About me and my therapy practice
I am a qualified integrative counsellor working with adults 18+ face to face or online.
Thanks for taking the step to look at my profile, this may mean that you are currently having some struggles which are having an impact on your life. From personal experience, I know only too well how taking the step to seek personal therapy can be scary and anxiety inducing. I also appreciate how challenging it can be to talk to someone that you have never met before.
Often, talking to someone that has no personal connections to you can seem daunting but talking to a counsellor can help you make sense of your thoughts and feelings which may bring up emotions that may be overwhelming for you causing you to be ‘stuck’ in unhelpful patterns of behaviour.
Whatever you are feeling, you don’t have to go through it alone. Together we can step into your world and explore whatever changes that you’d like to make.
I want you to feel truly heard and understood.
My approach is warm and empathic, giving you a calm and confidential environment to explore your world, leading to a greater awareness of yourself and ultimately self-acceptance. I offer a safe and non-judgemental space for you to express your thoughts and feelings all at your own pace.
You are the expert of your own life and I’ll take that journey with you as I get to know you. I will encourage and support you, every step of the way.
Everyone is different, so as a trained Integrative counsellor, I can use different therapeutic approaches to suit you as a unique individual. Along with my therapeutic approaches, I also bring my own life experiences and compassion borne out of my own therapeutic journey and experience. I will often incorporate some visual or creative techniques as part of our session if it is in your best interest.
I offer long or short term face to face or online sessions on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis to suit you.
The amount of sessions that you may require is completely up to you as some issues may need more sessions than others but we can discuss this at your first session. Moving forward, we will do regular review sessions to check in with you how your sessions are progressing and if they are working for you. Of course, you are free to see how the first session goes and if you feel I am the right person for you or not. You are in control and can end the sessions whenever you feel that you are ready to do so-I am completely guided by you.
Please do get in touch if now is the right time for you to begin a new chapter in your life.
My first session
Before your first session I will usually ask you to complete a client intake form. This will be emailed to you along with a confirmation of your session date and time and information about the location of your session and payment details.
The first session usually consists of a little paperwork and for me to get to know what’s going on in your world. It also gives you the opportunity to see if I am the right person for you or not.
