Counselling & Psychotherapy in Twickenham, Whitton TW2

ABOUT ME

MY APPROACH, TRAINING & EXPERIENCE

My approach

I am a BACP Accredited Integrative trained counsellor based in Twickenham, West London.

As an integrative counsellor I am influenced by a variety of approaches which inform my work.  This broadly means that I recognise that all clients have different life experiences and are unique and that one approach does not fit all.  I therefore draw on different theoretical approaches that influence the way in which I work with you, dependent on your needs.  In particular, I recognise that it can be helpful to look at past experiences in order to understand current difficulties in relationships today.

Most importantly I recognise that it is the relationship between the client and counsellor that is of the utmost importance in counselling and psychotherapy.
