About me and my therapy practice

Are you looking for someone to listen and truly understand your story to help make sense of your life? I offer confidentiality, respect, compassion and acceptance whilst coming to understand you and how you wish to make changes in your life. I offer a safe space for exploration of your experiences in a collaborative manner, at your pace and depth. Being trained integratively, I am able to draw upon a variety of theoretical knowledge and therefore able to tailor my approach to your individual needs.

I am able to offer face-to-face, online and telephone appointments. I believe in the power of the Therapeutic Relationship in aiding people to find a more satisfying way of living. I have a BA Honours in Counselling and Psychotherapy, a PGDip in Integrative Psychotherapy and additional trauma training.

I work with a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, bereavement, self-esteem, drug and alcohol abuse and rehabilitation, trauma, personality disorders, sexual abuse and sexual assault.

I have a DBS check in place through my volunteer work with the NHS.

My first session

The first step in making contact with a therapist can be daunting but is necessary to achieve your goals in improving your life.

I offer a free 20 minute telephone consultation to decide whether we may be able to work together, discuss appointments along with a brief overview of your goals. For therapy to work, it is essential we are comfortable and honest with each other to build a trusting and collaborative relationship to best meet your needs.

The first session will incorporate contracting and further assessment, yet this may be completed via email so we can get to work together sooner.
