About me and my therapy practice

Welcome. Therapy is dedicated time, set aside by you and the therapist, to think about your needs and what has brought you to therapy. It might involve thinking about life events, both past and present. If you suffer from low self esteem, therapy can empower you by helping you to both understand and to look after yourself better. It can help you to re-evaluate things and turn perceived problems into personal growth. You may want to set yourself specific personal goals to achieve. In this instance I will work with you to identify your particular needs and consider what you might like to change. Alternatively, if you have suffered a loss or trauma, I can help you to process events, to help you move towards acceptance and to allow you time and space to express how you truly feel. Whatever you want to achieve, I can offer a safe and confidential environment for you to discuss your thoughts, feelings & behaviours. Looking after you is my priority.

Practice description

As an experienced therapist I have worked in a number of settings. Alongside my private practice, I work in a Buckinghamshire Secondary School supporting young people aged 11 and upwards. I offer EAP counselling, enabling employers to look after the mental health needs of their employees.  I am also a specialist counsellor supporting victims of crime. I have previously worked in an Oxfordshire Comprehensive School and offered specialist support for bereaved individuals on behalf of Cruse Bereavement Care. In the past I have worked as part of a Wellbeing Group providing advice to a Local Authority.  What matters is that I recognise that as individuals we are different and have different needs. Your wellbeing matters to me, you are important, and you are at the heart of the work.

As an Integrative therapist I am able to draw on more than one type of approach in order to work in the best interests of my clients. I never fail to be amazed and inspired by the human condition and what makes us think and act the way we do. My goal as a therapist is to help the individual (or couple) find their own clarity, seek their own path.

I offer on line and telephone appointments.  I also see clients face to face at a local surgery.

My first session

During the first session I will ask the client(s) to complete an assessment. This helps me to understand the full picture.  It also enables the client to get to know me, understand how I work and to ask any questions that they might have.  In order for therapy to be successful it is essential that we are able to build a good working relationship and that the client feels comfortable in the setting and working with me.

Sessions are normally weekly and are reviewed at agreed points.

However, I do offer single session appointments at a charge of £60 per hour.  Sometimes this is useful where a client is in crisis and needs to be seen quickly.  Other people may have had counselling before and feel they would like a single session to talk through a pressing matter in the presence of an objective third party.

What is key for me is identifying the clients needs and working in a way which helps them best, and within an appropriate timeframe.
