About me and my therapy practice
The present can be a difficult and isolating time. Are you dealing with loss, bereavement, difficulty in relationships? Maybe work stress is spoiling the balance in your life. Perhaps you need to work on behavioural issues, anxiety, panic attacks? Would you like to explore gender or other identity issues? Are you facing retirement, feel challenged with your change in circumstances? I can offer a professional and confidential arena in which to explore your issues. Firstly, we might have a phone or email talk, establish issues and then arrange an initial session, to look at the problems closely and if you felt comfortable with me, plan some sessions together. I would welcome you to my therapy room, in Belper and explain how we would work together. I have achieved great success in helping young people, adults, couples, older people, families and those with a busy work-life, needing solution focused time limited support. Parking is available and appointments are available daytime and evenings. I have many years of practice experience, some spent at Derby Women's Centre. I also have experience in working alongside an NHS Consultant Psychiatrist in a local hospital, so have experience working with personality disorders and other mental health issues. I carry out rehabilitation work for a national addiction organisation and in counselling for employer assistance programs. I am experienced in working with Gender Dysphoria and supporting people through transition. I can help you build self esteem, deal with criticism and develop future ideas. My website shows client testimonials and progression to fruitful, satisfying lives. Qualifications - Nottingham University Advanced Person Centred Certificate in Counselling and 3 years formal training in Gestalt Psychotherapy. Now is the time to deal with the issues that hold you back.
