About me and my therapy practice
The relationship between a client and their counsellor is a key factor in establishing effective counselling. So if you're feeling confused, unsure of where to turn, or it's your first time looking for a counsellor; take your time to find the right fit - explore the options available and ask questions. After reading more about how I practice I hope you'll feel able to contact me for an informal chat or to book a free assessment - I'd really like to hear from you. I've been described by clients and colleagues as a genuine, warm and gentle person. I believe such characteristics, combined with my skills and knowledge help me to establish a safe, trusting and respectful counselling environment where I focus on your specific therapeutic needs at a pace that suits you.
Such therapy involves deepening self awareness and allowing you time to process, understand and develop ways to cope with the psychological issues or difficult life experiences you may bring.
With greater self-awareness comes fresh perspectives that can help to empower us to make choices and bring about the changes we want to see in our lives. To that end, I endeavour to work in a flexible way, alongside you by adapting my approach to your therapeutic needs.
This means as a experiential person-centred therapist I work in a holistic way drawing upon a number of approaches such as psychodynamic, CBT and mindfulness to develop self-awareness, broaden personal perspective and foster healthy internal dialogues. Ultimately, I believe in learning how to connect with our inner power to help us reach our true potential.
I have 10 years experience in counselling and currently work part-time at Harmless CIC supporting adults and young people with issues around self-harm and suicide. I'm also a young person’s counsellor at Derby Relate working within schools.
