About me and my therapy practice
The most common 5 words I hear in in the therapy room are “you must think I’m crazy” I never do! If you are feeling it; it is valid. What can sometimes happen is feelings get confused with facts. I will sit with you while you explore those things and find the tools and strengths that you undoubtedly have within but have perhaps forgotten along the way.
Finding the right therapist for you can feel daunting; I understand that. It is so important that you find the best fit for you; I am happy to answer any questions you have. Drop me a text or email and we can decide together if it is a good fit for you. There is never any pressure from me and I will happily recommend alternative support if we feel that is more appropriate for you.
I offer time and space in a confidential environment either face to face, online or telephone. I trained integratively and work from a person centred core which means that I am client led and draw from a range of therapeutic approaches to suit you, after all this is your journey. My aim is to create a warm environment where my clients feel safe and supported to open up and move forward with their lives.
I have a great deal of experience working with bereavement and loss from my time offering long time support in a hospice supporting patients, carers and those bereaved. For the past 18 months I have worked for the NHS as a Staff Counsellor.
Prior to training to become a counsellor I spent 12 years in the RAF and 10 years working within education supporting students with Autism and Aspergers. I completed a placement within the school offering one to one counselling; I strongly believe in the value of offering a non judgemental space to help young people unlock their potential. I have a great deal of experience professionally and personally supporting those from the LGBT+ community.
I do not believe that there should be a one size fits all approach. You are unique and with me so will your counselling experience be.
