About me and my therapy practice
Experienced and non-judgemental, I provide a confidential therapeutic setting where, with support and understanding, clients can feel able to talk about the things that trouble them. My role is to listen carefully and empathetically. To assist my clients begin to explore feelings, thoughts and behaviours within the context of their life experiences so that they are able to make sense of them. In this way, clients begin to identify and make sense of patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving, that are problematic and that, with the benefit of understanding can change.
I have extensive experience working as a Counsellor / Psychotherapist in the private and public sectors with individuals, families and young people experiencing emerging and complex mental ill health. Alongside issues such as anxiety, depression, identity, self belief / esteem, stress management and adjusting to life changes, I have trained to work with complex developmental and event specific trauma. I have developed a particular interest in birth trauma and early child illness that can impact in behavioural difficulties and family stress.
My approach is grounded in an understanding that early relationship and life experiences can and do influence inner confidence and the way we approach life and manage stress. Therapy provides an opportunity to revisit and re learn a way being in the world that allows us to overcome internal struggles and realise potentials for personal and professional wellbeing.
I offer concessions for student counsellors.
