About me and my therapy practice
I support clients, particularly parents, and adults with a genetic diagnosis, who want to improve their mental and emotional well being. I work with you one to one for 6-8 sessions, or long term to suit your needs. By utilising an Attachment Based Psychotherapy approach, I can help you to feel less anxious, stressed, and have more self acceptance and confidence.
I create a safe, understanding space for you to explore your issues. I am able to understand your early childhood experiences, past, and current relationships; also how these impact your difficulties today. I have a special interest in genetics and am experienced in providing counselling to adults with rare genetic diagnoses and to parents of a child with complex medical needs. I have extensive experience of working with Huntington's Disease families through Enroll-HD and Legato-HD. I am also experienced in supporting clients during or after pregnancy, including miscarriage, and loss.
It is hard to take the first step and let someone in. I am privileged to provide a safe and supportive space to my clients experiencing difficulties. I work safely and ethically within the BACP ethical framework and aim to work with you with humility and care. My past experience as a genetic counsellor in the NHS is an asset in my role as a therapist.
I offer an online counselling practice and work flexibly with you. In addition to my humanistic and attachment theory core, I utilise skills from other approaches like Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Transactional Analysis (TA) and Mindfulness. I am experienced in working with anxiety, depression, life changes, bereavement and loss, pre and post natal, genetics, and complex medical needs.
My first session
Before the first session, I offer an initial consultation, which is also 50 minutes. This is to understand what your hopes are of counselling and to decide how we can best work together. We will go through what to expect, how I work, and the working agreement. There is no obligation to continue as you decide if this is the right time for counselling for you. The initial consultation is offered at half of a session fee.
