About me and my therapy practice

Hi. My name is Denise and I am a Person Centred Counsellor.

I offer a warm, safe non judgemental space for you to work through your thoughts and feelings. 

I have experience working with a wide range of issues and clients. 

It takes bravery and courage to take that first step and it can seem overwhelming. I'm here to help make that step as comfortable and easy as possible.  

I work client led which means you are in control of the content and direction of sessions. I will be there to listen, bring empathy and hopefully help you understand yourself, your thoughts and your feelings better. To help you in gaining emotional awareness and support you in whatever issues you might be facing. 

Practice description

I have been qualified for 3 years and have been practising continually. I work in schools but also privately with children, young people and adults. 

As face to face work has been suspended for the time being , I am able to offer telephone and video counselling services. 

I sometimes incorporate creative tools when appropriate.

My first session

I offer a free telephone consultation. This is a really informal chat for me to get an understanding of why your are looking for therapy and for you to get to know me a little bit too. This normally only takes around 15/20 minutes and if you would like to go ahead we can book a session then.
