Oak Tree Counselling Welcomes You

Promoting the Seeds of Change and New Beginnings

Hello and thank you for visiting my website. Deciding to start counselling is a very personal journey of self-discovery. You may have started to think about counselling due to recent events that have occurred in your life, or been drawn to accessing emotional and psychological support due to ongoing or past events or traumas. You may be looking into gaining a better understanding of yourself and making sense of your life experience. Whatever the reason, you are here now and at this present stage in your life.

About Me

Experience

I have been a Counsellor/Psychotherapist since 2012. I have previously worked as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist in a Secondary School with children/young people from the age of 11 years upwards. At present, as well as my own private practice, I also work in the voluntary sector with male and female survivors of trauma and sexual abuse.

I am a Humanistic Counsellor/Psychotherapist and work from the Person-Centred Approach. This means that my way of working and my inner belief is that the client is the expert on themselves. Therefore it is my role to support and work with you, so that you are able to gain self-awareness and self-understanding, regarding your life experience. 

Qualifications

I studied at the University of Nottingham and have a First Class BA (Hons) Degree in Humanistic Counselling Practice. I am an Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I have regular Clinical Supervision and work in accordance with the BACP Ethical Framework.

 

Emotional health and Well Being

Promoting the Seeds of Change and New Beginnings

There are many events that can impact our lives emotionally, physically and psychologically, whether through work or our personal lives, upbringing or culture. We can find ourselves unable to cope due to Bereavement, Domestic Violence, Sexual Abuse, Family Breakdown, to name but a few. These can lead to Depression, Anxiety, Post traumatic Stress, Alcohol and Drug Abuse and Self-Esteem issues which can affect our quality of life in so many ways. The list is endless of how life can have a negative impact and how we react or try to cope with this. Counselling can help make sense of our reactions and alleviate the emotional and physical stress associated with our life experience.
The therapeutic relationship between client and counsellor is formed through the creation of a therapeutic environment. As a Counsellor, my role is to create a genuinely empathic and non-judgemental space for you the client. This therapeutic space then helps the client to feel safe to explore their inner most thoughts and feelings without feeling judged or criticised. This all takes place in the counselling room and this is where the journey begins.
