About me and my therapy practice

Now is the time for you to find your voice, your peace, and your resilience.

I am passionate about empowering you to recognise your own uniqueness and to increase your assertiveness to have the life and relationships you want.

Unfortunately, sometimes a life experience can have a negative impact on us. Being the adaptive species that we are, we create ways to tolerate these difficult times. These adaptations do a wonderful job in helping us survive, but unfortunately as time passes, we can grow out of these suits of armour and eventually instead of helping, they can hinder us.

Talking to loved ones can be hard. Sometimes they just don't get it. They don't understand the anxiety, the low mood, the anger or the overwhelm. They don't understand why we have low self-esteem and confidence. They can go on to minimise the difficulties that we experience in day to life. This can cause us to worry that we're overreacting and being too sensitive.

However, this is where I can help you, as a therapeutic relationship isn't like any other relationship.

I'm comfortable in exploring what makes you, uniquely you. The positive, the negative and those that you’re not too sure about. All of you is welcome, even those feelings  you may feel uneasy about. We can look at the different parts of your armour and see which parts work well and which parts need upgrading or even getting rid of altogether.

I provide peace and gentle curiosity. I hope to help you shine a light within your shadow so that you get to know and appreciate all aspects of yourself, even the parts of you that are currently making you feel uncomfortable.

I look forward from hearing from you soon.

Practice description

Currently I am only available via Zoom or telephone.

I am planning to return to office-based work by early 2022 which will be in the All-Saints Centre in Huthwaite.

Sessions are £45 per session or £35 for students or those on benefits

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

My first session

Our initial session is more a getting to know each other opportunity than a therapeutic session.

We can ask each other questions to find out if I am the most suitable person to work with you. I am more than happy to answer any questions that you may have.

This is a great time to explore, just what you want from counselling and if I can offer it.

I will go over the contract and can explain the therapeutic process in  more detail so you have a good understanding on what working with me will involve. 

There’s no need to sign the contract there and then. I am happy for you to leave after this inital meeting and have think about if you want to work with me or not.

If we feel that working together would be beneficial, then we can move forward together into therapy.
