About me and my therapy practice
Please note that during the coronavirus pandemic I am offering phone and online video-call counselling to support you with whatever you're going through, whether that's existing problems or new challenges which have arisen due to the current situation. I am also currently offering outdoor counselling sessions (Eco-therapy) face-to-face.
I have a warm, compassionate approach and work holistically - meaning I include your mind, feelings, body and spirit (whatever that might mean to you). I'm also trained in working with trauma and the nervous system in safe, effective ways.
I am BACP Accredited and work with both adults and young people (aged 11+), offering a range of therapeutic approaches, which means I can find the most effective ways of working with you / your child as an individual.
In addition I offer Creative Therapies and Eco-therapy (counselling outdoors). please see my website for more details.
I create a safe, accepting space where you can share whatever is concerning you. As well as exploring your difficulties, we'll look at what supports and nurtures you.
I'm understanding, authentic, non-judgemental and sensitive to differences in ethnicity, culture, age, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, ability and gender.
I offer a free, no-obligation phone call (of up to 30 minutes) to discuss your needs and all information you share with me is confidential.
I have over 11 years experience and offer both short term (6-10 sessions) and longer-term therapy. As well as seeing private clients, I have worked as a counsellor in GP surgeries, mental health projects and with charities such as the Children's Society.
I've counselled adults and young people from all walks of life, with many different issues, including: anxiety, panic attacks, depression, low confidence / self-esteem, relationship problems, loss, bereavement, family problems, domestic violence, rape, sexual abuse, trauma, PTSD, fertility issues, sexuality and gender identity, parenting issues, anger, work stress, bullying, chronic illness (e.g. CFS and Fibromyalgia), climate change grief/ anxiety and spiritual crisis.
My first session
What happens in an initial session?
The introductory session enables you to tell me about yourself and whatever is concerning you and I'll ask some background questions so I can get a fuller picture of your life. We can also explore what you'd like to get out of counselling and you can decide whether I'm the right counsellor for you.
