About me and my therapy practice
We can all experience difficulties at times and feel overwhelmed, confused, anxious, scared or alone. It is not always easy or practical to confide in friends or family. In such situations, counselling can often help.
I embrace diversity and differences and I have been privileged to work with people from different walks of life. I can offer you a safe and confidential environment where you can explore and discuss your concerns at your own pace, without fear of judgement. My approach is non-directive, which means that YOU decide what and how much you tell me.
I work in an integrative and relational way. I use different counselling models and techniques to adapt my approach to your unique needs and the most important aspect of our work together will be our relationship based on trust, empathy and acceptance. If appropriate and desired, aspects of solution-focused hypnotherapy, such as deep relaxation and visualisation, can also be integrated to counselling to reduce anxiety and stress and help you to make positive changes to your life to achieve your goals. Integrating various approaches allows therapy to be personalised to you and your needs. Please look at my website or contact me if you would like further information.
I have experience working with various issues, including but not limited to anger, anxiety, depression, domestic abuse, isolation and loneliness, pregnancy issues, rape, sexual violence and trauma. Whatever you are experiencing, we will explore it together, patiently and at your own pace.
I offer face-to-face, short-term, long-term and open-ended counselling. The 30 minute initial consultation is free to give us the opportunity to meet and decide if we can work together while giving you a chance to ask me questions. My usual rate is £40 for an hour session after the initial consultation. I also offer concessions for clients on low-income and student counsellors.
