combined with Mindfulness Approaches or (MBCT) Mindfullness Based Cognitive Therapy or (MBSR) Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction. Also, and not forgetting, Person Centred Counselling. Solution-Focused Brief Therapy and Personal Life Coaching. All these approaches listed are aimed at helping you to make changes.

Thus, Enabling you to feel more peaceful and in control again.

These approaches are seamlessly linked together. This gives you the very best that you deserve from a Therapist. Having more tools, techniques and strategies at our disposal is obviously beneficial.
