I currently have availability in my practice. I can be contacted via email, through this site or via my mobile contact number in the first instance. An initial 'Get to know each other' appointment will be offered via Telephone or Zoom/Teams or a similar platform to suit, at which we can arrange next steps if this meets your needs. My availability from week to week is flexible and I can offer evening and weekend appointments. I recognise that life is quite often busy and I have adapted my practice to provide a service that can easily be adjusted to accommodate your circumstances and can offer sessions through a range of mediums, including face to face, telephone and video.
About me and my therapy practice
Welcome to my profile. I am a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and a member of the BACP and I would like to introduce you to my Counselling Service, that can offer a safe and trusting environment through the use of Talking Therapy. The path that we walk in life can be long and winding and we may hit a few bumps along the way. Some of the bumps we negotiate without too much difficulty, but other bumps throw a curve ball, that can be troublesome and may knock us off our feet and it is these bumps I would like to help to support you over and back on track. I believe that we can all write our own narrative in life, and every story that is written is unique and relative to the individual. However, sometimes we get stuck and struggle to continue as events become too painful to explore and the meanings that we place on these experiences are difficult to make sense of. Therapy can help to unravel that stuckness that we may be feeling and set us back on a path to healing.
My background is in sexual abuse, domestic violence and trauma therapy and I have experience in grief counselling and the difficulties that are experienced through mental health illness. In working with these difficulties I have adjusted my practice to work with symptoms of depression, anxiety, guilt, shame, dissociation, PTSD and low mood and self-esteem. My training is as an Integrative Counsellor and combines elements of different approaches, such as Psychodynamic, Person-Centred and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. By utilising the integrative method of therapy, I am able to take in to account you as an individual, your circumstance and can tailor the therapeutic journey to meet your needs, as ‘one size does not fit all’.
