About me and my therapy practice

Anyone can benefit from therapy. There are some situations where long-term work is necessary but just a few sessions can be very helpful too.

I have helped people work through a wide range of issues, such as:

Loss and bereavement

Childhood and more recent trauma

Anxiety and generalised anxiety disorder

Depression and feeling sad

Issues of prescribed drug dependence and withdrawal

Relationship and family issues

Sexuality and identity

Low self esteem and self confidence

Life purpose and direction

Often adults, children and young people I work with want to move beyond difficult thoughts, feelings and behaviours and counselling offers us the opportunity to work together with effective methods to bring about change.

My theoretical perspective is Humanistic, believing that with the right support we all have the ability to fulfil our potential and achieve our goals. No one therapeutic approach is a 'cure-all' so being Integrative enables me to draw from a range of approaches to suit your unique needs and preferences. These approaches include Person Centred, Gestalt and Transactional Analysis. 

The therapeutic process can bring deeply held emotions to the surface, the idea of which may initially be daunting. However, it can also be comforting, enriching, exciting and empowering, where real and lasting change can take place.

"In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer." - Albert Camus

Practice description

I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space.

Although my approach is predominantly 'talking therapy' some clients find creative approaches helpful, such as sand tray, art work, visualisation, body awareness and breath-work. These may include coping techniques/skills for use outside of sessions. Where I think a creative approach might be helpful it will be offered as an invitation. Our work together will be a collaborative process, keeping your goals and preferences very much in mind throughout.

I offer long, open ended and short-term counselling. Sessions are weekly. You are not expected to commit to any fixed number of sessions. For children, I advise parents/carers plan for six sessions which will be reviewed throughout and extended if necessary and agreed by all involved.

Alongside my private practice, I am a Designated Safeguarding Officer for a local charity and supervise their practitioners in supporting vulnerable children in schools.

My first session

I recommend an initial 30 minute meeting, offered free of charge. I will ask you what brought you to consider therapy and we can discuss my approach and how it might help you. This time together will help you decide if I am the right therapist for you. It is human connection and acceptance that makes therapy productive so our relationship will be key to you feeling safe in exploring your feelings and experiences. This time also enables me to make an assessment of your presenting issues and ensure that I have appropriate training and competence to support you.

I work online (via Zoom), telephone and face to face. Please note that face to face sessions are offered with safety measures in place, in line with current government guidelines and BACP recommendations. Please feel free to contact me with any queries or to arrange an initial meeting via one of these methods. I look forward to hearing from you.
