Theory and Practice

I completed the Foundation Degree in Counselling Studies in 2012 which is based on integrative counselling. This is the idea of combining different theories; talking, play and creative methods, to suit clients’ individual needs.

Central to my counselling practice is the core of Person Centred Theory, most importantly, the development of the relationship between the counsellor and client. Therefore, by creating a calm and safe environment and adapting the activities to your needs, I aim to help you make effective changes for your future.
