About me and my therapy practice
As an integrative therapist, I am passionate about good mental health and believe that therapy is not an off-the-shelf solution, but a personal experience that allows you the time and space to truly understand yourself.
I work 1:1, either face to face or online, with adults, teenagers and younger children exploring issues that may leave you feeling anxious, affect your self-esteem, or just stopping you from living the life you want to live.
I strongly believe that therapy is not only for those times when we feel less than able but is useful at all times of our life. Working with issues that we have, however small they may appear, is important and helps us build the resilience we need to meet day-to-day challenges.
With a background working for a not-for-profit organisation dealing with all mental health concerns for children and adults and a charity specialising in complex trauma and survivors of domestic abuse, I am able to bring a wealth of experience to working with all clients.
My approach to counselling is based on person-centred therapy. Person-centred therapy relies on the therapeutic relationship between the counsellor and the client to facilitate growth and change. Using this as the core basis of therapy, other techniques will be integrated to offer a personal service for adults and young people.
In addition, I am a qualified Rewind Therapist. Rewind therapy is used for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, phobias and anxiety providing a technique that helps reduce or remove PTSD symptoms quickly without having to talk about the traumatic incident.
For young people struggling with anxiety, bullying, bereavement/loss, exam stress or overwhelming feelings, knowing someone is there to talk to without fear of judgement and in confidentiality, can be all the help they require. Sometimes more guidance may be needed, but when this is carried out in a safe and supportive environment, we can see real positive change occur
My first session
I strongly believe that finding the right therapist for you is essential to the success of your therapy. So I offer a free 30-minute telephone consultation, to allow us a chance to decide how we can work together. After that, we will agree a suitable time to meet , either face to face or on-line and sessions will last 50 minutes.
