About me and my therapy practice

I am a BACP registered and accredited therapist. Due to Covid-19, I am currently offering only telephone and online counselling. It is my intention to return to providing face-to-face sessions in central Leicester, when it is considered safe to do so. 

I am fully insured and have qualifications in Psychology and Counselling up to Masters level. I initially trained as a person-centred counsellor, but have since developed a more integrative approach, having completed training in EMDR and Transactional Analysis. 

I offer a safe space for clients to talk about their experiences, thoughts and feelings. I listen attentively and respectfully without judgement. I work alongside clients to resolve difficulties, find new ways forward and make positive changes. 

I am able to provide therapy for adults, children and young people. I have previously worked for Cruse Bereavement Care,  and have also counselled survivors of historical sexual abuse and rape at a Rape Crisis Centre. I have delivered counselling to children in schools when working for Relate and in private practice.

Concessions are available for those on lower incomes and counselling trainees. If you have difficulty in accessing the premises due to disability, then an alternative location can be discussed.

My first session

The purpose of the first session is for us to decide whether working together is a good step at this time. I will talk with you about how I work, and also ask you about what has brought you to therapy at this time. I am very open to answering questions that will help you to decide whether you would like to proceed with therapy.
