About me and my therapy practice
Searching for a counsellor may feel like a daunting experience. One of the biggest challenges can be knowing who to choose and what style of counselling to try. I believe the first step is about finding someone who makes you feel at ease to enable you to explore some of your most private problems in a safe, non judgemental way. Counselling is a wonderful opportunity to put yourself first, something we all have a right to do.
My approach is integrative, meaning I have trained in a variety of counselling techniques and can adapt my skills for each individual client. I offer short and long term counselling, focusing on the specific needs of my clients and work with many different problems such as; affairs, anxiety, bereavement, depression, grief, illness, infertility, life stage changes, stress, and work related issues. This list is not limited, if you are unsure whether I can help you, please contact me and I'll be glad to advise you.
I am a specialist bereavement counsellor, infertility counsellor, and relationship counsellor, having taken additional training in these areas.
As an accredited member of BICA (British Infertility Counselling Association) I also run implications counselling sessions in line with HFEA (Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority) guidelines (see below).
*Fertility Counselling: I provide supportive counselling to couples and individuals embarking on fertility treatment, or wishing to work through the emotional challenges that fertility difficulties so often create.
*Implications Counselling: These are counselling sessions to explore the impact of becoming a donor or donor recipient, of eggs, sperm or embryos and additionally those considering surrogacy.
My first sessionThe first session provides us the opportunity to get to know one another and establish a plan going forward. I will have some paper work to complete with you to help me assess your needs. You may have questions to ask which we will also have time to explore.
