About me and my therapy practice
I can provide a safe, confidential, and non-judgemental space. My aim is to gain an understanding of any difficulties you may be experiencing and to work together with you, to develop further insight, and to make any changes that you would like to make.
I am a predominantly Person-centred counsellor and believe that we are equal in the counselling relationship. I am client led and work at a pace that feels comfortable for you. I can also work with you using an assimilative integrative approach, whereby I can incorporate techniques and interventions from other therapeutic approaches to meet your individual needs.
I began counselling training in 2013 and gained my counselling qualification in 2017. I believe that continued professional development is important and I completed my MSc in counselling with distinction in 2020.
I gained experience in online and telephone counselling during my time as a counsellor for a national counselling service from 2014-16 and have since completed further certified telephone and online training.
I have previously been a counsellor for a service offering support to women, and for an addiction service, and for a children’s hospice service. I currently work in private practice, and for a charity specialising in therapeutic services for adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse.
Concessionary rates are available for counselling students, please contact me for further information.
My first session
Our first session provides us with an opportunity to meet one another, and for you to gain a sense of whether you feel comfortable talking with me.
I will provide you with an explanation of what I can offer you and answer any questions that you may have, to allow you to make an informed decision about whether you would like to work with me after the first session.
My aim will be to gain an understanding of you and what you are experiencing, and what you would like to gain from counselling, so that we can establish how we can meet your individual needs.
