About me and my therapy practice
An experienced professional with almost 41 years of forward facing community work, with the last 6 years supporting clients with mental health and well-being concerns, on a daily basis.
During our sessions I will help you to explore your own feelings, emotions, beliefs, behaviours and views, so that you can become more self-aware and achieve greater independence, through talking, focus, challenge and reflection.
I will encourage you to bring your concerns to the sessions, the direction is led by you, at your pace.
I will treat you as the expert, as nobody else understands exactly what it is like to be you.
I will not judge you under any circumstances. My commitment to you is that I will show empathy and remain real and honest whist sharing your journey with you.
We will develop a trusting relationship, which will allow you to open up in a therapeutic environment where you will feel safe to explore whatever you feel you wish to bring to each session.
I completely understand how difficult it is to first identify then open up to a complete stranger. I provide a warm, friendly and professional service within a safe space to assist you with this process.
