Counselling

Upon escaping from an abusive environment people often feel confused, struggle with low self-esteem, identity issues and feel like the departure has left them with a huge void in their life.  My aim as a counsellor is to help clients make sense of their experience, work through trauma caused by it, and rebuild their lives and identity. 

​I am an integrative therapist and I often use psycho-educational tools in therapy as a way of helping people understand what has happened to them.  This may involve examining and discussing handouts on topics such as gas lighting, brainwashing/mind control and persuasion techniques to expose the processes of manipulation in a relationship or abusive group.  Alongside this process it is common for other challenging live experiences to be exposed and past clients have also used their therapy to explore issues such as loss/grief or their childhood.

​All sessions are client led and I work to the ethical framework of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, which states that the ethical responsibilities of a counsellor are as follows:​

Being trustworthy: honouring the trust placed in the practitioner

Autonomy: respect for the client’s right to be self-governing

Beneficence: a commitment to promoting the client’s wellbeing

Non-maleficence: a commitment to avoiding harm to the client

Justice: the fair and impartial treatment of all clients and the provision of adequate services

Self-respect: fostering the practitioner’s self-knowledge, integrity and care for self

(21/05/2024 NOTE:  I am currently in the process of changing my professional membership from BACP to NCPS so this section will be be updated shortly)

I am currently offering online video counselling which I ask for £60 per 50 minute session (Price may differ if paid for by third party). I am able to counsel International clients too.
