About me and my therapy practice

A warm welcome to you, I am currently at capacity and not now taking on clients at this time.

I’m a qualified therapist involving Humanistic and integrative counselling. I have professional and personal experience working in and through Anxiety, Chronic or Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Stress, Low Self-Esteem, Depression and various associated issues. I have also worked with drug and alcohol addiction, issues around bullying, as well as PTSD and trauma. I also have experience around issues in Nerd/Geek and Alternative Culture.

Practice description

I feel it is vital that we work together in establishing a supportive and empathic relationship, through building trust and both of us creating a space in which you can explore and grow. 

I believe that therapy can be the excavation of ourselves, that it can be as rewarding as it can be painful. Because of this, I feel it is essential you are treated with care, respect and move at a pace with which you are comfortable. However, I also feel it is important that we both be involved with what you bring, for you to be challenged and be able to focus on the work.

I work both fixed, short, or long term and open-ended.

I work online and one on one.

I practice by the BACP ethical framework.

My first session

If you feel that it is time to begin or continue with counselling and think that I would be a good fit for you, then you can give me a call or send me an email, and we can arrange an initial session. When we meet for the first time, it will be an opportunity to get to know each other, and we can discuss what it is you would like to bring to therapy and what you would like to achieve. Then if you decide to continue, we can agree on a regular weekly slot.

I work both fixed, short, or long term and open-ended.

I work online, telephone and face to face.
