About me and my therapy practice

Every person and counselling relationship is unique. I strive to attune to each individual with presence and curiosity. I am warm and openminded, and I am committed to being honest because I believe that it is paramount to enabling trust to develop. I meet you as my genuine self, rather than in ‘role’.

I have worked as a qualified Person-Centred therapist for several years and I am now deepening my approach through accredited training in Gestalt psychotherapy.

We accumulate ways of being in the world that supported us in the past but, perhaps, don’t serve us now. This may be held in our bodies, thoughts, emotions, and the way that we relate to ourself and others. Therapy is a process of exploring this together with a balance of safety and challenge. I have experienced personally and with others how this can facilitate deepening self awareness, processing old wounds, and living more authentically.

My professional training and experience supports and illuminates the journey we embark on together, and it enables me to respond with sensitivity to you as a whole person.

Practice description

I co-facilitated CBT groupwork programmes for many years utilising classic approaches for challenging unhelpful thoughts, feelings, and behaviour. I left this role to train in Person-Centred therapy, gaining a first class degree, which deepened and enhanced my understanding of myself and others: the idiosyncratic ways that we navigate our desires, fears, shame, anger, and grief. I understand that the patterns we developed to cope with our lives can become redundant, leaving us in pain and lost.

In 2020, I commenced in depth training in Gestalt psychotherapy which continues to enhance the way that I live and work with growing courage, connection, and awareness. I hope to complete this in 2025. 

All of my professional - and, indeed, personal - experiences have contributed to who I am and how I work today. I am warm, respectful, non-judgemental, and honest, and it is paramount to me that I can provide a supportive space where you may find empathy, peace, and growth.

My first session

Sessions are £45 for 50 minutes.  

I understand it takes real courage to come to counselling, to step into our sensitive inner world with another. The counselling relationship is vital for a person to open and grow and I understand that compatibility is essential. Therefore, I offer a free, 30-minute telephone consultation to mutually explore if this is the right relationship for your needs.
