About me and my therapy practice

I am a Registered Psychiatric Nurse and Registered General Nurse, specialising in Adult mental health over many years. This has provided me with an extensive professional portfolio working with, and understanding psychiatric disorders, mental ill health and distress, and their associated nuances. General Nursing has given me insight into how physical health conditions affect daily living, and impact mental health.  As a therapist I work with a person centred, creative and flexible approach. I work in an integrative way using your personal resources, strengths, qualities, incorporating self-compassion, relaxation and mindfulness. I also incorporate any aspects you wish to bring to the session, from Reiki to spirituality. I am trained in  Diversity and Equity and maintain an interest in cultural competency. 

Practice description

I provide sessions remotely by telephone or video conferencing eg Zoom, What's App, and also face to face.

My first session

During the first session we will agree on a counselling contract, looking at  areas of payment, confidentiality and when this may be breached, holidays, etc. We will also start the assessment process so I get an understanding of your problem(s), goals you may wish to explore, or how you wish to use the sessions.
