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. I know that talking helps, and that working with someone who we can trust and who will meet us with kindness and acceptance of who we are and what we bring, can make all the difference.
I am an experienced counsellor. I can offer you a safe and confidential space where you can talk about what is troubling you and will listen without judgment and help bring a deeper understanding to what is concerning you. My approach is founded on the principle that we all have the potential to live a rich and fulfilling life and is integrative, drawing on a range of theoretical models and ways of working which can adapt to meet the clients needs and preferred ways of working. The holistic context in which I work 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 began my work as a counsellor after many years of working in education and have worked as a counsellor in a local mental health charity and established my own private practice in 2018. I have an MA in Psychosynthesis Psychology, a PG Diploma in Counselling and am in regular supervision. I am currently engaged in further professional training towards an Advanced Diploma in Psychosynthesis Psychotherapy. I am BACP Registered and Accredited.
I work from a quiet room in Waterbeach which has frequent rail services from Ely and Cambridge and lies close to the A10 and A14. There is excellent parking outside. I welcome any questions that you may have.
I work with individual clients face to face.
I currently work both online and in person. I follow the current Covid guidance regarding safe working practice.
My first session
Our first session provides us with an hour in which we can meet each other for the first time. It is an opportunity 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 need and know how I might be able to help you. There is a charge for this session however there is no obligation to continue after this point
In this first session I will give you space to tell me something about yourself, to let me know what brings you to counselling at this time in your life and an opportunity for you to ask me any questions that you may have. I will tell you more about how I work and what this might mean for us if we move forwards together.
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.
