About me and my therapy practice

An experienced, warm and empathic counsellor working using an integrative approach in an ethical and confidential way.  Now offering socially distanced counselling in person as well as online via zoom.

I will provide an environment that is calm and feels safe, so giving you time to explore what is going on for you at your own pace. I will be alongside you to enable you to move to a better place that works for you and so facilitating change.

Practice description

I work with individuals with a variety of issues using an integrated approach. This entails using person-centred, psychodynamic and CBT in varying amounts depending on what it is you bring and what suits you during our time together. 

I also have a lot of experience of working with young people and still work at Childline, NSPCC. 

I have special interest in working with trauma and abuse and have completed further training with the Morris Centre covering emotional, physical and/or sexual abuse. I have also continued to work with bereavement at Mind and have experience of working with pet bereavement. 

My first session

During your first session we will spend some time going through the counselling agreement together. This gives us a chance to look at what I can offer you as a therapist and a chance to find it out what it is you are hoping to get from our time together. 

We can if you prefer have a brief chat by phone or email first if you are more comfortable with that so feel free to call me or send me a message.
