About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced Psychodynamic Counsellor; I aim to provide an environment where there is further understanding of our sense of who we are and how we function with everyday “normality.”

Life can throw us unexpected curve-balls and we can inevitably feel overwhelmed and unable to cope. Within my sessions, I seek to create a space that allows us to explore and talk through our fears which can highlight how we cope both in crisis and everyday life. This can provide better understanding of our inner thoughts that can, at times, be overpowering.

I find that reflection and being open of mind brings trust for us to feel safe in sharing what has become difficult to carry alone.

Practice description

I am an experienced psychodynamically trained Counsellor and registered BACP member. I trained at Hertfordshire University and was awarded with a Postgraduate degree . I follow and comply with the BACP ethical framework and I subscribe to making sure that my continued professional developmental learning is up to date and of an approved standard.

I work within the following areas:

Bereavement

Anxiety

Depression/low-mood

Phobias and Addiction

Separation/Divorce

Trauma

I work alongside many individuals that experience a need to have a listening ear without judgement. This can have a huge impact on how we feel about ourselves and how we cope within daily relational dynamics.

My first session

I find it beneficial for people seeking to have counselling to attend a first session with me to see if we are a “good fit.”  

I take written details including historic family-information, local-surrounding support networks, health/medication details and expectations of what is needed or wanted from our counselling sessions together.

Initial consultation: £45 per hour.
