About me and my therapy practice
Life can throw up many challenges and how we deal with them can have an impact on our emotional wellbeing. Sometimes talking to those close to us may not be enough or even be helpful to us.
Talking therapy can help us to work through our challenges such as grief, loss, anger and guilt. Making a choice to come into counselling can feel a little daunting and as a counsellor, I understand that. I aim to build a warm, authentic and trusting relationship with the clients I work with and cultivate an environment of unconditional acceptance and non-judgement.
I describe my approach to therapy as person-centred, this means that if you come and see me, we will work together to identify, understand and explore the challenges in your life as you see them, and find solutions that make sense to you. I am flexible in my approach and I am happy to work with clients for as long as they find helpful.
As part of my work, I offer expressive arts therapy, which can be a powerful way of exploring and communicating thoughts and feelings that were not previously available to you by simply thinking or talking about them.
I also offer walk and talk therapy in Lytham St Anne’s. Walk and talk therapy combines talking therapy, being outdoors in nature and gentle physical exercise. All three interventions are proven to help with mental health issues such as depression and anxiety. We walk side by side at a pace that is set by you, stopping for breaks to sit down and reflect as and when you need.
