About me and my therapy practice
I am a counsellor and psychotherapist available to meet in person in Lancaster or via secure online video.
I offer a safe and caring environment in which you can share, explore, understand and change your experience of anything that is causing you difficulty or distress. My role as a therapist is to facilitate that process of empowerment and growth, using my training and experience to work with you to help you achieve your goals. You will receive my respect and support throughout that journey.
My work with clients is centred upon therapeutic relationships built on empathy, honesty and respect. You will encounter a supportive, safe environment in which you feel understood and empowered to make the changes that are right for you.
As your counsellor or therapist, I will be alongside you as you explore and work through difficulties or choices, creating between us an environment for growth and empowerment. I commit to being real, open and engaged as an active participant in the therapeutic work. You may be invited to experience and clarify your emotions, or to consider where you find meaning in your life, but you will remain in control of each session.
The basis of my counselling and psychotherapy work is person-centred, influenced by related training and development in emotion-focussed therapy and existentialist approaches.
