About me and my therapy practice

Welcome!  If you're here, it is likely that you are looking for someone to talk to ;  somebody that you can trust to  help you work through issues that are troubling you and who you sense will understand.  The  first step can sometimes be the hardest.  When  we are struggling with life , it can often be difficult to reach out,   to know where to start , or to  imagine that anyone  might understand our perspective. 

I know that talking helps, and that working with someone who we can trust and who  will meet us with kindness, can make all the difference. I am an experienced  counsellor based in  the North of Cambridge. My approach is founded on the principle that we all have the potential to live a rich and fulfilling life. I offer a safe and  confidential  space where you can talk about what is troubling you. I will listen without judgment or ridicule and help you to bring a deeper understanding to what is concerning you.  

Many of my clients come because they   are going through a time of great change or upheaval, or have experienced the breakdown of a relationship or a loss,  or finding that life is a struggle.  I work from a holistic context which sees problems not just as difficulties to be overcome, but as part of a process which may contain a message or call from a deeper part of ourselves that is longing for change. I will listen deeply to what you bring and support you to find your way through and discover what you need.  

I work from a quiet room in Waterbeach village which has frequent rail services from Ely and Cambridge and lies close to the A10 and A14. I have an MA in Psychosynthesis Psychology, a PG Diploma in Counselling  and in regular supervision. I am BACP Registered.  I welcome any questions that you may have. 

Practice description

I work with individual clients  face to face. 

I currently work both online and in person following the current Covid guidance  regarding safe working practice. 

My first session

Our first session gives us an hour  to  meet each other for the first time, without any obligation to continue. It is a time for you to find out how I work and whether you  feel that I am the right person for you,  and for me to get a sense of what you are looking for.  

I will give you space  to tell me  something  about yourself and  let me know what brings you to counselling at this time in your life and there  will be  opportunity for you to ask me any questions that you may have. 

At the end of our time together we will think about what might happen next, and if you decide to take the work  forward make a regular time and day to meet.
