About me and my therapy practice
I am a Relate-trained counsellor and clinical supervisor; I work with couples, individuals and young people who want help with a relationship. All relationships have their own challenges; you may want to seek support now because of a problem you are facing - it might be a separation or an affair, or a communication or sexual difficulty. Or you may wonder whether to start a family. Perhaps you are having trouble finding the right person.
In addition to relationship work, I have experience working with loss, anxiety and depression, ASD, substance abuse, parenting issues, stress and anger, bereavement. I specialise in supporting people whose lives are affected by cancer. I can help you think about the impact on your life of a diagnosis, either for yourself or for someone you care about.
I draw from a range of therapeutic approaches - integrative, psychodynamic, systemic. I will find the right interventions that can help you. My method is to work collaboratively with clients; this is 'your' counselling and it is important you have some say in the process. In my experience, the best counselling outcomes are the result of a trusting relationship between client and counsellor.
I offer a space where you will feel listened to and not judged, and where you can productively explore the difficulties you bring. Together we will look at what changes you want and how you can bring them about.
In addition to my private practise and counselling for Relate, I work for an organisation providing cancer care.
My first session
In our first session we will explore what it is that has brought you to counselling. I ask you questions about yourself and explain how I work. We can then think about whether my way of working is what you are looking for.
Currently because of Covid-19 I am offering online and telephone counselling only.
