Now more than ever we need to take care of our minds, I am still providing Counselling and Psychotherapy online via Zoom, FaceTime or Skype Monday - Thursday 11.00 - 20.00.

About me and my therapy practice

I can offer a supportive, kind, non-judgemental space to help you explore whatever it is you are going through. You might be feeling anxious, depressed or stressed, going through life changes, struggling with relationships, self-worth, looking to explore yourself, your identify or even understand and change behaviours. Additionally, I specialise in working with the LGBTQIA+ community an area I am incredibly passionate about.

I have been working in private practice since October 2018 and am passionate about supporting people with their mental health and wellbeing. Our work together will be strictly confidential, giving you the confidence to know you can share what’s on your mind and that your thoughts will stay with me. The focus of the session is on you, and I am not here to make any judgements. My therapeutic approach isn’t about judgements or blaming, it’s about understanding and growth.

If you would like to find out more about me, how I work, and to get a feel for if I am the right therapist for you, please email or call me.

My experience

I Integrate several therapeutic theories and techniques to offer a bespoke service tailoring my approach to you and your needs. I have extensive Therapeutic experience, a MA in Counselling and Psychotherapy Practice, a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and teach Level 2 and 3 Counselling to trainees. I am also a volunteer supervisor at a local organisation in Swindon.

I embrace difference and diversity and have worked with clients from a wide range of backgrounds. No matter who you are, what you have experienced or what’s happening for you I am here to listen and provide you with therapeutic support. I have worked with a diverse range of clients over the past five years, gaining experience from working with three charities, St Christopher’s Hospice, METRO Charity and Place 2 Be, along with my private practice experience.

Practice description

How does it work?

When you get in touch, we will have a conversation to find out what support you may be looking for and for you to get a feel for if I am the right therapist for you. We can then arrange an initial session / assessment.

There will be no obligation to continue with sessions after the initial assessment, it is important for you to decide if you feel comfortable and wish to work with me.

Sessions last 50 minutes and are on a weekly basis at the same time on the same day. I am currently unable to offer fortnightly sessions due to availability. 

My first session

The first session is a mix of an initial session with an assessment. In this session you will have the time to speak more about what’s going on for you and the reasons for seeking Therapy. You may also have some goals you wish to work towards that we can explore. There will be a few questions I will ask, and you will hopefully get a feel for how you find working with me.

We won’t dive in too deep to quickly as it is important for us to develop a therapeutic relationship to help you feel comfortable to explore things deeper.

Towards the end of the session, you can then decide if I'm the right Therapist for you and what you would like to do with sessions going forward. You may wish to work long term, open ended or to a set number of sessions.
