During this period I am working remotely via telephone and video counselling. I hope to review this in September.
My caseload is currently full and I am unable to take on new clients at the moment. However, do feel free to make contact and I can place you on my waiting list.
I am on holiday from w/c 27th July to 12th August 2020 and will be unable to respond to queries. Please leave a message and I will make contact as soon as possible on my return.
Thank you and stay safe.
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.
