About me and my therapy practice

Feeling anxious, stressed or stuck? Finding your mood is low and you're feeling overwhelmed a lot of the time? I help people who are feeling like this to find new ways to be with their experiences, bringing clarity, a fresh feel to repetitive emotions and change. I work in a gentle, supportive way, helping you to explore what you are finding difficult and find new ways forward.

Having originally trained and worked as a mental health nurse in the NHS for many years, I went on to train in Person-centred counselling. I discovered that by moving the focus away from illness and towards self-awareness, self-understanding and self-acceptance, people are empowered to make the changes they are seeking.

I work in a way that not only helps you to pay attention to how your mind is feeling, but also sensing in your body, increasing your awareness of the whole of you. Our bodies are continually giving us information (for example, feeling tense and anxious) that we so often try to ignore. When we appreciate that these feelings are our body’s way of trying to get our attention and we listen to this deeper knowing, we can start to see what we are struggling with in new ways, allowing change to follow naturally.

I have a passion for continual learning and discovering new ideas. I feel it is an honour to be a counsellor, to connect deeply with people, share their inner worlds and help them bring about lasting change.

I believe that everyone is able to make positive changes to lead a happier, more fulfilling life and that we all need some help at sometime to make that happen.


Practice description

As well as counselling in a room and on Zoom, I also offer walking counselling, in beautiful natural surroundings. Out in nature, we are often better able to listen to our intuition, see our problems more clearly, enabling us to heal and grow. It can be easier to talk about difficult issues outside.

Each session is one hour.

I work with clients, long and short term, who come with issues including:

Depression, low self esteem

Anxiety, stress and feeling overwhelmed

Stress at work

Loss and bereavement

Redundancy

Relationship issues

Traumatic Events

Long term illness

Anger issues

My first session

At the centre of therapy is our relationship together and this is where I would start…with getting to know you and spending time listening to your worries and feelings. Being able to talk to someone in an accepting, non-judgemental and confidential place can feel liberating and safe, allowing you to acknowledge and explore parts of yourself that may not have felt safe enough to be present before. We can make space for all of these parts and welcome them.

Our first session together is primarily an opportunity for you to tell me what made you get in touch and what your aims are for counselling. During this session it is important that you get a sense of whether you would like to work with me and for me to sense if I feel I can help you. At the end of that first session, we would discuss if we feel we can work together.
