About me and my therapy practice
I am a therapist working mainly in the person-centred approach and a registered member of the BACP.
The person-centred approach places the greatest importance on the therapeutic relationship between client and counsellor; this is based on mutual respect and dignity. I respect your right to autonomy, trusting that you are the expert in your own experience.
Counselling can be helpful for many different issues including, but not limited to, relationship difficulties, anxiety, stress, depression, self esteem issues and anger.
Sometimes it's not easy to even know yourself what's not feeling right, and we can explore this together.
Our work together may enhance a sense of wellbeing & increase personal resilience, or help towards finding meaning within your own personal & cultural context.
I can help by offering a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space for you to talk things through with someone outside of your family or circle of friends, who is neutral and completely accepting of you.
I qualified as a therapist with a first class BA (Hons) in Person-centred Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP Accredited).
With a background in educational settings, I have many years training and experience working with young people on the autism spectrum, with speech & language or learning difficulties.
I have experience working for a variety of different charitable agencies. I previously worked providing counselling for young people aged 11-25 at a Basingstoke charity. In addition to this I have trained in counselling clients on the autism spectrum.
I also volunteered as a bereavement counsellor at Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice, where I worked with patients and their families both pre- and post-bereavement.
One of my current roles is in a NHS-partnered mental health crisis drop-in service, where I support a wide variety of people in times of vulnerability. Prior to this I set up and ran a wellbeing café.
My first session
I provide a free, no obligation 20 minute phone consultation where you may ask me questions about how I work and I can learn a bit more about what brought you to seek counselling.
If you decide you'd like to begin regular sessions, these are usually held in the same slot weekly. If, however, this is not possible for you due to personal circumstances, we can work together to accommodate this.
In addition to the BACP Ethical Code, I adhere to GDPR laws. We can discuss how I protect your personal data in our initial meeting.
