About me and my therapy practice
My practice is located within walking distance of Stafford town centre. I offer a professional, safe, supportive and confidential space to those who wish to work through any problematic issues they may be experiencing.
I have developed a style that adapts to client need and when we meet for the first time I will be interested in knowing why now, what you hope to achieve in therapy and how we might work together.
For example, it may be you just need someone to listen without judgement, or you might be looking for some guidance on how to make some positive changes to improve your well-being but are unsure how.
This first step takes courage and is the start of you trying to move forward with your life. Sometimes it is hard to do this on your own and that's where counselling can help make sense of what you are going through.
I started out in the industry in 1996 as a volunteer for Victim Support, supporting victims of crime.
I have gained experience in the voluntary sector for the following agencies: EMERGE (working with adult survivors of abuse as children); The Dove Service; The Stafford and District Bereavement and Loss Support Service (working with individuals struggling with bereavement, loss and long term illness and Women’s Aid (counselling women survivors of domestic violence).
Before embarking on private practice, I worked for 5 years in a service that received referrals from GP practices in the area. I worked in a therapist role and helped people referred for moderate to severe presentations of Depression and Anxiety.
As a result of my experiences over the years, I am competent working with presentations of: anxiety, stress, depression, abuse, panic, bereavement, loss, long term illness, low self esteem, trauma, termination, miscarriage and problematic relationship issues.
