About me and my therapy practice
I am a qualified psychotherapist and counsellor and have gained experience from working with various counselling organisations prior to working in private practice.
I am also an EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) Therapist. EMDR is a powerful psychotherapy that helps people recover from traumatic life events.
I work one to one with adults and offer long and short term therapy. I am experienced in working with people from diverse cultural and social backgrounds from age 18 and upwards.
I understand that searching for a therapist can be daunting, wondering whether you can be completely open with a stranger. I provide a confidential, safe and welcoming space encouraging openness for you to explore what is troubling you. I am a warm, empathic and reflective therapist. I would hope that we would build a trusting relationship enabling you to work towards your therapeutic goals, with the aim of getting to the root of your issues.
We can think about how you function in relationships, reflecting on any unhelpful patterns of thoughts, expectations and behaviours which might be getting in the way of you achieving closeness with others and gaining happiness.
Working at a pace that is right for you, we may explore your past relationships and experiences, and how they might be impacting on you in the present.
I am experienced in working with a range of issues including stress, anxiety, depression and relationship issues.
My first session
I offer a fifteen minute, cost free initial telephone chat/consultation. This gives us both a chance to decide whether we feel we are right for each-other before committing to a first session. Our first session will give you further opportunity to see how you feel about working with me. I hope to support you at what can be a distressing time.
Sessions are 50 minutes in length, although the first session may last up to one hour.
