About me and my therapy practice

My specialities include helping with low self-esteem, anxiety, depression and finding a way through those dark times. I will listen with care and warmth. We can work at whatever pace you choose and feel comfortable with. This is about providing a unique space just for you. You can unravel your feelings and work out how you would like to move forward in a direction right for you. I have a flexible approach that puts your needs at the centre of our work together.

I take great care to work professionally, with sincere respect for you. I provide a safe space for you to talk about your life circumstances and accompanying feelings. Confidentiality is a priority, as is my commitment to empowering you to be your best version of yourself.

Currently, I am working online using Zoom (a secure video platform) which means you can benefit from being in the comfort of your own home (or perhaps car) for our sessions. Zoom is user friendly, works on phones, laptops and tablets and is encrypted end to end.  Alternatively, you may prefer using a telephone. I also offer email therapy using ProtonMail which is highly secure and confidential (and also free to use). Some people may prefer email therapy as the slower pace allows for reflection and considered responses, it also enables you to write at a time and placethat suits you.

In contrast to using tech for our sessions, I have limited availability for outdoor therapy sessions. Outdoor therapy provides an alternative to the more traditional therapy session and benefits from gentle walking or sitting in nature to stimulate endorphins and reduce anxiety.

It can be daunting making that first step to take control of your situation, but here you are doing that already. Let’s build on this together.
