About me and my therapy practice

Underpinning my work is a belief that each client is individual and has the potential to make changes and become more fulfilled. Whilst there might be a specific issue that has brought you to counselling, there might be something less specific. Perhaps you feel that something needs to change but feel unsure about how to do this. I will help you to explore your thoughts and feelings in relation to current or past difficulties and over time you can feel more confident in talking things through. As you begin to understand more about how you think and feel, this can help you to make decisions that are right for you.

Counselling begins with an assessment. We will meet for 50 minutes and this allows us the time to get a feeling for what it would be like to work together. I will listen to you and ask you some questions as this will help me to understand what you are looking for from counselling. Often feelings that might have been put to the back of your mind can surface and I will work alongside you to ease any concerns you might be experiencing.

I am an experienced counsellor offering open-ended or time limited sessions on a once-weekly basis. My approach is psychodynamic. This means I will help you to explore how you think and feel about your relationship with yourself, with others and with the world you live in as well as how repetitive and unhelpful patterns of behaviour might be holding you back.

I currently work in various settings with adult men and women of different ages, backgrounds and cultures.

If you would like to ask me any questions about counselling please email or telephone me (if you need to leave a message I will call you back within 24 hours).
