About me and my therapy practice
Thank you for viewing my profile. If you are feeling overwhelmed or struggling to cope, then please get in touch. I specialise in anxiety, depression, loneliness and managing uncertainty. Talking through your problems can make you feel less alone.
We are living in an environment of constant change and counselling can provide the stability you need. The knowledge that you have a planned time to talk about your worries can provide comfort and relief.
I can support you in making sense of what is happening in your life and help you to see things in a different way: I will listen without judgment or interruption. My role is not to give advice but help you to explore your feelings and provide the time to think about yourself and for yourself.
My previous career as an HR and Change Management consultant has given me insight into the different ways that people respond to change. Understanding the change cycle and how this applies to your life can be useful in adapting and integrating new ways of living. I have also trained as a coach which allows me to draw on different techniques such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) to make positive change in your life.
I have worked with clients in all stages of adult life who have suffered trauma, loss or significant change and are now keen to understand how this has impacted on their lives and outlook today.
In addition to running my private practice, I am an approved therapist with the Barnardo's LINK support service. In December 2010, the law changed so that only counsellors and psychotherapists registered as an adoption support agency (ASA) with Ofsted are able to offer specialist adoption services. As an affiliated counsellor with Barnardos, I am able to provide adoption counselling to clients.
It is important that you feel comfortable talking to me. Before you make any commitment, please get in touch for a chat about how I can support you.
I have a BA in Management and Psychology, a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling, an MA in Personnel Management and a Certificate in Adoption Support Counselling. I am a Mental Health First Aider for Mental Health First Aid England and a member of the BACP and The British Psychological Society.
