About me and my therapy practice

 As an experienced integrative counsellor, I understand the importance of adapting my approach to fit the needs of the individual, respecting their uniqueness and diversity. I believe everyone has the potential for growth given the right conditions and are their own best expert. Part of my role as a therapist is to provide you with a warm and confidential space without judgement, where you can begin to explore some of your issues and untangle thoughts and feelings.

I work both short term and long term, working with both adults and young people. I have extensive experience of working with children and adolescents in a variety of settings where I have supported them with issues such as self harm, anxiety, depression and disordered eating. Having worked long term within a generic counselling setting, I have gained experience in a range of different areas, particularly trauma, loss and grief and childhood/ family related issues.

I believe my role as the therapist is to support you to feel empowered again, allowing you to build in confidence and to feel that there are the resources available to you to function for the future.

Practice description

Our building is a quiet, safe and welcoming environment, offering you the space you need to explore thoughts and feelings.

My first session

At our first session we will assess your needs and decide together on how best we can help you. Each session will usually take place once a week and last for 50 minutes.

We will decide with you on our initial meeting how long our sessions will last. Some find they only need short term counselling, others find longer term support is necessary. This is very much based on the individual’s needs.
