About me and my therapy practice
I am a BACP registered integral counsellor in Portsmouth, UK, with over 10 years of experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including Anxiety, Depression, Family and Relationship issues, Confidence and self esteem. I specialise in supporting Survivors/victims of Domestic Abuse and Sexual Assault, Loss, Grief and Bereavement. I also have a background in working with children and young people, I therefore have a current DBS certificate.
My style of therapy is Empathic, Caring and Nurturing. I understand that counselling can be daunting and scary, so I will be led by you, my approach is from an integral combination of therapies which support the needs of the client. Counselling is not a 'one size fits all' approach, meaning you are able to work with what is most important to you now, this may be Cognitive and behavioural, Psychodynamic, person centred or inner child. I believe in treating everyone with Respect, Compassion, and Sensitivity and to Enable you to take that step toward a life you want and are in control of.
I work predominantly over the telephone and on-line platforms, such as Zoom, Teams, Skype, FaceTime or WhatsApp, whatever you feel most comfortable with.
I have found that many people find this type of counselling session easier in terms of accessing and opening up.
I have also found that some start with telephone and move on to video as they become more confident.
My first session
" Recognising you are in pain is the first step, Trusting in someone when you are vulnerable is the next........."
I understand the courage it takes to want to seek help and support, if you are ready to take that step with me, then I am here to support and empower you.
Your first session will be your chance to get to know me and feel if I would be the person you will feel safe and comfortable to talk to.
I will also complete with you a short assessment of how you are feeling and to see what you want to gain from your sessions.
