I am a Humanistic Integrative practitioner with Person Centred Approach as my foundation. What this means is that throughout all of the work that we do together - you are always the expert in the room and the centre of all of our work.

 

I have been trained in Person Centered, Transactional Analysis, Mindfulness, CBT, and Solutions Focused therapies. I understand that there is no one size of therapy to suit all clients. My therapeutic 'tool box' contains many tools to aid us as we construct a more effective way of being for you.

 

The Humanistic Approach encourages self-awareness and self-realisation. As I have said above, I believe that you are the expert on your thoughts, feelings, and behaviour. Together we would be embarking on a journey to learn to understand how negative responses to life experiences can lead to psychological and physical discomfort.
 

I have counselled people with a wide range of issues including-

Chronic illness

Sexual violence

Neurodivergence

Anxiety

Depression

Domestic violence

Suicidal ideation

Animal bereavement

Grief

Childhood abuse

Relationship issues

Bullying

Disturbed sleep

"Stephanie was warm and authentic from the outset.

I found her very easy to talk to. I cried lots during counselling but there was so much laughter too.

I really loved our sessions.

She helped me turn my life around."
