Counselling and Therapy Newtownabbey.
Professional therapy for personal healing, growth & discovery.
“Know all the theories, master all the techniques, but as you touch a human
soul be just another human soul.”
― C.G. Jung
A unique humanist approach that integrates one to one counselling with holistic therapies for a life changing journey of personal healing. As a fully qualified and experienced Counsellor/therapist, I have a genuine passion for promoting healing, personal growth, self-discovery and recovery from within. At the heart of my work is the relationship I build with my clients - a relationship of mutual trust and one based on a strong sense of compassion, warmth and empathy towards each individual client, whatever their background, issues or experience.
I aim to provide a trauma informed therapeutic practice, an approach, which seeks to understand and respond to the impact of trauma on people’s lives. This approach emphasises physical, psychological, and emotional safety for everyone and aims to empower individuals to re-establish control of their lives, reestablishing safety connection. I continue to expand my knowledge in the study of trauma, keeping up to date with trauma recovery research and various healing modalities.
I offer clients a unique humanistic approach to counselling that combines my own proven signature framework with more recognised counselling theories including Person Centred Counselling, Cognitive Behaviours Therapy, Psychodynamic Theory & Solution Focused Brief Therapy. Most importantly, I offer clients a bespoke approach tailored totally around their individual therapeutic needs.
I am professionally registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and hold qualifications in further holistic and psychological therapies. I am also a Reiki Master/Practitioner Teacher, attuned to Usui Reiki Master Level & Seichim. Highly experienced, fully insured & professionally registered with UK Reiki Federation. https://www.reikifed.co.uk/
I provide my clients with a professional, yet warm and welcoming environment in which to explore the problems they are facing. Whether it be counselling or an alternative therapy, each session is provided in a safe, comfortable and confidential environment. I will strive to help you in any way I can, which usually comes in the form of counselling, talking therapy or reiki, however, this can be adjusted should your needs require so. Having a heartfelt passion for what I do, I feel very blessed to do my work and to have met so many wonderful people along the way.
I personally, as well as professionally have discovered the benefits of each of the therapies I offer, each one having deeply enhanced and improved positive changes within my own life and the lives of many clients.
Thank you for taking the time to read about me, I look forward to hearing from you.
