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.
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 as it is more convenient, flexible and affordable. I also have a 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.
