Laura stated I offer clinical supervision, counselling & psychotherapy and am an EMDR Therapist. I work within the Pluralistic model which means I work on the basis that different individuals are helped in different ways, as a Pluralistic supervisor & counsellor I will engage with you in collaborative dialogue and shared decision-making to maximise your involvement within your own therapy. For example, I will engage with your strengths and cultural resources, as well as your own preferences to what helps and doesn’t help you as an individual.
more about me......
Like so many other people I too have had to deal with life’s up’s and down’s to a greater or lesser degree over years, sometimes the situations caused me to revert back to my now old coping strategies, such as General Anxiety Disorder (GAD), an Eating Disorder, Self-Sabotage and closing down by shutting my family and the world out, with support these coping strategies have now been changed.
In 2012 I started my Counselling, Coaching, and Mental Health training and became a qualified counsellor and coach in July 2016, since then I have continued my training to extend my knowledge, skills, and expertise and in 2022 become an EMDR Therapist. I am also a qualified, mental health and leadership and management tutor/trainer and assessor.
I started her career in administration and accounts for several local and national companies, later she decided to move her career into childcare and progressed to become a Pre-school Manager and owner of her own Childcare Business, which led her to become an Early Years Tutor & Assessor.
I work with all client issues; however, I do have several specialisms that interlink; namely, eating disorders, neurodiversity (Autism/ADHD), LGBTQ+, sexual abuse & trauma, and young people.
I am also trained to work with Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) Anxiety, Complex Trauma, Eating Disorders, Introversion, Leadership & Management, Personality Psychology, Rape & Sexual Trauma, Self-harm, Neurodiversity (including Autistic Spectrum) & Young People (11+)
