About me and my therapy practice
Having been both client and counsellor, I am passionate about making counselling and psychotherapy accessible to everyone. I believe that everyone has the right to be heard and understood.
For almost 10 years I worked in roles helping to safeguard vulnerable children and their families. Several years ago I realised that I wanted to work with people more relationally and collaboratively so began to train as a counsellor. I have a Masters Degree in Counselling Psychology and describe myself as a humanistic counsellor that leans towards a person-centred approach. This means that I believe, given the right conditions, we are all able to achieve growth.
I have a private practice which is based in Longton, Stoke-on-Trent and I offer face to face, telephone and online support to adults. Previously, I spent three three years working at a local hospice, the Douglas Macmillan Hospice as a volunteer bereavement counsellor. I have experience of working with a wide range of adults and the challenges that they face. I find that the impact of one experience is often intertwined with another and so, I avoid working with labels and instead focus on experiences and emotions as they present themselves.
I believe that the way we 'click' is integral to the success of our work and so I strive to nurture our relationship using warmth and empathy. If you would like to find out more, please contact me using the contact information below. I will be happy to arrange a FREE, 30 minute introductory session to explore what you would like from counselling and to discuss how we might achieve it. If I seem the right fit for you, we can then make a schedule to suit your pace and budget.
I have a comfortable and private office based in Elgin Chambers, Cemetery Road, Shelton. There is free on-site parking and toilets.
Due to Covid-19, all furnishings and surfaces are cleaned between sessions, the room is aired, a HEPA air filter is used and seating adheres to social distancing guidance.
If you have any special requirements or concerns about your session, please contact me as I will try my best to accommodate them.
