About me and my therapy practice

Whatever you are struggling with, my approach here is professional, confidential, safe and non-judgemental, offering you an impartial space to freely discuss your presenting issues. Making the first step is often the biggest one! 

Investing in yourself is a powerful tool.

Practice description

I believe that counselling should be at your pace, and I draw upon various approaches which best fit your individual needs, I am a qualified Humanistic therapist focussing on the person-centred approach, and I also incorporate Gestalt Therapy, Brief therapy and Solution focussed therapy into my practice.

My Humanistic approach focuses on showing empathy and understanding for my fellow human beings, which I use to help create a therapeutic relationship with my clients. I see my clients as unique individuals who have the ability to find their own answers given the right conditions and environment. 

My first session

Initially, I offer a free 30-minute telephone conversation. This is an opportunity for you to see if I can help, and if we can work together. There is also time for you to ask any initial questions you might have.

Our first session together is an opportunity for you to talk through what has brought you to counselling, to establish what you would like to gain from it, and for you to ascertain whether you feel comfortable working with me. The client-therapist relationship is important, you need to feel safe in order to trust, so you have the full therapeutic hour on our first meet to see how that sits with you.
