Key Worker Counselling

Whatever your reasons for seeking counselling, I will take the time to listen, understand your needs and what is important to you, before we decide the best way to move forward together.

My approach to counselling is holistic, and responsive to your needs, preferences and belief systems. This reflects my core training in Transactional Analysis (TA), a talking therapy that provides valuable insights into why we think, feel and behave as we do. TA therapy is founded on the idea that we are born with the ability to make life changes, but our past experiences and stories can limit this. In counselling we will gently, unravel these old patterns together and discover new paths and possibilities.

Have you ever wondered why anxiety, trauma and PTSD can affect your ability to think clearly or make decisions?

Research in neurobiology and polyvagal theory suggests this can result from your body experiencing a chronic flight, fight or freeze response. This occurs when your nervous system believes it is in danger and switches resources away from the brain to the body. When this occurs, talking therapy alone can be ineffective, as our thinking has "gone off-line.

To help rebalance your nervous system and enable you re-gain a sense of safety and connection, I may invite you to explore different relaxation and creative techniques. I learnt many of these techniques through my practice as an aromatherapist and undertaking additional training courses.

My work is professionally supervised. I also volunteer as a bereavement counsellor, at St. Wilfrid’s Hospice.
