About me and my therapy practice

Hi, 

I am a qualified and experienced Counsellor, Interpersonal Therapist, Supervisor and Couples Counsellor. I have extensive knowledge and experience gained through working as a Therapist in the NHS and a private practice. I offer a professional service from my home in a quiet and confidential setting.

I am passionate about helping clients to understand and work through depression and anxiety symptoms to feel more integrated and secure. I integrate different therapeutic models based on clients individual needs, goals and personal requirements of therapy. In therapy we would work collaboratively to help you feel better about yourself. 

I am an advanced practitioner in Interpersonal Therapy which is a relational model recommended by NHS guidelines which focuses primarily on depression and relationships. This model specialises on Complex grief/loss, transitional life changes and relational difficulties with self and others. 

I also provide Individual counselling which includes exploring emotional difficulties and making sense of difficult life situations. I help make links to the past and present experiences, to gain deeper insight and understanding of patterns and communication styles. I provide caring support whilst processing painful experiences to gain new perspectives, solutions, and help to remove any blocks which prevent someone living a more fulfilling life. 

I understand it is difficult to choose a therapist, so I am happy to have telephone discussion beforehand to see if I am a good fit for you. 


Practice description

I take an active and collaborative stance in therapy. I draw on various therapeutic models -depending on the needs of the individual. 

My way of working is based on experience and regular up to date training. 


My first session

The first session is generally information gathering and developing a relationship with trust. I find people generally want to get into the work and issues, rather than long assessment sessions. I am happy to move at your pace, and help you along if required. 

This session may be naturally anxiety provoking, but I work with you to help you to feel comfortable. I can answer any questions and help you to get the best from therapy.

About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified and experienced therapist and supervisor. I currrently provide supervision within the NHS and in private practice. 

In supervision I work with you to enhance your practice and develop confidence in your work. I provide a safe and supportive space to discuss your clients and gain further insight. My supervision is underpinned by NHS and private practice experience and evidence based theories. 

It is also common to seek supervision to address:

  • Self-doubt and transference/counter transference 
  • Feeling stuck 
  • Feeling isolated and alone 
  • Symptoms of burn out

I integrate different counselling models, such as Person-Centred, CBT, TA, Interpersonal Therapy and Gestalt. I continue to develop my knowledge and experience by undertaking regular CPD.

I am passionate about working relationally with both supervisees and clients. I believe the relationship is at the forefront, and use a collaborative stance to share and develop insight.
