About me and my therapy practice
I believe that everyone deserves to find peace and contentment in their life, and that gaining greater self-knowledge and understanding is an essential part of the process. I provide a safe and confidential space for you to explore your feelings, thoughts and beliefs at your own pace, in an atmosphere of warmth and compassion. I will hear you without judgement, and help you to make sense of what is troubling you so that you can come to terms with events and learn to value yourself more deeply.
I am a warm and approachable listener and will offer empathy and acceptance. I work in an integrative way, which means that I am flexible in my approach and can adapt my way of working to suit you.
Before qualifying as a counsellor I worked for many years in education and understand the pressures and strains put on young people and their families. As a counsellor I am experienced at working with children and adolescents as well as with adults, and have worked with a range of problems such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, loss, anger management and relationship issues. I am happy to see clients face-to-face or online.
My first session
In your first session I will ask you a number of questions to help me to get to know you and to begin to find out how best to help you. You can ask me questions to help you decide if you would like to proceed. We will discuss what you would like to get out of counselling. If we agree to work together we will review our work together regularly and discuss whether your needs are being met, any concerns either of us may have, and the future direction of our work.
