About me and my therapy practice

Hi there, I am a warm and compassionate counsellor and psychotherapist who provides a confidential and non-judgemental therapeutic service for Adult clients (18+.) I have 9 years of experience working with clients therapeutically and in this time I have worked with a variety of client groups including anxiety, depression, relationship issues, family issues, low self-esteem, bereavement/loss, coping with caring responsibilities, loneliness and PTSD, although my training covers many other areas.

Having had counselling myself I have walked in the client’s shoes and I understand how difficult taking the first step to improved mental health can be. From experience I find that the first session (the 50 minute initial assessment) allows a client the opportunity to discuss their concerns or anxieties about the counselling process in an open and supportive environment whilst also providing an opportunity for client and therapist to assess our compatibility.

I offer clients a professional experience and I draw on my knowledge and training in various theories and techniques to create an individual therapy plan for my client. The goal of my clinical work is that a client will feel part of the therapy process from its beginnings and that an inclusive process continues to allow the sessions to be tailored to meet the needs of my clients and their individual goals.

I offer both short and long term work, depending on the issues the client presents at their initial assessment.
