Shirley is an Integrative Psychotherapist, which means that rather than being guided by only one approach, she builds her work around the needs of each of her clients.
She draws particularly on humanistic approaches which appreciate the creativity which can lie behind many of our difficulties. Her influences include coherence therapy, gestalt, sensorimotor therapy, mindfulness and mindfulness based cognitive therapy (MBCT) as well as the neuroscience of human motivation, stress management and change.
Shirley works with individuals both short and long term, offering a safe, warm and confidential environment in which to explore their experience with interest and compassion, believing that each of us already has the answers. It’s just that sometimes we need a helping hand to unearth them and appreciate our own wisdom and creativity.
She has particular experience and interest in:
Trauma and post-traumatic stress
Panic attacks and phobias
Some of Shirley’s previous work has been with organisations supporting victims of serious crime, survivors of domestic abuse, people who are suicidal and those experiencing complex mental health issues. She also has many years’ experience working in professional services, including coaching and mentoring individuals and teams and delivering mindfulness training.
Qualifications: Shirley has an MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy from the Metanoia Institute and Middlesex University and is registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), whose code of ethics she abides by.
