About me and my therapy practice
I am a BACP registered counsellor working in Private Practice, as well as in a Bereavement Counselling service.
My main area of interest is Bereavement and Loss. Loss includes areas such as: divorce and separation, the ending of an important relationship, pregnancy loss, a sense of displacement following a move, entering a new stage of life, redundancy, retirement, changing identity and difficult times of transition. I also have experience of working with low mood, issues with self-esteem, anxiety and relationship difficulties.
My way of working with clients is Integrative-relational. This means that I draw on a range of different counselling theories and approaches to support my work with clients. It also means that I believe that it is the quality of relationship and connection between you and I that will be the most important thing in supporting you when you are distressed; helping you to have deeper insight into yourself and your relationships.
This is why it is important to me to provide a confidential and non-judgemental space, where you can feel safe and free to give voice to your feelings and experience. In this atmosphere you can feel supported to gain new perspective and to make the changes that may be needed to help you move towards personal growth and a greater sense of resilience.
I would normally see you weekly for 50 minute sessions, either for a set time (for example for six or twelve weeks) or for a longer, more open-ended time frame if that is what we agree.
I am committed to on-going professional development and continue to learn and deepen my practice so I can best support my clients.
