You might be wondering what ‘integrative counselling’ means. Integrative counselling brings together different elements of counselling theories. It means I can adapt my approach to meet your needs. Key theories include:
- person centred counselling – which helps develop a trusting relationship through empathy, honesty and non-judgemental listening. This creates a space for you to explore who you are and what you really want
- psychodynamic counselling – which looks at your past experiences and how they may have affected your development. It can help discover unhelpful rules and patterns in your life
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) – which explores the negative thoughts we have about ourselves and uses practical ways to help change them. It looks at how our thoughts, feelings and behaviours can affect each other. It often involves doing tasks between sessions and reporting back on them.
I offer weekly sessions of 50 minutes via Zoom or in person from my home in West Norwood. I work on an open-ended basis, meaning sessions can continue for as long as you find them helpful. I have regular reviews so we can discuss how the sessions are going, what you want to get from them, and decide when it’s right to bring them to an end.
I charge £55 for each session.
