Availability

I am able to offer face to face counselling on Sundays (all day) and Mondays from 3:50 pm.

I can be more flexible for online sessions; although my days off are Friday and Saturday.

About me and my therapy practice

I was trained in Person-Centred counselling, which forms the bedrock of my approach. I hold true to the three core conditions of Person-Centred therapy: empathy, congruence and unconditional positive regard. I believe in the client as the expert on their own life and have found that encouragement, validation and affirmation of their own sense of self can work wonders.

As my experience has broadened, I have learned to adapt my practice to include elements of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy. The way I work is entirely predicated on the needs of my client. I enjoy training and passing on new learning and insights, so psycho-education has become another useful element in therapy.  My aim is to help the client reach a place of self-confidence and internal resource so that they are able to be their own counsellor.

Practice description

I offer warmth, sensitivity, integrity and acceptance to my clients. The client's best interests are at the heart of the counselling and will guide how we work together.

I have had considerable success helping clients with a wide range of issues; including depression, anxiety, trauma, bereavement and relationship problems. I have great experience working with diversity. I work in an open, collaborative, professional way; abiding by the BACP's Ethical Framework (code of conduct).  Both brief and long - term counselling are available.

Face to face and online counselling available (Skype, Zoom, Whatsapp video call).
