About me and my therapy practice
As you’re scrolling through these profiles today, it's likely there is an area of your life that you are struggling with right now.
Counselling provides a time and space for you to explore why and how issues you have experienced in the past are now affecting you. I offer you a non- judgemental space where you can verbalise those things you find it difficult to talk about and I will help you to find new ways of dealing with those emotions so that they don’t continue to impact your life in a negative way.
As an integrative counsellor, I have experience of working with clients with a variety of issues including anxiety, panic attacks, depression, bereavement, loss (in its many forms, including redundancy, the breakdown of a relationship and empty nest syndrome), relationship issues, stress, and low self-esteem and lack of confidence.
We can meet face to face, by Zoom or Teams or by telephone. Some clients like to work with a combination of these methods, depending on their lifestyle.
Life can be busy, and finances stretched, and committing to attending therapy for an hour every week can sometimes be a challenge. I therefore also offer fortnightly sessions.
I am a qualified counsellor and registered member of the BACP and adhere to the BACP ethical framework, ensuring best possible working practice.
I am an integrative Counsellor, trained in a variety of theoretical approaches including Person Centred, Psychodynamic, Transactional Analysis and CBT and I draw on these depending on best fit for you and your needs.
I want to support you to feel empowered and validated and to deepen your self-awareness. I hope to help you to identify any desire to change those things that are troubling your and help you to achieve that change by exploring your concerns and helping you to build positive coping skills.
I have experience of counselling face to face, online and by telephone.
I offer concessionary rates for Trainees.
My first session
A good relationship between client and therapist is paramount to successful therapy. You should feel safe to explore your issues in the knowledge that your therapist will treat you with respect and maintain confidentiality.
I hope you will find I am warm and genuine. I want you to feel you can be open and honest with me. Our first session is a chance for me to introduce myself and for us to see if we feel we can work together. There is no obligation to continue further sessions with me.
We would agree terms to work together and I may ask for a brief history so I can get an idea of your circumstances. I might ask you about any previous experience you may have had of counselling and ask what your goals are for therapy. After this introduction I would invite you to tell me in more detail what your concerns are.
If we decide to work together, we will have regular sessions – usually weekly. I will check in with you at intervals throughout your therapy to review our work and ensure we are making progress a pace that suits you. The focus is always on you.
