Integrative counselling

Hello and welcome

Counselling for individuals and couples - online, or in person. UK and worldwide.

At times life can be filled with challenges, disappointments and sadness. Events or experiences may happen in our daily lives that are unexpected or we find very painful and difficult to recover from. ​Whilst it can be helpful to turn to friends or family, there are times when our experiences are more difficult to understand and resolve. We can lose touch with who we are now and who we want to be and are caught up in our past experiences or worries about the future. This can lead to us feeling overwhelmed, anxious, stressed and disconnected from ourselves and each other. ​Everyone comes to counselling for his or her own reasons: we all have our own story and our own unique life experiences. I offer a confidential and non-judgemental space to support you when life is at its most difficult and to help you achieve lasting, positive change in your life. I encourage you to browse this site and read more about me and how I work. Its really important to find the right therapist for you to work with, who you feel comfortable with and can help you to move forward. 

About me

I am an Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor based in Spalding, Lincolnshire. I am accredited with UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy) and a registered member with BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy).

 Life is complex, and at times, we can all struggle to cope with whatever that brings. I provide a warm, safe and judgement free space to help you to explore the issues that bring you to counselling with sensitivity and curiosity, helping you to understand your past, where you are now and your hopes for the future.
 
Counselling can help you understand your emotions, relationships, patterns of thinking or behaving and the barriers in your life - those you are conscious of and others you are not. This awareness can help you find and address the root causes of your issues, heal from the past and learn effective coping strategies in order to develop a more enriching and fulfilling life.
As an integrative therapist, it is my philosophy that every person is unique and I work holistically with each of my clients. ​Whatever brings you here, I offer a confidential space to support you to explore your past and your present, and also look at future aspirations and possibilities.
In my experience, change really is possible.

 

How I can help

Integrative counselling combines a range of psychotherapeutic models which includes CBT, psychodynamic and humanistic theories. I offer an approach that is flexible to fit the unique needs of each individual, which can evolve over time to meet a variety of needs and concerns. 

Contact

If you would like to find out more about how I can help or book an initial appointment, please contact me.
I work with individuals, young people and couples, either in-person or online.

Beginning counselling can be empowering - it is also a commitment. Whether you’re hoping to work through your difficulties or for personal growth and change - its worth having a conversation about. I offer an initial telephone consultation - calls are free and take about 15 minutes. I will ask a little about what you are looking for from counselling and you can ask me any questions you may have. We can then book a session if you wish.

Your first session is an opportunity for us to get to know each other and for you to get a sense of how it feels to work with me. When we first meet, we will look together at what is happening for you, how it is affecting different areas of your life, and what you might like to be different. By the end of the session you will have a clearer understanding if beginning therapy is right for you and be able to decide if I am the right therapist for you to work with.

You can call, text, email me or use the message app on this website.
