About me and my therapy practice

I work with both adults, young people and children in the St Ives area and offer a warm, non-judgemental space in which you can explore your difficult thoughts and feelings. I use an integrative approach which means I use a variety of theories to support the basis of my counselling. It really depends on you, the client, and what you may need. 

Day time and evening appointments are available.


Practice description

My counselling approach means that we will often look back at what has happened in our lives that may have been difficult or painful. Coming to terms with trauma, grief and loss or other life events takes time and it can be helpful to process and understand what has happened. Sometimes we need to explore how patterns in our way of thinking and behaviour become established. Understanding this can help us make changes and give us hope for a different kind of future. 

I sometimes use creative ways of exploring these issues - depending on whether you feel comfortable in doing so. 

My first session

When you visit for your first session, I will talk to you about confidentiality which is key in counselling - you need to be able to trust that I will 'hold' what you are saying carefully and respectfully. 

I will ask for some background information - basic information and some family details. It will also be important that you are able to say something about how you are thinking and feeling right now so that you have space to start opening up and so that I can begin to understand what you are experiencing.
