About me and my therapy practice
There are times when we can all feel alone with a problem. If you are experiencing depression, anxiety or feel conflicted or distressed, it can be very helpful to have someone to talk to. I offer a safe space to explore your thoughts and feelings. As a counsellor I will work with you to increase your self awareness and insight. The counselling relationship which I offer is warmly accepting of you as you are. Before undertaking counselling training and studying for a BA Hons in Integrative -Relational Counselling I worked for over 20 years as a palliative care nurse offering nursing and psychological care to patients and families in a hospice. Through my experience as a nurse I learnt the importance of kindness and openness and willingness to be alongside people suffering great distress. It was a desire to give space to this way of working and to develop and deepen my skills that drew me towards training as a Counsellor.
My approach is person centered and Integrative, this means that in my work I draw on the insights and understanding from psychodynamic and humanistic theoretical backgrounds. I believe that every person given the right conditions can grow, overcome difficulties and live more fully. I offer a safe confidential space where you will be able to talk and be listened to with unconditional acceptance. I work in an open ended way and would see you for a 50 min session weekly, or for a fixed time for example six or ten sessions if we agreed on this together. I abide by the BACP code of ethics and my work is supervised by a senior practitoiner.
