About me and my therapy practice

Life’s journey can be difficult at times. When we face obstacles or challenges in our lives it can prevent us moving forward and enjoying life. Obstacles may include bereavement or loss, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, low self-esteem, anger or learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, and autism. Being able to talk about these challenges in a confidential, non-judgemental, and supportive environment can be a step in the right direction. Counselling can help unlock feelings, explore experiences and help to gain a better personal understanding of the right path for yourself.  I am a qualified counsellor working with people of various ages, including children and young people and adults, experiencing difficulties in their lives. A Registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). My background is of 17 years in Human Resource and a qualified counsellor practitioner since 2015. My counselling approach puts the client first and integrates the most appropriate counselling model for the person. This counselling approach incorporates the main recognised counselling models such as person-centred, brief solution focused therapy, transactional analysis, psychoanalysis and CBT, matching the counselling model to the client not the other way around. I believe this helps people move forward more effectively. My first session is a getting to know you opportunity. At this session we will discuss the goals of your therapy and explore the best approach for you. It is also an opportunity for you to find out if I’m the right person to help. Throughout the counselling sessions we will regularly review your requirements to ensure that we are meeting your personal goal for therapy.
