I currently work as a counsellor in an addiction service and I’m experienced in working with a wide range of issues, such as drug and alcohol addictions, depression, trauma, bereavement, relationship and attachment issues and many more. I modify and personalise my therapy to suit each individual I work with. My approach is to provide my clients with a safe and non-judgmental place where they can feel listened to and supported to deal with the challenges they are faced with. This therapeutic environment and relationship supports clients to have a better understanding of where they are at in their lives and make the changes they feel are needed to progress and move forward in their life. This year I have started studying EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) therapy, which I will be introducing to my practice later in the year for the treatment of trauma.
