My counselling Qualifications | Acorn Therapy

What is my counselling Training, qualifications & experience?

I completed 3 years of training, my initial therapy training was at the Iron Mill College in Exeter where I gained a certificate in counselling. I subsequently gained a Degree in Integrative therapy from the University of Worcester.
I believe it is essential in this work that I keep my training to a high standard, I am therefore committed to ongoing training and continuing professional development.

What is my Approach?

I work within an integrative framework because I take the view that there is no single approach that can treat each client in all situations. Each person needs to be considered as a whole, and counselling techniques must be tailored to individual needs and personal circumstances. I believe that my clients are unique individuals, they need therapy that is able to embrace their uniqueness rather than expecting them to fit in with one particular way of working.

I apply the following therapies where appropriate:

  • Mindfulness
  • Person Centred approach
  • Existential
  • Cognitive and Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • Psychodynamics
  • Creative therapy and more
