About me and my therapy practiceHello and thank you for taking the time to read my profile. You have already taken a massive step in helping yourself by looking for a therapist. I never forgot how challenging this can feel.
I've been qualified since 2007 and since then I’ve provided counselling in a variety of settings i.e., schools, Start Well Centres, counselling charities and also outdoors with Walk and Talk Therapy.I have a wealth of knowledge and experience of working with both adults and primary aged children.
I offer Person Centred Counselling which means I believe in the inner resilience of clients and in helping them to recognise this for themselves. I offer a safe, non-judgemental environment where clients have the opportunity to discover what is hurting and how to heal. We do this through exploring and being heard, this then enables clients to fully become aware of what they want for themselves, and what barriers and obstacles get in the way of achieving this.
One of the most important aspects of therapy is the relationship between therapist and client. I don’t fix clients, I will help clients to help themselves, to feel empowered and supported in their journey no matter what it’s duration.
I'm currently employed as Senior Counsellor in a local charity, and I have a small private practice. I have a Level 4 Advanced Diploma in Counselling and a Certificate in Bereavement Counselling. I continue to undertake training regularly, my most recent being Trauma Informed, Anxiety and Domestic Abuse, ensuring my knowledge and skills are current and have both my adult and children's safeguarding in place.
I offer face to face, virtual or outdoor sessions and have special interests in working creatively with children, as well as women's health and emotional wellbeing from pregnancy through to menopause.
I look forward to any enquiries you may have.
My first session
I offer a free 30 min telephone session or a face to face session for 30 mins at a small cost ( to cover room hire). This is so we can discuss what help you would like and if we would feel comfortable working together.
