I am an experienced and fully qualified Psychodynamic Counsellor and Psychotherapist, and a Specialist Mental Health Mentor, with several years’ experience of working with young people and adults from various backgrounds and ethnicities.
My approach to therapy can be described as eclectic and integrative as I believe that in order to bring about positive change in an individual's mental well-being it is more effective to use a combined 'approach' rather than a single 'approach' of therapy. The human mind is one of the most complex machines on the planet so when looking at this multi-faceted piece of machinery, one needs to take into consideration ‘the mind as a whole’ and not just one aspect of it. This has led me to explore with keen interest the world of Neuro-Psychotherapy as it looks at the various neuro-biological underpinnings of mental states and behaviour and takes into consideration the dynamic interchange between the cognitive, physical, psychological, sociological and environmental influences on an individual's mental well-being alongside nature itself. The Bamworth Approach therefore, encompasses concepts and tools from the 'Cognitive Behavioural', 'Existential', 'Person-Centered' and 'Psychodynamic' models of therapy along with those of Neuro-Psychotherapy in an effort to provide a well-rounded and robust approach during analysis.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and adhere to their professional code of conduct and ethics for practitioners.
