About me and my therapy practice

Compassion Focused Counsellor/Psychotherapist

Therapy offers you an opportunity to bring closer attention to your current ways of thinking, behaving and responding to others, your life experience and your own needs.

Participating in a therapy process takes 3 steps;

1. Courage - to be vulnerable, to be open, and accepting of what is going on right now.

2. Change - through exploration and self-awareness, development and growth will occur. Focus on gratitude as it is fundamentally important to a person's wellbeing as is feeling appreciation, rather than the need to feel happy all the time or striving for perfection which can not realistically be maintained.

You will have the opportunity to take responsibility for what doesn't feel right and find new ways to be more compassionate towards yourself and others to improve your mental wellbeing.

3. Continue - throughout the therapy process you will gain a deeper understanding of yourself and be on a new pathway to focusing your attention on living your life with a more contentment and alleviating distress.

My focus and promise to you is to be on that pathway with you as you develop the skills, knowledge and self-awareness through our discoveries and explorations together. I support my clients from a compassionate and mindful perspective.

Therapy takes commitment from both the client and counsellor as the therapeutic relationship is paramount for you to feel safe, held and supported throughout the therapy process.

Practice description

I am working from a lovely location in the uphill part of Lincoln, close by to the County Hospital. My therapy room is upstairs so unfortunately there is no wheelchair access.

We have a small waiting area and a car park but I am recommending to clients that they allow extra time to park up in a near by street where parking is available for 2 hours following the street parking signs. 

Please do not park in any of the NHS Car Parks.  

My first session

My intention is to respond within 24 hours of first contact. I welcome you to get in touch if you have any enquiries about face to face therapy, online or, in nature therapy sessions.

All enquiries will be met with a warm and encouraging response. Your decision to get in touch and search for a new opportunity taking action to support your health and wellbeing is a healthy choice you are giving to yourself. 

You can attend therapy as part of your personal or professional growth and development. You don't need to be struggling before you get in touch. Offering you a safe space to explore all parts of you that show up including your vulnerable or hidden self is paramount to me.  

You are welcome to meet with me for a consultation appointment where we can explore the possibility of working together. This gives us an opportunity to see if we are a good fit and if you like my CFT approach. 

I am always happy to recommend one of my wonderful colleagues if my style of working doesn't provide you with what you are looking for in therapeutic support. You always have a choice! 

If we agree to continue working together after our consultation session we work towards a review every four weeks and you are free to be open and honest as I encourage us to work in this way to enable us to meet your needs. 

Take the step to discover, explore and process what is really going on for you, we all have blind spots, fears, blocks and resistances at times. Coming to therapy opens up opportunities to uncover things that feel tricky, uncomfortable or overwhelming. 

Sometimes things may not make sense at the time of feeling uncertainty and therapy can offer you a broader perspective. Lets be in this together, you really don't need to feel alone with your thoughts and feelings.  

May you be the best version of who you are now
