The model of therapy

I use As a fully qualified Integrative counsellor, l collaboratively select which model of therapy is appropriate for each individual client using a wide range of theories, including CBT, EMDR, psychodynamic, person-centred, existential and humanistic. This approach is based on the fact we are all unique, and therefore no one model fits all. By having experience and practice in a range of approaches I can tailor the therapy to each client’s specific needs. This process is based on establishing a genuine relationship between counsellor and client which stands at the ‘core’ of any therapeutic union. I will endeavour to facilitate the client to achieve better overall well-being, make the best choices for themselves and establish what steps to take to move forward at their own pace. All within a confidential and non-judgemental space where you the client can express emotions and personal issues freely.

 

My experience in counselling

I have been working within the mental health industry since 2003 and am affiliated with ‘The Integrated Practice’ – 127 Harley Street.

I am a psychological wellbeing training consultant for various organisations, including Greenwich Mind.

As an accredited member of the BACP, I was honoured to be asked to be an author and speaker at the BACP Research Conference.

The above experience has allowed me to grow my knowledge and experience and give me the passion to want to help others. This led me to be the Founder of the Wellness Rooms, where with additional counsellors and therapists we can offer clients a holistic approach to well-being.

I was drawn to becoming a Counsellor

My own experience of encountering panic attacks was my first involvement in counselling.

I prised my career as a fashion stylist, I was in a steady relationship and out of nowhere my life felt turned upside down. All this fear and panic entered my life literally overnight. Unfortunately attending therapy can still carry stigma and lack of understanding, but even more so 20 years ago. I felt uneasy and hesitant as to how ‘talking’ to a stranger would help. I was reassured when I met Elizabeth, as she was nothing like the visualised stereotype I had in my head of a ‘shrink.’ I felt comfortable and not as though I was being judged. This facilitated me to explore my thoughts and feelings amenably. This in counselling terminology is called ‘the therapeutic alliance’, essential to any counselling relationship. I found the process of self-exploration positive and I was inspired to learn more. I was encouraged to attend an introduction to counselling course, as the main body of the work would facilitate additional self-awareness. At this point, I had no intention of training to become a counsellor. However, the more I learnt about myself the more my mental health improved and I became fascinated by the different models and theories of counselling. So, my journey evolved, and I have never looked back.
