About me and my therapy practice
I am an experienced integrative counsellor and play therapist working with adults, adolescents and children, qualified to Advanced Diploma Level. I offer counselling to individuals on a one-to-one basis with the flexibility of both daytime and evening appointments at The Safe Place which is a comfortable and dedicated counselling suite in Farington.
I bring a wide range of skills, specialist training and experience to my practice, and place high importance on the therapeutic relationship and the unique value of each individual. I offer the warmth, respect and acceptance necessary in exploring life's issues within a safe and nurturing therapeutic environment.
As an integrative therapist, I am able to draw upon interventions from a range of approaches such as Transactional Analysis and Gestalt Therapy in order to maximise the benefit of the therapeutic experience for each individual. I have had extensive training, and have a particular interest in working in the areas of crisis pregnancy and post abortion stress. In addition to this, I have worked with a wide and varied range of life issues
In my work with children, I use the Play Therapy model to help the child explore and make sense of the situation they find themselves in, using a variety of media including toys, games, art materials, books and sand tray.
I appreciate how difficult it can be to ask for help when things are getting too much. Do feel free to get in touch. I offer a 30 minute initial consultation free of charge.
