Key Worker CounsellingMates in Mind

I work primarily from a humanistic Integrative approach as this enable me to tailor sessions to suit to the needs of each client and helps to build the therapeutic relationship. I have gained experience of working with a range of emotional, anxiety and trauma issues (including those listed in the ‘what I can help with section’) and I usually recommend clients book an initial telephone discussion to discuss their requirements briefly, before we book a first session.
I sometimes introduce creative techniques alongside talking therapies such as visualisations, art, clay-work, Sandtray and breathing techniques. All such interventions are only introduced with a clients full agreement and where appropriate to the therapeutic process.
I work with adults of all ages on either short or long-term, dependent on the therapeutic requirement, on an individual basis.
Whilst I have a well ventilated office available for face-to-face work, sessions are also available via video call/telephone in the current circumstances.
