About me and my therapy practice

I am an Integrative counsellor and have completed my training at Regents University and The Minster Centre. I have experienced my own transformative experience of therapy, this informs my practice as I have an appreciation of therapy as both challenging and rewarding. Prior to training as a counsellor, I have worked in the NHS for 18 years as a nurse and most recently as a specialist nurse with young children and their parents and carers. I have experience in working with families in their transition to parenthood and in supporting families with young children and teenagers with stressful life events. I have an interest in supporting people with bereavements and life-limiting illnesses affecting them or family members. I work with clients in different life stages and from different backgrounds. I offer affirmative and compassionate counselling to the LGBTQ+ community. My work is a trauma-informed approach, which means I am aware of the ways trauma can impact our holistic health. In counselling sessions, we will remain curious about how you are feeling in your body as well as your mind.

My Integrative approach incorporates various ways of working. One way is to explore our experiences of relationships as children, which can support your understanding of yourself in relationships with others. Alongside this, my practice also has a philosophical approach that examines how we make meaning in our lives and acknowledges the struggles and joy this can create. 

Practice description

My counselling offers a compassionate private space where you will be listened to carefully and met with kind curiosity and compassion. Counselling is not a one approach fits all process, it is a unique experience that I as your counsellor gives careful attention to. I will work to get to know you and to support you to tune into your own feelings and explore what they may mean for you. Sometimes in life, we do not have the space to listen to ourselves and this can be a powerful place to start. An important part of the therapy is the therapeutic relationship that develops between us, paying attention to how it feels to be seen and heard in counselling can inform the way we are in other relationships.

Counselling can help support you through difficult times or can be a space where you emotionally refuel yourself. Often in therapy a combination of current life events, past circumstances, and feelings about the future are explored. By doing this we can make sense of how these different jigsaw pieces fit together.

A chance to explore what is commonly accepted

Sometimes we have beliefs, expectations, and values about ourselves and others stemming from our families, communities, societal structures, and our experiences within them. Counselling offers a space for reexamining how you feel about social norms and expectations.

My first session

I want you to find the right therapist for you, when you contact me, I will get back to you within 24 hours. We will schedule a phone call so that I can get an understanding of what you need from counselling, and we can get an idea of if we might work well together.

Your counselling sessions will be weekly at the same time (on the hour) and last for 50 minutes. Payment for each session is in advance and payable by bank transfer.

Once we decide to work together, I will share with you my counselling contract that details my data storage arrangements, confidentiality agreement and cancellation and holiday policy.
