About me and my therapy practice

I started my professional career as a general registered nurse yet have found my calling in psycho-therapeutic counselling. I have a private practice and have also spent the last 2 years working on a part-time voluntary basis with a local counselling service. My main modality or training has been in Transactional Analysis (TA) which you may want to look up or speak to me about before making an initial appointment. TA has a lot of schools within it and my approach is influenced by most of them.

My approach includes the latest findings from Interpersonal Neurobiology and Mindfulness which have a vast body of research to support their efficacy. Despite my passion for wholesome science I am passionate about people becoming who and what they truly are - to be able to become truly happy and express their potential.

Once we have agreed to work together (we may have 2 or 3 sessions to explore and decide) I am happy to work with you on a short-term or longer-term basis depending on what you want to achieve. I will respond to you and your needs and goals for therapy. My approach is one that will help you resolve your here-and-now difficulty as well as help you to become your own therapist for moving forward with your life. The work we do is done together - so when you choose to work with me you you will be an active participant in your own recovery.

If you would like to talk with me before making an initial appointment please do call me. If I am unable to take your call I will call you back. I have weekday appointment slots with only a few evening appointments available yet do have some availability on a Monday & Thursday evening. This could change so please do ask.
