I have been trained to an Advanced Certificate Level in Non Violent Resistance, which is a specific family therapy approach
I have a 12-year background in adolescent care and childhood trauma, as well as substance misuse; I have a knowledge of the 12-step programme and addictions and co-dependency.
I am a counsellor in advanced training in Transactional Analysis (TA). The heart of TA is relationship - both internally, with oneself - and externally, relating healthily with others.
TA is particularly rich in tools and models that support a client to own and develop their own knowledge and understanding of themselves, so they may thrive autonomously.
One of the fundamental philosophies of TA is: everyone has the capacity to think for themselves and influence their life by the decisions they make. Any decision can be changed.
