Counsellor in Norwich
My training to become a Counsellor and Psychotherapist was over 5 years part-time and I hold a Masters degree in Integrative Psychotherapy; a diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy and a degree in Psychology.
The Integrative approach that I adopt is a developmental , relational approach that uses a blend of Psychoanalytic Self-Psychology, Transactional Analysis, Humanistic Psychology and Object Relations. The unique integration of approaches is aimed to help with working through childhood issues in order to be fully present and available for the richness of current relationships.
As a course requirement and importantly for my own growth and development , I undertook my own weekly psychotherapy with a psychotherapist and this continued for many years after my training had ended. This experience has been such an important and necessary part of my training which not every training requires so do check that the therapist you choose to work with has had their own long term therapy as part of their training.
I am a member of the UKCP ( United Kingdom Council of Psychotherapists) and am guided by their ethical codes of practice along with SPTI you will find my details on their websites; www.psychotherapy.org.uk ; www.spti.net
Additionally, I have many years experience of continued professional development covering trauma and building resilience, using body based tools, issues of race and culture, sexuality, mindfulness to name just a few,
