About me and my therapy practice
I was a client before I was a counsellor and I know from experience that seeking support isn't always easy. My first priority is to make accessing support as stress free as possible by establishing an informal yet supportive environment. By creating a space which is free of judgement and where there is no problem more or less worthy than another, I'v helped many people work through some of their toughest moments.
My background is in person-centred counselling, however, over the years I have integrated elements of other disciplines allowing me to respond and adapt my approach to suit my client's needs.
I've helped clients of various ages and from a range of backgrounds work through issues including anxiety, depression, stress, self-esteem, loneliness, relationships, domestic / sexual abuse, loss and trauma.
As well as face to face sessions, I offer telephone and Zoom sessions as well as outdoor or 'eco' therapy. The outdoor sessions are held in Reddish Vale Country Park and combine the elements of a traditional therapy sessions with the great outdoors.
My first session
Email or text to set up an initial consultation. This is a free-of-charge conversation done over the phone or on Zoom and will take around 20-30 minutes. This will give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have and will allow me to explain a little more about the service. It will also give you the chance to get a better idea of me and how I work; this is highly important as the relationship is fundamental to the work.
