About me and my therapy practice

I work in what is called an integrative way which meals I utilise different tools and techniques to tailor the counselling session to what you want/need and a way that will best help you.

Primarily I utilise something called Person- Centred counselling . What this means is that I will not be giving you advice and direction, nor will I judge you. I strongly believe you know what works best for you so I will work with you, at your pace, with acceptance, to look at the thoughts/feelings/behaviours/issues you want to explore, in a way that you feel comfortable. 

Along side this I also use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing - in which I am a trainee) - a therapy which helps to resolve trauma,  Compassion Focused Therapy - which looks at building skills around showing yourself and others compassion which can build feelings of safety, increased self-confidence and comfort,   some Solution Focused Brief Therapy - which is aimed at helping you with your issues in as fewer sessions as possible by focusing on solutions rather than the problem itself, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) - which helps you to look at unhelpful thoughts/behaviours you may have and work on altering them,  and Neuro Linguistic Programming - which  helps individuals to learn new techniques to work on and deal with difficult situations/thoughts/issues. 

Practice description

Are you struggling at the moment?  Have you had a loss/bereavement that you are finding it hard to cope with because it is just too big? Do you feel like your anxiety has gotten out of control? Do you feel that you are not good enough? Or like things are getting on top of you, that everything is too much at the moment and you have just had enough of thinking like you do?

I am here to help you with all of that, to give you the space and time, focused on you, a listening and supportive ear, somewhere you can talk through whatever you are going through without fear of being judged or of upsetting someone. A space where you can sort through the tangle in your head/life, take control of your thoughts ,  feel more confident in you and the decisions you make and break free from old habits. I want to help you do this, I want to give you the space and time you deserve to become the best version of you that you can.

You may well be finding it hard to find someone you’re able to open up to just from reading a few words online.  Why not get in touch for an informal chat so you feel at ease when choosing me to support you during this difficult time in your life.

Sessions are confidential.

For more information please contact me for more information/any questions

I charge £40 per session (£50 for couples) which can be paid by card, bank transfer or cash.

My first session

In the first session we will discuss what I call the counselling agreement - this sets out the boundaries of how we will work together, the time frame, frequency of sessions, confidentiality etc.   We will then talk about what has brought you into counselling, the things you want to work on and the things you want to achieve as well as what has and hasn't worked for you in the past.  You will also be able to ask me any questions you have about counselling.
