About me and my therapy practice

Hello .. I offer you a supportive, confidential environment to explore whatever you need to talk through. I engage a combination of professional training, experience and a psychosocial/humanistic approach to bring a meaningful resolution to that which is challenging you.

Wrapped within a client centred framework, I offer you a relationship of transparency, maturity, integrity and trust, that aims to support your direction and end goal. My focus is to work alongside that which you seek to change, process and make sense of to strengthen your inner resources. I believe it is important to be flexible and provide an adaptable skills set to suit your presentation, which helps us to gain a clearer understanding of what underpins your conflict.     

Behind my private therapy practice, is the integration of 14 years professional work experience and continuing training.    As well as a Coordinator of a Mental Health Crisis Service, my employed and self employed positions as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist are anchored in reputable organisations and services, across which I have provided therapeutic support for both familiar and complex issues from work related stress to dissociative disorders.

It is my work ethic to engage a maintainable client base. My profile is here to give you an insight of me as a professional therapist and my approach to this role, for which I encourage a ‘collaborative working together philosophy.’

My first session

As the therapeutic relationship is one in which you are investing with me.  It is necessary that I recognise what you want from your therapy journey so we don't waste the valued time you are putting in to yourself.  The 'enquiry session/initial consultation’ can be anxiety provoking .. though I hope here, you can establish if this is where you want to be.  It is an evaluation of how you got to this point, of what outcome you want from therapy, an opportunity to ask the questions you have, and to learn if what insights and approaches I have to offer will work for you.  Whether you are familiar to Counselling therapy or not, my interest is in learning how I can best serve what outcome you want - which is an ongoing goal of our work together.

For the 'initial' 50 minute interaction I would invite you to my practice for an In Person appointment, however, Zoom or Telephone are optional.  This 'first enquiry' is engaged at a reduced fee, and does not put us into an Agreement.  I would hope you will gain a true reflection of what working together would be like to support your decision when searching for the right therapist for you, and as with any client relationship, there is no expectation for you to further your therapy.

To arrange this more personalised consultation session in our diaries, I invite you to text me directly on .. 07766 200 100 or email via The BACP (always check your Junk folder for the reply too)

The length of time an individual will want of therapy is determined by what you are seeking and if you want your therapy to be ongoing or intermittent?   These factors shape the process and achievement of your desired outcome.
