Counselling is classified as a talking therapy; its aim is to bring about effective change or to enhance a sense of wellbeing within its recipient.

Integrative counselling has been born out of the idea that no one single theory can fully explain  the complexity of human nature and existence; instead, the integrative model  encompasses a variety of different theoretical models into one combined theory.

I view my clients holistically, understanding that upbringing and genetic predisposition, social, cultural and historic context into which we are born influence our way of being, learning and maturing.

As an integrative counsellor, I reflect this view by creating a unique therapeutic experience for each client, to fit each client’s equally unique view of life.  Importance is placed on the therapeutic relationship between the therapist and the client, through which you as the client can learn about yourself in the context of human interaction.  For the therapy to work there needs to be a sense of collaboration; I as the therapist do not posses the answers, but by asking the right questions, by listening and being supportive, I aim to help you to find the answers for yourself.

Integrative counselling can help clients to implement positive changes in their life when and where they are possible, but also to accept what cannot be changed and develop emotional resilience to deal and cope better with their issues, difficult situations, other people and life, ultimately leading to a sense of self-empowerment.
