About Andrea

 

I am an experienced psychotherapist and expert in CBT, mindfulness and emotional intelligence.

I have developed my own unique style of integrative therapy to enable you understand yourself better and move forward. I will work with you to breakthrough barriers to become empowered and strong.

My holistic approach takes into consideration the “whole” of a person’s life – mind, body and soul. This might also include lifestyle, nutrition and belief systems.

I have worked with hundreds of clients over the past 18 years to help them find clarity, balance, acceptance, healing, meaning, forgiveness, recognition, freedom from addictions, inner peace and new perceptions of themselves and their place in the world, I now look forward to meeting you or a member of your family.

My Experience

My career in counselling began in 2000 working firstly for a bereavement service followed by 10 years at a drug and alcohol service as Senior Addiction Counsellor. I have a wealth of experience and have worked with many organisations (including the NHS).   I have been working in private practice since 2004 and take referrals from the following:

  • Self-referrals
  • Various UK and international health insurance providers such as BUPA, PRU Health, PPP/AXA, WPA
  • EAPS (Employment Assistance Programmes)
  • Drug and Alcohol services and rehabs
  • Insurance companies for PTSD clients as a result of road traffic accidents
  • I supervise managers and counsellors working within CRI, Probation Service, NTA/FDAP drug treatment agencies and Health Service Settings.
  • I offer supervision support to counsellors and student counsellors

Creator of The Mood Cards series and cards and books

In 2015, I created The Moods Cards for self-development, emotional intelligence and healing.  The 42 different cards are based on the premise that psychology does not have to be complicated. THE MOOD CARDS are simple to use and offer a fun and accessible way to help you identify and explore your moods and emotions. They are suitable for professionals, clients and self-help individuals to help people understand the world through their own moods and feelings. The cards are now being sold world-wide, in 8 countries and 3 different languages.

Workshops

I have in past run workshops and retreats on emotional intelligence and self-development across the UK in both private and corporate settings.   I am not running any workshops or retreats at present but I do have a group on facebook called UK Retreats for Mind Body and Soul which please join in this is something you are interested in.  UK Retreats for Mind Body and Soul
