Sessions Bespoke to Your Needs

.

As everyone is different, I work in a bespoke ‘relational’ way with clients, using a variety of psychotherapy and counselling styles, approaches and techniques. I also incorporate creativity where applicable.  This includes using images, metaphors, dreams, two chair work, sand tray, drawing, objects and art.  I encourage clients to explore their own creativity as a way of connecting with themselves.

.

Learning + Knowledge = Self-Awareness + Choices

 

The aim is for the client to connect to an emotion or body sensation, that allows them to express in a way which  they find meaningful. I also work with the sub-conscious part of a client’s personality and behaviour, known as the ‘blind spot’. When sensitively explored, this can help clients begin to see themselves from a different perspective or direction; something that they can then connect with, and learn from, towards finding ways to potentially enhance their everyday life.

Dual Diagnosis

Dual Diagnosis is for people who suffer with general mental health issues (anxiety, attachment, loss, depression, loneliness, low self-esteem and/or stress) and who are also struggling with a substance issue or misuse. They may find themselves either self-medicating with prescription drugs, having a small drug habit or drinking more than they would like.

My dual diagnosis therapeutic experience initially came from working in the prison service (HMP) within a Substance Misuse Team (linking in with the Mental Health Team and NHS Healthcare) for over 8 years.
