About me and my therapy practice
Feeling a bit lost, stuck, confused and unhappy but you're not sure why? Struggling with work, relationships or not coping with what life throws at you? Perhaps you've lost someone or something very important to you and you’re not sure how to make sense of it, how to adjust, or where you fit in the world.
Maybe you’re just not sure why you’re feeling or behaving the way you are at the moment, but you do know that it's something you’d like to understand and to change.
Working with a Counsellor can really help you to unravel these types of feelings, thoughts and uncertainties. It can offer you new awareness of how you’re living life now, and new perspectives on how you see your future. Counselling can bring you deeper self-awareness and help you to grow a healthy relationship with yourself, as well as with others.
I'm passionate about supporting clients to find their voice, express their uniqueness. I'm warm, respectful and offer a safe, positive environment for you to be yourself and to be heard. I will help you to explore and challenge your thinking and feelings, in support of you finding ways of moving forward that work for you. My hope is that you will get to know yourself better, feel happier and more ready and confident to make change for your future.
Counselling might feel daunting and unknown, so I respect your courage and I'm glad that you're here, looking for support and beginning to seek change. I welcome you as a unique individual whatever your religious, cultural or family background, your sexuality, or gender identity.
If you're looking for a calm and confidential space to think and make sense of your own unique story, I'd love to hear from you.
My client work has been mainly in a NHS setting from GP referrals, working with a wide age range of clients, of all backgrounds, supporting them with difficult life events and transitions. I have particular experience in working with bereavement and loss, including prolonged grief and bereavement by suicide. I have also worked with clients with life-limiting and chronic illness. I can help with feelings of low self-esteem, low mood, grief, anxiety and depression.
Before training as a counsellor, I built 20 years’ experience working predominantly in People and Development roles in business, supporting people with stress, overwhelm, work-related issues, low confidence and personal development challenges.
I have an interest in the impact of bereavement on family relationships and dynamics, particularly sibling bereavement.
I'm fully qualified with A Postgraduate Diploma (PG DiP), Counselling & Psychotherapy, Salford University.
As a registered Member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP), I work to their ethical framework to keep us both safe.
Client confidentiality is very important to me. I commit to handling your data with care and in accordance with GDPR requirements.
My first session
Contacting counsellors and arranging a first meeting can feel like a huge step, so it’s important to feel at ease with a counsellor and with the process.
You are welcome to contact me to arrange;
A free 20 minute confidential telephone consultation - I can hear about what brings you to counselling and what you are hoping for. I will share with you how I work and answer any questions you might have about the counselling process. It will also help us to understand how we might work together, and we can take it from there depending on how you're feeling.
Our First Session - In our first session we will have plenty of time to talk about what's troubling you and to begin our work together.
If you are happy to meet face to face, my therapy room is a good sized, ventilated space.
If you would prefer to meet online I have flexibility with appointment times and we can discuss options when we arrange your first session.
Please contact me if you would like to arrange a call or a first session. If I can’t pick up your call, please leave a message and I will contact you as soon as I possibly can.
