About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified counsellor and registered member of the BACP. This means that I work ethically, I am self-aware and that you can trust that I will work within my limits to help you.

I work in a Person-Centred approach to counselling; I think that you are the expert of your own life and so I will not diagnose or try to 'fix' your problems. Instead, our 50 minute sessions will explore your experiences and feelings to try and understand them better and make sense of what is going on for you.

Working this way means that I do not specialise in specific topics or issues; I work holistically with a person rather than a 'problem' so that you are the focus. You might have a particular issue you want to bring to our sessions or maybe you just know that you don't feel your self, you don't feel O.K or are vulnerable or anxious; we can figure it out together.

The relationship between you and I is important and will be different to that you have with family and friends who often try to help by listening to respond and rescue you rather than hearing and being with you in the moment. I offer a safe and empathic space where I will not judge you, going at your own pace. 

Practice description

Most of my sessions take place online using Zoom: an encrypted video calling app which is simple to download and use. A lot of people prefer working this way or having telephone sessions as it is more convenient, flexible and affordable. This has proved such a valuable way of working in the current crisis because it means that we can keep working as usual. Unlike other counsellors I have not had to try and adapt what I can offer, I am confident in working this way.

I am not currently working face-to-face but if this is your preferred way of counselling you can get in touch to stay updated with when I plan to offer these sessions again. I have a counselling room in an agency located in Carrington, which is close to the city centre, has parking available and is served by bus routes.

You can call or message me if you would like to ask any questions or to book in a session with me; I work with clients across the U.K and Europe.

Working remotely means that I can offer more affordable sessions and that I can work with people in different cities where counselling rates are usually much higher.

My first session

Our first session gives us the space to check out whether we think we are a good fit to work together. The connection between us is important and here you can see if I am someone you feel comfortable to talk to and want to share your experiences with.

This might be the first time that you have worked with a counsellor and this session will give you a better understanding of what counselling is and to see if you think it could help.

If you have worked with a counsellor before, your past experiences might inform you of what you are looking for now and this session is an opportunity to see if what I can offer matches with your expectations.

We will talk about what brings you to counselling and what you think you want to focus on. This is something that can change too as we continue our work together. Some counsellors work with specific issues, I work holistically with you as a person instead. This means we agree there is flexibility in our work; as your experiences change, so does what we focus on.

I hope that in the first session you see that I am here to try and understand your experiences, thoughts and emotions with you to help you feel better; I am not trying to impose myself as an expert, we are more equals in this experience together.

Confidentiality, availability and commitment will also be a part of our first session so that our expectations of each other are transparent.

In this first session we might both agree to work together and move forward but it is O.K to take some time and think about it before we get back in touch. There is no pressure in our sessions, I trust your decisions.

I do not take notes in my sessions apart from sometimes in the first.

There may be some information you would like before booking a session, you can call or email me with any questions and we can take it from there.
