About me and my therapy practice
If you are reading this, you have already taken a big step by considering that you may be helped by counselling. Everyone struggles with life from time to time and talking to someone who is not a close friend or family member can help. Counselling is not just beneficial when faced with an emotional crisis but also if you are considering or struggling with changes in your life or just feel ‘stuck in a rut’.
I am a Humanistic Integrative counsellor, this means I use a range of methodologies to be able to tailor a therapeutic approach to best suit your needs. I will not give you advice nor will I tell you what to do but instead I will work with you to explore your feelings and understand your behaviours, empowering you to decide what changes you would like to make to reach your goals.
I offer you a safe place to talk. I will listen to you without judgement. You are free to be open and honest as our sessions are confidential. Together we will look at what you are concerned about and gain an understanding of how best to move forward.
Prior to becoming a counsellor, I have worked in the pressurised world of Information Technology and I appreciate the stresses and demands that can be part of everyday life. I have also experienced first-hand the benefits that counselling can bring during times of vulnerability.
Choosing to come for counselling can be very daunting and finding a counsellor you are happy to work with can be hard. To make this a little easier, I offer a 30 minute introduction session at a reduced rate of £10. This is an opportunity for us both to get to know each other, for you to ask any questions and to decide if I am the right counsellor for you.
