About me and my therapy practice

Deciding to look into therapy to support and/or develop ourselves takes courage. I offer a safe space to explore whatever it is that has brought you to counselling. Therapy can help at a time of crisis, or at a point in life where it feels necessary to make some changes and work on ourselves, through learning about all aspects of what makes us who we are, and working towards us being able to take control of who we want to be, through building self-awareness, self-acceptance and resilience.

I have experience working with a broad range of life’s issues, some of which are detailed below. My background is in corporate Financial Services, enabling me to have insight into the pressures of the corporate world. I am also a parent and, as such, have experienced first hand, the stresses and strains that come with this role, which has been invaluable in my counselling practice.

I am a BACP registered, Integrative Therapeutic Counsellor, with over 4 years of experience in offering counselling to young people and adults from 13yrs onward, working for a local charity and in schools. I work under the guidelines of the ethical framework required by the BACP, which ensures our safety while working together (for full details, please review this link: https://www.bacp.co.uk/events-and-resources/ethics-and-standards/ethical-framework-for-the-counselling-professions/ethics/).

As an Integrative Therapist, I work with both Person-Centred and Psychodynamic theory, which we will use to shape our sessions together, to suit us in working towards whatever it is that has brought you to counselling.  Because your autonomy is paramount to our sessions and my approach, I work flexibly with this integrated model and you would not have to explore anything you did not feel safe to. If you want to discuss any queries about therapy or book an appointment, please do get in touch.

My first session

Each of the sessions I offer at 50 minutes long. The first session is a great opportunity for us to see if we will be a good fit to work together.  During that session, we can take time to consider whether you feel comfortable to continue coming to see me.
