About me and my therapy practice
I am an experienced and accredited BACP Counsellor with over 20 years experience. I have worked in various settings over the years including the NHS, mainly based in GP surgeries to private work in Staff Occupational Health Services in Universities, Retail and Employee Assistance Programmes'.
I offer face to face, online and telephone sessions to adults from 18 years and upwards.
The sessions I offer are confidential, supportive and empathic. I aim to give you the experience of feeling understood, supported and contained to help alleviate your symptoms of personal distress and suffering and will work towards you feeling empowered so that you can confidently remove any obstacles that are blocking you from happiness and achieving personal growth and change.
My Humanistic approach encourages you to understand yourself and explore the inner conflicts that may be causing your current difficulties. My goal is to help you develop a meaningful, positive sense of self which will give you the resilience and power to reach your potential and live life fully.
My particular interests are in relationship difficulties with people in your life, low self-esteem, depression , anxiety, work related stress, bereavement, pet bereavement.
If you wish to speak to me before making an appointment then please call me. This gives you the opportunity to ask me questions and help you to determine if I am the right counsellor for you to work with.
My first session
At our first session I will work with you to understand the current problems you are having and also explore any influences from your life history that may be contributing to your present suffering.
We will identify your goals and I will explain how I will work with you to determine your desired outcomes from the sessions. It is my intention to work collaboratively and transparently with you and invite regular reviews of how the sessions are progressing to ensure you are benefitting from the hard work that you engage with in counselling.
