I am a fully qualified and registered Counsellor with training and experience in various counselling techniques which I draw upon as well as incorporating creativity and other various tools into how I work, very much seeing each client as unique.
I am trained in Integrative Counselling. As the name suggests this is a combined approach that brings together different elements of counselling therapies rather than a single approach being used in all situations. I am also trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and specifically Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy (REBT) which focuses on identifying unhealthy beliefs and changing irrational beliefs into more rational ones. For some clients Logic-Based Therapy (LBT) a form of philosophical counselling, could provide an appropriate and relatable fit, in which I am also qualified .
I am based in Cambourne close to Cambridge in South Cambridgeshire (England) and can work in both English and Spanish. I have experience in working with adults, adolescents and children, those with Asperger syndrome, with traumas, relationship issues, work related problems and more and I work with clients all around the world.
I am also a fully qualified Teacher and enjoyed a full-time career in teaching before training as a Counsellor (although I do continue to teach part time as well as offer counselling within schools). Prior to teaching I worked in the private sector, including as an Executive Assistant to a Director of a Multinational Corporation.
In order for any therapy to work it helps if the client and therapist can work together. I offer an initial consultation free of charge to help understand and explore your needs and to see if there is a good fit. This is the first step to taking your journey forward.
