About me and my therapy practice

Welcome.  I have worked in counselling in many different environments since qualification in 2011 and understand that it can be very hard to make that first step towards seeking help. I aim to be as welcoming and empathetic as possible, seeking to understand issues from your perspective. I believe in the unique qualities of every person and feel privileged to be invited in to somebody else’s life and experience. It can take time to establish a trusting relationship with someone which is why it is important to have a contract which we will discuss in our first session.

Working online means that I can work with people from all over the UK. It can also be a way of providing what you need at the time: sitting in your own safe space or with your favourite blanket or pet.  

I offer EMDR therapy which can be immensely helpful for those who have experienced traumatic events.  When we meet initially we will discuss the different treatment options for you and what you might be looking for.  

I meet people from all backgrounds with varying issues which they want to address.  I have experience of working with trauma, depression, anxiety, chronic illness, many different forms of abuse (including emotional, sexual and physical); bereavement – both before and after death and also other forms of loss. I also work with clients who are at a turning point in their lives and need to stop and re-assess. 

I am ADHD informed, working with many clients with different forms of neurodiversity; I am welcoming and flexible enabling therapy to be effective for everyone.

I am registered with WPA and other health insurance providers who can help towards the costs of personal therapy.

Practice description

My approach to my work is integrative and informed by you in that I refer to different models and theories adapting the work and activities to the needs of my clients. I seek to create a safe environment where you will feel comfortable to explore a variety of issues. As an Accredited Member of the BACP I work within its Ethical Framework referring to its guidelines as and when necessary and receiving regular supervision.

Since my initial qualification in 2011 I have provided counselling for a variety of organisations including IAPT, those in vulnerable housing, hospices, GP referrals, Sheffield University and my own private practice.

I work face to face and online, offering a variety of modalities to suit my clients needs best.  I offer walk and talk therapy which can be of great benefit using the outdoor environment and exercise to help access and process feelings and emotions.  Sessions can take place in Sheffield or the Peak Park.

EMDR Therapy offers an effective and opportunity to work with many different types of trauma, we will discuss what is best for you.

My first session

In the first session I will take notes and ask you some questions about your history and why you are seeking counselling now.  It may take a full  hour instead of the usual 50 minute session.  We will discuss the contract (which I will have sent to you via email) and the GDPR agreement.  It is your opportunity to explore what you might expect from counselling and ask any questions you may have.  I look forward to meeting you.
