About me and my therapy practice

Hi. I am a Counsellor and love this work. My greatest experience is working in the NHS as a Birth Trauma therapist. I have worked in a counselling service working with general life issues for 5 years too and most of my time I have also been available for private work. I am also a couple therapist. I am happy to work with clients on line or face to face, and occasionally I travel for appointments. 

What to expect: On a first session you might like to talk about why you have come. This will help us work together to create a picture of how you have been and think  about the best plan for a few weeks.  I have developed a very particular way of working with anxiety or trauma symptoms for example, which means I also normally provide you with some tools/techniques to work with from the start of our connection. They build confidence in you to really believe you can change how you are feeling now.

I work a great deal with trauma of every kind. Trauma really means you have been through events which leave your whole system anxious and stressed, Trauma might be severe anxiety after bullying, or a single incident like a car accident. Sometimes more severe symptoms may occur. All of this might be upsetting, I find that women or men rarely present with single issues and so therapy is an opportunity to work from the life store of a person's experience. If you are wondering if it might be good to see me, please text and we can work that out together.

The way that I work has been audited independently and I am happy to share those findings with you to encourage you to feel that things can improve. 

History can surface in times of stress. Trauma, anxiety, depression symptoms can be very uncomfortable. Please contact me if you feel that I might be able to help.
