Availability

I currently have both daytime and some evening availability. I have also been able to connect with clients with telephone counselling which I found gave my clients a greater degree of privacy and helped a great deal during the recent lockdowns.

About me and my therapy practice

By seeking therapy, you have made the first step to empowering yourself to overcome what may be worrying you. I am able to offer you a confidential, warm and safe space where you are free to speak your truth and have someone listen with empathy and compassion. “I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become”, Carl Jung believed everyone strived to be the best version of themselves and as a counsellor, I wholeheartedly believe the same. If you have trouble with setting boundaries and self care, I can help you learn to prioritise yourself and help you look forward to a more focused future.

I am a Person-Centred counsellor which means I allow my clients to be themselves and to focus on goals that work for them without the fear of judgement. I specialise in difficult childhoods, low self esteem, confidence building and recovering from narcissistic/domestic abuse. I offer a free initial telephone call where we will discuss your requirements.

I understand how it feels to sit in judgement, confusion and shame and I can work with you to lessen these feelings. I believe that everyone is the expert on themselves and therefore I don't advise but celebrate in the individuality of every single one of my clients, we will work together to achieve an outcome that works for you.

Practice description

I offer my clients complete honesty and unconditional positive regard in a very down to earth, cosy and calming setting.

My first session

I will firstly attempt to make telephone contact to draw up a contract between us that works for both of us - this initial contact will be free of charge and will ensure that I am working ethically and safely within my limits as a therapist.
