About me and my therapy practice
I understand how difficult it can be to make that first step forward to contacting a counsellor and want to make this as easy as possible for you by offering a free, no obligation telephone consultation to begin with. This gives us both the opportunity to see what type of support/counselling may be helpful to you and whether this is something we will be able to work together on. I work with clients who struggle with low self-esteem, low confidence, stress, anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, bereavement and loss. I offer an empathic , confidential safe space in which to explore what is troubling you at your own pace without pressure or judgement.
I offer sessions online (MS teams ) in person ( outside therapy, walk and talk). I am an experienced, qualified integrative counsellor and registered member of the BACP working in private practice. My background is in Nursing and health and social care and have worked for charitable organisations in the past who provide counselling in various community settings, GP surgeries and return to work programmes .
My own personal life experiences and challenges have shown me that with the right support we can find ways to overcome obstacles and difficulties in life and look forward to a more positive and fulfilled life.
I offer sessions, online, via Telephone or Video call ,eg MS team, face to face . walk and talk ( outdoor therapy)
I offer a free , no obligation, phone consultation which is an opportunity for you to ask any questions you might have and see if counselling may be of help to you, and if we may be able to work together on what is troubling you as everyone is different and so it is important to find the right counsellor to work with. Therefore there is no obligation to book a session following this.
simply email me using the above form to arrange a time that is suitable.
