About me and my therapy practice
My background is in person centred counselling however I am an integrative counsellor, working holistically pulling on other modalities to support growth and change. This may include, mindfulness, meditation or somatic therapies. I believe in the body mind connection, the way we feel influences the way we think and visa versa.
I have 23 years experience of working in a local authority setting, supporting vulnerable young people and their families. This alongside managing a team within a large organisation provides me with wealth of skills and experience that support my practice.
I have experience of working with Cruse Bereavement Care working with bereavement and loss in adults, Service 6, working with adolescents experiencing anxiety, depression, sexuality and identity issues and loss and Relate working with relationship issues as well as my own private practice, working with adults and young people.
Recognising that you are struggling and may need support is the first step towards change. It can be a scary and lonely place when we are faced with challenges and it can be difficult to open up to someone about what you may be experiencing.
I will offer a safe, confidential environment to enable you to talk through whatever difficulties you may be experiencing. This may be something that is happening for you right now or may be something from you past that is unresolved. I will listen, value your uniqueness and be respectful of your feelings. I will work alongside you to explore your individual experience from your perspective and at your pace, enabling you to find your own resolution to the problems you may be facing.
As well as offering online and telephone counselling I offer walk and talk therapy with clients. This can be a rewarding experience offering an ever changing therapeutic environment.
My first session
Once you have made the decision to access counselling finding the right therapist is an important part of the process. I believe that what makes therapy effective is the relationship that is built up between the counsellor and the client, so I offer a 30 minute free online or phone consultation to see whether we would be able to work together and to answer any questions that you may have.
