About me and my therapy practice

Being listened to and being heard, is powerful. Having space to open up and talk, space that is safe and free of judgement, helps. This is what I do, I can help.

I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor and a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP). I adhere to their values, morals and code of ethics.

I offer single session therapy, short-term and long-term counselling online via Zoom, and telephone for young persons (16+), adults and older adults.

My training over 4-year period has been in Person Centred Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Solution Focused Theory, Brief Therapy and Brief Therapy with Children and Young People. I hold a BA in Counselling and I have been practising Counselling since September 2016.

Practice description

I specialize in Trauma, Bereavement and Loss. I first started researching and studying Trauma therapy in my first year of University in 2015 and as time passed my interest in the field piqued allowing me to complete my dissertation in researching deeper contextual understanding of trauma and healing. I have since completed CPD courses with various organisations related to Trauma studies such as NICABM (National Institute for the Clinical Application of Behavioural Medicine), PODS (Positive Outcomes for Dissociative Survivors) and regularly researching the field through reading relevant books, following research and online communities.

I aim to foster a safe and trusting environment, allowing you to be yourself completely, without judgement. I trust your ability to have within yourself, the wisdom to carry yourself forward. You are the expert in your own life and know what you require for your own personal development, growth and coming to terms with losses. I believe the therapeutic relationship is the very essence of therapy. Finding who you are through relating to another, rather than who you ought to be, is freeing and liberating.

I offer a free 30 minute consultation, before booking sessions to discuss your needs and answer any questions you have. I look forward to supporting you with empathy and regard.
