Counselling and Psychotherapeutic Approach
Eve works with both individual clients and couples (heterosexual and same-sex) and aims to create a safe, confidential and non-judgemental relationship. She believes that we all benefit from taking time in the week to explore difficult issues in our lives and the people and events that have impacted on us. As we do so, we can begin to live a more meaningful and free life, discovering our own inner resources and relating to others in a more authentic way, as well as becoming able to ask for and accept the support of others.
Eve has experience of a wide range of issues that can arise for clients in their personal and working lives. These may bring up feelings of anxiety, anger, depression and low self-esteem and lead to relationship and workplace problems as well as dependency and addiction issues. She works in an integrative way, utilising a range of approaches including Humanistic, Psychodynamic, Gestalt and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), as well as creative approaches such as Sand Tray Therapy.
Counselling Experience and Areas of Interest
Eve has worked with clients from many backgrounds and has a special interest in working with couples. With a background and interest in the arts, particularly music, she enjoys helping clients to free up their inner, unconscious and perhaps more creative side, so that they are better able to enjoy life in the moment.
