Founder of Creating Expressions.
I am a qualified Counsellor and registered member of the (BACP) British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and operate under their ethical framework.
I have trained as an Integrative Counsellor which means my training covers several therapeutic approaches, including Psychodynamic approach, Humanistic Person Centred approach and CBT. An Integrative approach to Counselling enables us to explore the causes of the issues you are facing and helps us to focus on moving forwards with renewed meaning and purpose.
As a Counsellor I am able to achieve a broader understanding of my client and adjust my methods to suit the individual.
I offer short- and long-term counselling, as well as open ended counselling. This will be discussed as to what suites your needs.
Secretary for Creating Expressions.
