It seems appropriate to share a little about me, especially as you will be entrusting me with personal events in your life.
Having been the other side of the counselling relationship, I have experienced first-hand the benefits of having a counsellor who holds a trusted position in your life. Someone who, offers you empathy, respects your outlook on the world and holds a safe space whilst you uncover and resolve the issues within you that you want to address.
It was that experience that ignited my curiosity to understand how our thinking works. This led me onto my first step to train as an NLP practitioner, transitioning onto hypnotherapy and timeline therapy. I furthered my training to Master level in each of these three areas.
I wanted to be able to utilise my NLP skills within a therapy environment. This is what directed me towards training in counselling and I chose to spend a further four years training in that area. I have been able to hone my skills such that I can support my clients as they identify and explore the issues that are presenting for them. NLP provides me with a series of extra resources that I can offer and invite clients to utilise, helping them address their issues.
This is where I find myself in the current day and I genuinely enjoy being part of the process as my clients navigate their obstacles and move forward, whether that is with counselling alone, or using NLP techniques, hypnotherapy or time-line therapy.
My counselling experience includes:
I can provide support with other issues that you may be struggling with. I have worked with a range of clients in my role as a counsellor. These have included providing confidential counselling for young people, specifically, 11 to 25 year olds and also adults affected by cancer.
