About me and my therapy practice
My counselling offers you a space to reflect on your current life, your past circumstances, and your feelings about the future. I offer you a connected and engaged therapeutic relationship to explore your life from the viewpoint that all you feel and experience is valid and important.
At times of stress, trauma, or loss our past can inform the way we manage in the present. Relationship patterns that you thought were old can become alive again in our current relationship with ourselves and others. Noticing and exploring these patterns in therapy can help form new ways of relating that are more satisfying.
Sometimes we have beliefs, expectations, and values about ourselves and others stemming from our families, communities, societal structures, and our experiences within them.
These experiences may give us a sense of belonging. However, when unquestioned can leave us with a sense of lacking if we feel we do not fulfil an expectation or fit in. Counselling gives the space to redefine the identities we have, whether it be gender or sexuality, roles in relationships, or at work. It can give you the freedom to explore whether your beliefs about yourself serve you in your life or not.
I am an Integrative Counsellor with extensive experience working in health and psycho-social care. I trained at The Minster Centre and I incorporate a variety of therapeutic theories to support clients to explore their lives. I work in a trauma-informed way which means I am aware of the ways trauma can impact us long after the trauma has passed in our minds and our body. I work in a relational way using the therapeutic relationship that develops between us to give insights into other relationships in your life.
I have experience working with clients in different life stages and from different backgrounds. I offer affirmative and compassionate counselling to the LGBTQ+ community.
