4 Years Experience

Firstly, a warm hello. My name is Vanessa.
I recognise the importance of having the right match in a therapist for you.
Be assured, I will hold the work sacredly. I am able to offer an environment of compassion, warmth and hope conducive to growth, reflection and empowerment, that has your best interests at the heart of it.

With the right support, my belief is everyone has the innate potential to master their struggles. This belief is imperative especially at a time when a person has arrived with lost hope and shattered confidence.

As an integrative psychotherapist I draw upon a plethora of modalities in order to create the precise therapeutic approach for each individual. With the view of the human as an holistic, interconnected being, giving light to all parts and having the patience and perseverance to go on the proverbial archaeological dig as part of a collaborative alliance to get to the root of the issues.

In the warm, empathic container I offer is a space for exploration with non judgement, through which you can come to a better understanding of yourself. Therefore empowering you to transform in the direction which you yearn to.

My journey counselling started as a volunteer 20 years ago and I have had 6 months experience in a observational placement within a secure psychiatric hospital in an in patient setting. I am also available to supervise other counsellors and therapists.

With an appreciation of the modern lifestyle, comes the demands and stresses it places on us hence I’m enthused to be able to embrace modern communication methods, as a solution to the time sensitive and over scheduled perplexing world that we are in.

Alongside a career in therapy comes a commitment to continue to develop one’s professional skills. So in addition to my main qualification I have certificates in couples counselling and addiction counselling. I am signed up to a future course to learn a technique for use with trauma.
