About me and my therapy practice

Life inevitably brings challenges and changes that can be intensely painful and confusing, leaving us with a sense of loss and isolation. I offer the opportunity to explore these with you in a warm, non-judgmental environment, whether this is face to face, on the phone or by video link.

As an integrative counsellor I draw on a number of different approaches or techniques depending on the person I'm working with. I believe we are unique individuals, shaped by our upbringing and experiences, and with the appropriate support and encouragement we have the ability to make changes in our lives so that we can enter the future with a different perspective.

Practice description

I work from home, in a peaceful wooden chalet in the countryside, with easy access and spacious parking. Many clients comment on the benefit they feel from the natural surroundings.

My first session

I believe it is important that clients feel sufficiently comfortable with the physical environment and the personal working relationship so that they have the confidence  to embark on the challenging but hopefully rewarding counselling process. The first session is an informal assessment with the opportunity to understand a little more about my way of working and what to expect in future sessions.
