About me and my therapy practice

I am a fully qualified, BACP registered (MBACP) person-centered therapist. I work to a Humanistic model which has Person Centred at its core and integrates CBT and Gestalt therapy.

I offer face-to-face, online and telephone sessions working with adults, children and young people for a range of issues including anxiety, stress, including work related issues, low mood & depression, loss, anger, grief, self-harm, low self-esteem and school related issues. 

Practice description

I aim to provide a safe, supportive and non-judgemental space; a relationship for healing, growth and developing new insight.

Counselling is a journey and can often feel scary, sometimes we can feel lost or unsure of where to go next. I will not give advice or tell you what to do, I will support you in understanding how you make sense of yourself in your world so that you can make your own decisions. As a person-centred therapist I believe that you have the resources within yourself to make positive changes in your life. 

I have experience working in schools with children and young people with a range of issues, some clients are happy to sit and talk while others prefer a more creative approach this is also true with adults.

With this,  no matter what age my clients are I work with them as an individual and in a way they are comfortable as I believe there is no 'one size fits all' in therapy. 

My first session

The first session is really about me getting to know you and finding out a little more about your current struggles and looking at how therapy could benefit you. 

It is also an opportunity for you to decide if you feel we could work together, as this is ultimately your decision. 

Your first session is 1 Hour which gives us a little more time and for you to ask any questions you may have. All future sessions will be 50 Minutes.
