Hi my name is Myke and I am an integrative counsellor with my own private practice, I am also a full time Substance and Alcohol Misuse Counsellor. I use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic and Person Centred theories when working with clients.
I also have knowledge and further training in other theoretical modalities which can be drawn upon and utilised within our counselling work to suit your individual needs.
Transactional Analysis (TA), Gestalt, Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Mindfulness and Logotherapy.
I provide a broad range of services to clients including one to one therapy, couples counselling, same sex relationships, transgender and LGBT issues.
I work with relationship issues such as communication problems, conflict, affairs, divorce and separation, I also work with individuals who are in addiction recovery and also people who may be suffering with anxiety, stress, depression, grief, trauma, break up of a relationship, suicide and self harm.
I offer open ended therapy, which means you can see me short term or long term, based on your individual needs.
In a nutshell, the support of a Counsellor can help find ways to accept and make peace with the things we feel we can’t change, and make positive changes where we can. We can increase awareness that we have choices in life and deal with our troubles when they are taking over and affecting our lives in a negative way and this could be because of unresolved issues concerning grief, an inability to let go of the past, feeling overwhelmed with relationship problems, divorce, drug or alcohol dependency – the list is endless and complex because people themselves are complex and life can throw a multitude of difficulties our way.
I provide counselling services to individuals, schools, workplace and medical practitioners.
