About me and my therapy practice
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.
I am a person-centred therapist, what this means is that your therapy is led by you with me there to facilitate you to explore what you bring to a session. I will never ask you to prepare for a session (although you are free to if it helps you) and I will never direct you in terms of what to do in a session. We will work together to explore ways forward that feel right for you, I will be someone to hear you and be on your side no matter what you bring. I offer hourly sessions where you will be able to work with me in a non-judgemental way. I am also able to accommodate evening appointments with prior agreement, please note though due to other work commitments my private spaces are most likely to be on a Monday.
To support my counselling work I have also trained in ecotherapy (working outside and with the natural world) as well as in basic mindful techniques, I am also happy to use art materials within therapy. I work 4 days a week within the Perinatal Team at the local NHS mental health trust. I therefore have experience working with women in both the antenatal or postnatal period that are experiencing difficulties with their mental health and specialise in this.
I completed all my counselling training through the Norwich Centre where I gained my Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling, this course is recognised by BACP. What this means is that all my counselling is delivered at a professional level and I must meet certain requirements to keep my membership valid. This includes having regular supervision to make sure I am practicing properly. I also abide by a strict code of Ethics that can be found on the BACP website.
Outside of my counselling work I am a Primary Tutor on the MSc in Contemporary Person-Centred Psychotherapy and Applications at the Metanoia Institute in London which is a UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy) validated course.
I have now returned to in person work and rent a room at St Barnabas Counselling Centre in Norwich.
My first session
I offer an introductory/exploratory session for all new clients. This is a 30 minute session (the cost is £15) where we can meet each other and you can let me know what you are seeking counselling for and see how you feel about working with me. I can answer any queries you have about therapy and explain how the sessions might work. I also have a contract and privacy agreement that I can explain to you in this meeting.
