About me and my therapy practice

  • Hello, and thanks for checking my profile! A little about me - I live in the north of England with my family. Having graduated in Psychology, and worked in mental health, I worked in finance for many years. I decided that I wanted to return to work that helped people with their lives, and felt a strong draw towards counselling, which culminated in a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling & Psychotherapy. I work as a person-centred counsellor.

    People have busy lifestyles these days and I decided I wanted to offer counselling that people could access from the comfort of their home. Counselling can feel scary and some people find that they feel more at ease with online counselling. You may feel less self-conscious with online counselling, and more comfortable in your own environment. I also wanted to offer flexibility in how people access online therapy, and so offer video, audio-only, live-chat and email counselling. I work with a platform called Zoom. All you need is a computer or a tablet so you can download Zoom and we are good to go!

    Life can be so hard at times. Whatever is going on for you, counselling can help you with your life - exploring your concerns in an accepting online space can be a great relief, as you share the difficulties, hopes and fears that may have been weighing you down. Being listened to with great care, and a deep acceptance for your right to feel the way that you do, can lead to change and healing.

    Counselling can help you change, as you learn to view yourself as the most important judge of you, your life and your role in this world. And this change may help you move towards a better relationship with others.

    Whether you choose counselling by video, audio, live chat or email, beginning counselling can be an act of great self-care.
