About me and my therapy practice

You are the expert on you and your life, but sometimes you may need somebody to actively listen to how you are feeling so you can re-evaluate your choices, decisions, actions and feelings.

I know it can feel scary and nerve wracking talking to a complete stranger about what's bothering you, but don't worry, you're in safe hands and together we can explore what's happening for you at a pace to suit you.

Person-centred counselling is a non-directive client lead talking therapy; you choose what you want to talk about. It focuses on the here and now. The sessions provide you with a safe and confidential environment for you talk.

I am currently working in schools in Doncaster with the students and teachers, and work with children & young people in my private practice who have a variety of issues from exam stress, to peer pressure and friendship issues, to home stresses and family relationships. I sometimes incorporate play therapy as part of the session as I find it helps to relax the client, and use aspects of CBT in all sessions.

I work with students who are struggling with the transition from school to college / university, and with the pressure of exams and from peers.

I provide also family and couples therapy, and work with victims of sexual abuse and domestic violence.

I have my own counselling room (separate from the main house) offering a safe, comfortable and relaxing environment for you to talk about what is important to you at that moment. I'm situated close to junction 4 of the M18, with off-road parking.
