About me and my therapy practice

Hello and welcome,

I understand that it can be daunting to choose a therapist online before meeting in person so let me tell you a bit about my professional background.

The foundation of my work is underpinned by establishing a high quality therapeutic relationship with my clients. This enables us to work together in a way that is safe and supportive to help you to identify and action the desired changes in your life.

As well as my private practice at Orenna, I have experience of working for a local Hospice Bereavement Counselling Service, the NHS Staff Counselling Service, (as a volunteer and on contract), A Domestic Violence Service, Occupational Health Programs, The Local Authority & EAPs.

My background is in Human Resources Management and I maintain strong links with business to the present day. 

I have a special interest in working with clients navigating the peri-menopause, and those struggling with stress, anxiety and depression. 

I also work with students who are at University, in person or on Zoom who are experiencing educational/social distress.

My therapeutic qualification is in Psychotherapeutic Counselling. I am an Integrative Therapist. This means nothing more than I can use a variety of different therapeutic techniques to enable us to work through your therapy goals together. 

I believe that effective therapy is not a 'one size fits all' approach and your needs are always the priority here.

I am a Certified Telephone and Online Therapist. I offer both face to face sessions and online therapy via Zoom. 

Through my work and life experience, I understand that we can all get stuck from time to time and my aim is to support you while you work out a way forward by offering a non-judgmental and supportive space where the focus is on you.

My first session

Your first session will be up to 1 hour to allow us time to work through our contract, BACP ethical practice & GDPR information at the beginning of the appointment and to answer any questions you may have.

Subsequent appointments are 50 minutes.

Longer appointment of 90 minutes are available by prior request.

If you do not wish to commit to long term therapy at the moment but would still like to benefit from an appointment, I offer a 90 minute 'Single Session Therapy' (sometimes known as ONEplus therapy) in person or on Zoom where I aim to support you as much as possible in one session so that you have the opportunity to start to identify and make the changes you seek. Of course, further support is available if you feel it is needed.
