About me and my therapy practice

I am an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist; this means I offer a mixture of three therapeutic models in a way that caters to the specific needs of my clients. Each individual is unique with their own unique life experiences and deserves their therapy to uniquely cater to their desires and goals. Creating a safe, non-judgemental space to confide and explore their life experiences and thoughts, I meet each client where they are at to support their ability to know what is best for them. I understand and trust that they are the expert of their own life and encourage their ability to make positive decisions for their growth and development.

I have gained a wealth of experience working with people from all walks of life in a variety of situations and practices. However, my special interest is working with minority groups and I have an expertise in counselling the LGBTQ+ community and people of colour living in the UK. 

Practice description

I work online and by telephone. My clients appreciate the ease and flexibility of this style of therapy as they can meet from the comfort of their own home or preferred space. 

My first session

Our very first session will be a telephone consultation that lasts for 15 mins. This is an opportunity for you to share what has brought you to therapy, ask me any questions you may have about my practice and get a sense of whether I am the right therapist for you. There is no obligation and if you need time to think or check out some other therapists beforehand that is supported. If you would like to start sessions with me, the next step is determine how long you would like to attend therapy for, it may be short-term (6 sessions is usually the minimum) or a long-term basis ranging up to open-ended.

Providing you feel comfortable to start working together, we can then arrange a 50 min session, which will be at full cost. First sessions can be quite a daunting experience (especially if you’ve never had therapy before), but my style of therapy is all about being completely present with you; making sure you feel heard and at ease. After discussing the counselling contract together, we will then work at your pace to discuss in more detail about why you want therapy alongside what effects you hope therapy will have. This session is also an opportunity for me to begin to get to know you as an individual, so I may ask broader questions to add some context to what has shaped you into the person you are today, as well. 

In the first few sessions I will likely take notes in order to not miss any important details but I am sensitive about this as to not distract from what you are sharing!
