    How I can help you

    Hi,

    My name is Andrea and I am a fully qualified, accredited and registered Counsellor/Psychotherapist with BACP.   To find out more about what this means and to explore types of therapy BACP's Its good to talk offers further information http://www.itsgoodtotalk.org.uk/what-is-therapy.  

    As an integrative therapist, I will often explore personal history/future choices, past attachments/current relationship as well as goal focused strategies which enhance emotional and psychological wellbeing.    I am also fully trained and qualified to used the arts in therapy which provide a powerful tool for change.   This type of therapy offers a place to rehearse the possible/test new waters, mourn a loss, make sense of a dilemma or relationship problem or simply to gain a new perspective to move from a place of stuckness to one of choice.

    What to expect

    A compassionate, honest, culturally sensitive and down-to-earth approach.   Emotional and psychological support from an experienced, qualified and registered psychotherapist.   This can be through a single support session, an instant messaging slot or a 50-minute video-therapy session depending on your preference and needs.  

    I work to BACP guidelines and UK legislation however do not offer a crisis service and recommend that you contact your GP, local A&E or Samaritans in these circumstances.

    About me

    After completing a degree in Psychology I qualified in Integrative Psychotherapy in 2008.  I chose this approach to psychological therapy as it is creative, flexible, goal focused, explorative and takes into account how you feel, think, behave as well as noticing the impact challenges may have on our bodies.   

    Historically, I have worked within the fields of Wellbeing, Education and Health and have experience of supporting people through recovery/return to work.   In the last 4 years I have been working in the NHS offering psychological therapy face-to-face and online.  I have experience of working with depression, anxiety, panic, loss, life adjustment, recovery/resilience as well as relationship issues.   

    Feel free to contact me for a trial session to explore if my way of working suits your needs and fits and timeframe.

    Andrea
