Titi Hill, Bsc Integrative Counselling

BACP Registered Member

 

Counsellor & Psychotherapist

Background

Titi Hill is a counsellor and psychotherapist registered with the British Association of Counseling and Psychotherapy (MBACP). She has a Bachelor’s degree in Integrative Counseling from the University of Surrey. She has been trained in the area of mental health with the NHS in the UK and possesses over 12 years’ experience working in primary and secondary schools, youth services and adult based settings. She is trained to teach the Paws B mindfulness curriculum in schools and corporate organizations.

 

Titi trained as a therapist because she believes that people need a nurturing and safe place to experience empathy and acceptance when dealing with adversity. She can help you reflect on how to meet the core needs that nourish your wellbeing. By strengthening your inner coach and enhancing your self-esteem, she encourages you to develop effective ways to connect authentically with yourself and others.

Titi's time working in counselling services also included short and long-term sessions to individuals, couples and groups on issues such as: family breakdown, weight loss, bereavement, family and peer relationship difficulties, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, diversity issues, abuse, addiction, stress and bullying.

 

Therapeutic Approach

As part of her holistic approach, in the initial stages of consultation, she explores nutrition, fitness, sleep patterns/cycles and personality types. Her training as a Reiki practitioner allows her to support 'energy balancing’ and mindful practices as a way of nurturing your body, thoughts and spirit.

 

As an Integrative counsellor, she offers a holistic approach that includes existential, person-centred, psychodynamic, family/systems theory and cognitive behavioural approaches. These methods allow her flexibility in meeting your unique needs. Furthermore, her practice involves psychodynamic theories on how behaviour can be unconsciously motivated and how the past affects the present. Looking at your past allows her to understand stages of development and reflect on how it has shaped current experiences. 

 

Titi's understanding of CBT helps her in short-term work, which is important for goal setting. It also informs her practice by enabling her to provide coping mechanisms to aid better functioning in social environments, enhance resilience and give resources to manage any future difficulties.

 

Fundamental to her work is the use of Intercultural therapy, which takes into account the whole being of the patient and also the patient's communal life experience in the world both past and present. It is important in her practice to identify the cultural assumptions from both herself and the client, to enhance the therapeutic relationship.

 

Informed by existentialism, she encourages an awareness of the various elements that affect a sense of freedom in this world and how it influences the choices that we make.

 

School-Based Approach

With her experience as an Elementary School Counselor at the Western Academy of Beijing (WAB), she can offer bespoke guidance curriculum programmers and parenting workshops to schools on topics such as:

mindfulness for children in grades K -12 to improve concentration and wellbeing; social thinking to build social and emotional skills; child protection lessons to teach children how to respect personal space and recognize safe and unsafe touch.
