About me and my therapy practice
Is life hard to bear? I'm a qualified, experienced, BACP registered counsellor offering a safe, caring space. Experience includes anxiety, addiction, cancer, depression, trauma, relationships, childhood, loss. Regular sessions £45/hour. 1st session free.
Empathy, lack of judgement and integrity are the core elements of the therapeutic relationship which allows clients to reveal elements of themselves, and their lives, that they may never have shared with anyone before. This often brings relief and a growth in self-awareness, self-confidence and self-compassion. I believe that each human being has the innate possibility for happiness and fulfillment and I work with clients to unlock that potential.
About me: Having graduated 20 years ago, I spent my early career working in industry, however, my interest in people and helping others, led me to start training as a therapist over six years ago. I worked for 18 months as a counsellor at a local hospice helping individuals with grief, cancer, childhood problems and relationship issues. I also work for a local counselling agency.
The Process: Therapy is a much-used term, but it's often unclear what the process actually entails. For me, the most important element of successful therapy is the therapeutic relationship. This provides the space for clients to safely and securely talk about what is going on for them. With attuned listening I help clients to make sense of what's going on and what may be underlying that. Often we carry childhood influences that may no longer be relevant to our adult lives. Gaining insight, clients are able to make choices about how they want to be in the here and now, as adults. I am an integrative therapist tailoring therapy to each individual’s needs. Fees: 50 minute sessions in blocks of 6,12, or more. The cost is £45.00 per session.
