About me and my therapy practice
I am a senior accredited counsellor and psychotherapist, supervisor, and counselling trainer with many years of experience in all areas.
Counselling and Psychotherapy can be helpful at many times in our lives, whether we are dealing with major life changes, feeling mentally or emotionally unwell, struggling with aspects of our personality, or just feeling dissatisfied with life and ourselves. As a counsellor I am trained to listen empathically and non-judgmentally and to assist you in finding the answers and solutions to whatever is troubling you within a confidential and ethical setting. However, counselling and psychotherapy can also be used to help us understand who we are, why we are as we are and to develop more fully into the person we have the potential to be and therefore does not just have to be for the times we are struggling in life. Counselling and psychotherapy can help people discuss their problems honestly and openly and in so doing, begin to understand how they can move through those problems and towards fulfilling their potential in all areas of their life. There are many models of counselling and psychotherapy and I work integratively with Person Centred Theory and the transpersonal at the core of my practice. This puts the client at the centre of the process, and recognises that they are the expert on themselves and empowers them to find their own answers. However, I also have training and experience in working in other theoretical models. As a result I am able to include other ways of working and to work in a way that is most appropriate for each individual client and their particular issues.
Because of my experience with many aspects of spirituality and spiritual practice I am also able to offer a deep spiritual aspect to the work, which can enrich and deepen the experience of counselling and psychotherapy. I work with individuals both long and short term.
My first session
First sessions are free and last 30 - 45 minutes. This is an opportunity for us to meet and discuss what it is you need from therapy, and to see whether I am someone you feel you can work with and for me to assess whether your needs are something I feel I can meet. It is also an opportunity to talk through the working contract and take personal information should you be interested in moving forward in working with me.
