About me and my therapy practice
My aim is to create a warm confidential safe space for you to feel respected, heard, understood and supported, enabling you to find meaning in your difficulties. My belief is that Counselling can improve your self-awareness and in doing so will help you feel differently about yourself and life.
My inspiration for this career stems from a desire to connect and communicate with people. This inclination has been a thread throughout my life. Having undertaken Counselling myself I have directly experienced the cathartic and powerful change that it can bring about. This both inspired me to train as a counsellor and enabled me to develop a more profound learning process.
I will work to help you understand how past events and problems can influence the current way you view yourself and others. This may include destructive thoughts and patterns of behaviour. During the initial consultation we will discuss what has prompted you to contact me including any information you are willing to share, and what you hope to achieve from counselling.
I am trained as an 'Integrative Relational Psychotherapeutic Counsellor'. I draw on a framework of areas such as Psychodynamic, Humanistic, Gestalt and Cognitive theories to inform my work.
I am also interested in mindfulness and meditation techniques to bring about understanding, compassion, self-care and change. I can therefore work in a flexible way to ensure that our therapeutic relationship gives you the maximum support.
I charge £50 for individuals and £80 for a couple .
