About me and my therapy practice
I would probably be described as a warm, empathic person who is approachable and non judgemental. I work primarily as a person centred counsellor, where the focus is on you and your sense of self. My specialism is working with people who have had a potential life changing medical diagnosis and are struggling to come to terms with this. I was fortunate to speak at the Stroke Alliance for Europe conference in Porto in 2019. I understand that you are not defined by your diagnosis.
I offer a safe, confidential and non judgemental environment where clients are encouraged to explore their feelings. I support clients to recognise and sit with the hard stuff.
Perhaps you are a perfectionist or carry shame, perhaps you ruminate over the past and what the future will bring and this is having a detrimental impact on your quality of life. It could be that you have a general sense of unease or unhappiness that you can’t quite understand, I will sit with you to help you and reach your potential.
Alongside my experience of working with life changing health conditions and the hidden effects of these I also work with a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, trauma, rape, sexual assault and domestic violence.
As a counsellor I can help you to explore these feelings at your own pace and I feel my compassion, genuineness and warmth go a long way to building a positive rapport within the therapeutic relationship. It can be daunting talking to a stranger about your mental health however it can lead to a sense of ease, hope and acceptance.
Taking those first steps to therapy can feel difficult and finding the right counsellor can lead to clarity and a sense of peace.
