About me and my therapy practice

Do you feel stuck in an unhealthy place in your life? 

Are you struggling at the moment & not reaching your full potential?

If so, counselling with myself will help you have greater peace of mind & enhanced wellbeing. Your sense of meaning & direction in life will be heightened. Your relationship will be more positive with yourself and those that are important to you.

I believe that the most vital relationship we have is the one with ourselves, which is why I feel passionate about helping individuals find their sense of self, which is often lost in the processes of life. I believe with effective counselling, we can unlock your potential and you can achieve the life you want to live. I have supported individuals who have experienced loss, relationship issues, emotional challenges, identity concerns, self-harm, low self-esteem, anxiety disorders & depression.

Practice description

How I work as a counsellor?

I create a collaborative space, to help unravel your personal journey & work towards goals to enhance well-being. I will empower you to develop life skills to overcome obstacles, for ex., assertiveness training . We will work together to find resolutions to core issues and personal struggles. 

For over ten years I have been working as a counsellor, with individuals, families and young people in both private practices, a family health practice and as a school and college counsellor.

I strive to keep informed of the latest counselling methods and practices through seeking professional development opportunities. I have a Masters Degree in counselling and have developed my counselling practice by being certified in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy and Motivational Interviewing, which are all evidence based psychologies. I take a person-centred approach, to work collaboratively with the client to enable them to lead the agenda and pace of the counselling sessions.

I am registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and therefore subscribe to the Ethical Framework laid down by the BACP. I maintain Indemnity coverage, receive regular Clinical Supervision, attend CPD and adhere to GDPR regulations.

My first session

In the first session, we will be working together to explore your core concerns and start to unravel some of your life events. By the end of the first session, we will have created starting goals to work on together. There may be assessments to complete in the first session, to help us gather further information to formulate our direction in the sessions together.
