About me and my therapy practice
I am unavailable for new enquiries until 16/09/2019
I offer a safe, private non–judgemental space to listen and collaboratively examine problems, relationships and emotional issues that may trouble young people and adults such as anxiety, low mood and the emotional aftermath of difficult experiences.
It sometimes takes time and always takes courage to seek help, so I offer a brief introductory chat 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.
I work with a wide range of emotional issues and mental health conditions and with people of all ages. I have particular experience in working with survivors of trauma including abuse, harmful relationships and with ‘teenage issues’ including anxiety, anger, depression, relationship problems, self-esteem, self-harm and bullying.
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 offer group and individual clinical supervision for counsellors in training and experienced therapists. Student therapy and supervision rates are available for counsellors in training.
