About me and my therapy practice
Anxiety is normal. Yes, I just said that! Many of us grow up with the idea that anxious feelings are negative and to be avoided at all costs, yet struggling to push them away can make them feel even worse.
My approach uses Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), a therapy rooted in clinical research that is effective in treating a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, OCD, trauma and more. In a nutshell, it involves accepting that we can't always change what we think and feel, but we can choose how to respond to our thoughts and feelings differently, allowing us to focus on living our lives the way we want to.
I blend ACT with compassion-based, attachment and somatic (body-based) philosophies to provide a creative and practical approach to emotional distress. I believe that human connection is at the heart of successful therapy outcomes, and I aim for a rich and productive therapeutic relationship in which you feel safe, heard and able to move forward in your life.
Sessions last for 1 hour and are weekly or fortnightly. I offer sessions online via zoom, or over the phone. I believe that counselling should be as accessible as possible and try to reflect this in my concessionary rates, which are available to all.
My first session
I offer an initial 20 minute meeting free of charge, where we can chat further and decide how we would like to proceed. If we go on to work together, we will find a weekly or fortnightly slot that suits us both, although I can be flexible around shift work or Uni courses.
