About me and my therapy practice

am a BACP accredited Psychotherapist/Counsellor and Clinical Supervisor and have approximately 12 years experience working with people, age 16 and over.  During this time, I have achieved various psychological qualifications and gained extensive experience working within private practice, NHS, EAPs, Universities, Charities, Voluntary sector. I am registered with  BUPA, AXA, Aviva, & Vitality Health. 

I care warmly about helping people and provide an emotion focused integrative approach.  I facilitate a process to enable people to increase self-understanding about the origins of feelings, patterns and responses, which can enable people to approach life differently.  I encourage change that is right for each person by offering an empowering approach and suggest coping skills, as appropriate.

I can offer time-limited focused psychological interventions and longer-term psychological therapy for an extensive range of difficulties.

Online Counselling - Yes

Telephone Counselling - Yes

Face to face Counselling - Currently - No

I look forward to hearing from you.

My first session

I understand that seeking help and accessing therapy can be a difficult step to take and it takes courage to make that first step. Often people feel more comfortable after their first contact.

Our first contact is usually a free 15-20 minute phone call. This is not a therapy session, however, we will discuss your therapy goals and determine if my counselling approach may be suitable for you.  We will briefly talk about the difficulties you're going through and cover any of your questions. We'll explore your therapy expectations and work out if we both feel that we're a good fit to work together.

If we both feel happy to progress, we'll organise the first therapy session. In the first session, it’s your time and opportunity to share your story. I'll ask questions about your history, your life  and begin to build a picture of who you are, and what therapy approach may be helpful for you.
