About me and my therapy practice

I am an integrative counsellor and supervisor. My core training includes applications from major modalities -  Cognitive - Behavioural, Humanistic and Psychodynamic schools. I qualified in 2010 and over the years I have developed several specialisms including bereavement/loss, Spirituality, end of life/terminal illness support and harmful sexual behaviour in children and young people. I have worked in fostering for 7 years as an independent therapist; and for over ten years with children who have been fostered. I am currently training as a child & adolescent psychotherapist. In my private practice, I see self-referred and EAP adult clients presenting with  a wide range of issues including relationship difficulties, spirituality, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, cultural identity, and sexual abuse to name a few. I am warm and empathic in my approach to my work, and I aim to provide an environment in which you feel safe to explore your experience of being in the world. 

My first session

My first session is an assessment session; we discuss your presenting issue and what you hope for from our work together. I take a detailed history of the issues you would like to work on, which includes a risk assessment. 

This session is also a chemistry session - we can decide if we feel we are a good match and can work together.
