About me and my therapy practice

Hello and thank you for taking the time to read my profile.

Sometimes we all experience days where our thoughts and feelings start to weigh heavily on us emotionally. These challenges can become more of a struggle than normal and as a result, we don’t feel quite like ourselves. Having the right person to talk to, voice your concerns, can be extremely helpful.

However, for one reason or another, it might be hard to find the right person. Talking to friends or loved ones might feel awkward. or it might feel like there isn’t anyone around that you can talk to or confide in.

I can offer a safe, supportive, confidential, and relaxing space to allow you to work through your thoughts and feelings and to explore your choices at your own pace. Supporting you to gain clarity regarding your current situation, therefore developing your ability to see it from a different perspective and the options that may be available to you. 

Practice description

My preferred approach is humanistic integrative counselling, this means that I like to use a variety of therapeutic models to support clients. This enables me to deliver an individual, tailored approach to suit you. By calling on both talking therapy and creative-base skills to help you to explore your experiences. I find that creative-based therapy skills support clients to reach some of those emotions tied to memories or experiences that they may have found it hard to put into words more easily. There is no need to be artistic to benefit from this way of working if indeed you choose to work this way.

I can offer both short and long term face to face, video calls counselling sessions, with the support, understanding and empathy you need to work towards your own personal goals and any other aspirations you are struggling to achieve.

I have experience of working with a variety of clients, including children, young people and adults; providing support with a range of issues such as low self-esteem, anxiety, loss, grief bereavement, depression, relationship issues, identity issues, abuse and addiction.

I understand that it takes courage to make those first important steps. So, thank you for taking the time to read my profile. If you feel that it would be beneficial to speak to me, please contact me by phone or email.
