About me and my therapy practice
I am an Integrative Counsellor, with additional specialist training and extensive experience in Trauma Therapy and Bereavement Counselling. I draw from several counselling approaches but overall I am relational and compassion focused. I believe in your capacity for innate knowing and personal growth. Sadly we can lose our connection to ourselves and consequently our ability to trust in our own capacity. Counselling can help us to restore this connection.
I offer a warm and non-judgmental space where together we can explore any difficulties or challenges you may be facing and you can express your thoughts and emotions in a safe environment, at your pace; working together to gain new perspectives, greater insights and create deeper meaning in your life. You may be experiencing low mood, anxiety, stress or burn-out, have suffered a bereavement or significant loss, trauma, be struggling with identity, loss of purpose and meaning, relationship difficulties or all of the above and more. Whatever your need, I am here to listen without judgment or expectation, to help you find your own way forward.
I have extensive experience of working in a diverse range of counselling and mental health settings, as well as Schools, Colleges and Universities. I have also worked as a Counselling Trainer and Lecturer at Degree level.
I work with adults and young people aged 13 years and over. I offer a reduced rate for initial appointments at £40 and counselling sessions thereafter at £50 for daytime sessions and £60 for evening sessions. Available for face to face sessions.
My first session
I offer an initial session for us to meet and discuss your needs and hopes from counselling. This means that I can tailor my approach to meet your needs, where possible. It can take time to develop the trust and courage needed to share vulnerability. So often we face societal pressures and expectations for change and achievement; in life we may feel pushed too hard, too soon but in counselling we will work at your pace.
