About me and my therapy practice
I work in an integrated style with a special interest in Compassion Focused Therapy. My aim is to create a safe environment for clients so they can share their thoughts and concerns in a completely confidential way.
Occasionally it helps to review and reflect on life's pathway. It can be hard to do this by ourselves, and our friends and family may feel too close to confide in. It can be helpful to explore our feelings and emotions in a safe, non-judgmental environment, I can provide this in a relaxing, quiet therapeutic space in Devizes, Wiltshire.
I have 15 years’ counselling experience with a deep interest in working with; bereavement and loss; anxiety; low mood and depression; relationship issues; PTSD. I have worked with a broad range of clients from 16 years old to elders in their 70s and above.
I have over 8 years experience working with military families and veterans experiencing PTSD within the mental health field with military veterans and their families. I have an understanding of how transitioning into civilian life can impact all family members. I have volunteered with Cruse Bereavement Care for many years, leading to a deep interest in the impact that grief and loss has on all areas of life. I currently facilitate a Bereavement Support Group for the NHS.
My first session
I offer all my clients a free 15 minute telephone or Zoom call. This is so we can see whether we would be a good match to work together. We can also use this time to explore any concerns about the counselling process. If you then decide to engage in some therapy with me we will move on to a 50 minute appointment where we can explore your concerns in more detail. We will then go on to plan our sessions together.
I am able to offer in person sessions in my office in Devizes, Wiltshire and remotely by Zoom.
