The therapy that Liberty Counselling Burnley provides holds the importance of the therapeutic relationship at its core.
I am psychotherapist, counsellor, clinical supervisor, counselling teacher and mental heath trainer and a registered member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists and the National Counselling & Psychotherapy Society. Alongside my training and academic study, I bring my own life experiences into my practice, I believe this is to be an important element and contributory factor to the success of our relationship and a necessary requirement to understand, connect and empathise with another human being.
Just as you are unique, so is my modality and approach which is always tailored to your specific needs. I am a humanistic & integrative counsellor, which means that I utilise different approaches in the sessions. I specialises in emotional regulation, chronic illness, self compassion / critique, self worth, self discovery, empowerment, familial narcissism and offer a trauma informed approach, connecting with the complexities of living with the effects of trauma and CPTSD. I am a social advocate and passionate about working with the LGBTQ+ & Neurodivergent communities.
I bring life experience into supervisory practice and through the process of gentle challenge, with compassion and curiosity, offer you a collaborative space for learning, support, reflection and guidance in a relational manner.
I have an insightful approach to therapy which encompasses attunement and safety for exploration with integrity and ethics at the core of my practice.
I am passionate about working within difference and diversity particularly LGBTQ+ and neurodivergence. I am an experienced psychotherapist, counselling teacher and mental health trainer working within the private and voluntary sector.
Together we will create a collaborative, non judgemental environment to enhance your professional and personal development.
