About me and my therapy practice

Life is messy and complicated. Sometimes it can be very overwhelming.

If this is how you have been feeling and are considering counselling, I would love to hear from you.

I am an Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist offering in-person or online counselling sessions.

Practice description

I offer sessions for adults and young people (aged 16-17).

I work with the past, present and future and am keen to learn about your experiences and what shapes you. You will be met with sincerity, compassion, curiousity and, occasionally, kind humour.

Sessions are led by you. Whatever it is you want to bring is your choice. I will work alongside you to help you understand yourself better, be curious about who you are and what you want, and take the time to listen. I will meet you with acceptance, sincerity and validation and hope that, in time, you can come to meet yourself in the same way.

Sessions are 50 minutes long, held weekly and can be conducted online (via Zoom) or in-person in my counselling room in south west Wiltshire (on-street parking and toilet facilities available).

I offer sessions on an open-ended basis.

I am trained in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy. This combines strands from Humanistic, Relational Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Most of my sessions are conducted in a person-centred style (a branch of Humanistic counselling) but my skills, experience and knowledge can also bring in helpful parts of the other theoretical backgrounds. I find this a helpful way of working because I can tweak the way we work together to suit you and the issues you are coming to counselling to address.

With young people, I will also use play therapy techniques and with all ages I enjoy making suggestions for and using creative techniques to enhance our work, if appropriate.

My first session

30-Minute Introductory calls - FREE

Fee payable thereafter.

In our first counselling session, I will spend some time getting to know you. I may ask you some brief questions about what has brought you to counselling, whether you have any goals in mind or I might need to find out more information about your physical health (in case of emergencies). 

If you are a young person (aged 16-17) I may also ask you about some of your interests, hobbies and whether you are still in education. A first session for a young person may also include a parent or carer so that, as part of the assessment, I can get a bigger picture of how you might be showing your emotions to your caregiver.
