About me and my therapy practice

"Contact me for an informal 20 minute, chat free of charge, to explore the possibility of how talking to a counsellor may be helpful."

Together we will look at how you are affected in the present. I do not ask about details of what the event/trauma was, working with what it has left you with. 

Personalising therapy to the individual by integrating various counselling skills. As a Humanistic Integrative Counsellor, combining Person Centred, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT).

Practice description

In addition to private practice I have worked for over four years for a local charity, counselling individuals for domestic violence, sexual abuse, PTSD and depression.

Experienced in dealing with trauma/anxiety/stress and psycho-education relating to the over stress of the body and mind.

Feeling disconnected or overwhelmed; feeling low or numb; just not being able function or feeling like you can't switch off. 

With trauma I will not ask you about the past or the event, we will focus on what it has left you with. Going at your pace, as you are the expert on yourself. Using tools and techniques, together we work on how this is impacting you now.

My first session

There is no judgement and any conversation will be kept confidential (within BACP guidelines).

An initial informal chat of 20 minutes free of charge, to answer any questions you may have. A chance to discuss what type of therapy I have training and experience in and how I can help.

The first session would be about how we can work together. Some of this session will be going through a contract and confidentiality. 

My role is to listen, not give advice or tell you what to do.
