About me and my therapy practice
I offer a safe, private non–judgemental space to listen and collaboratively explore problems, relationships and the emotional impact of difficult experiences so that you can feel more positive, resourceful and find ways of moving forward.
I am an experienced therapist and work with a broad range of mental health concerns including complex conditions and common issues such as anxiety and low mood. I work with young people aged 13 and above and with adults of all ages. I have particular experience in working with survivors of trauma including abuse, harmful relationships and with ‘teenage issues’ such as anxiety, anger, depression, peer relationship problems, self-esteem, self-harm and bullying.
It sometimes takes time and always takes courage to seek help, so I offer a an introductory meeting which is free of charge and without obligation over the phone or in person to anyone who would like some support but needs to find out a little more.
For issues that need exploring in depth or are complex, I offer long term therapy. I also work on a short term basis and include approaches such as solution-focused brief therapy and CBT tools where there are specific issue to examine or time is more limited.
Some people find that alternatives to talking therapy can be helpful for approaching problems or gaining insight so as well as listening skills, I can introduce creative or written resources, Mindfulness and relaxation techniques.
What is most important is finding a way of working that best suits you and one where you feel comfortable and safe.
I also offer group and individual clinical supervision for counsellors in training and experienced therapists. Student therapy and supervision rates are available for counsellors in training.
