About me and my therapy practice

With a background in nursing, midwifery and health visiting as well as working in a support role in education I have always enjoyed working with, and to benefit other people. 

I am able to use my previous experience and psychotherapeutic training to support clients who may present with wide range of issues and challenges.

The training I undertook for Psychotherapeutic Counselling was Integrative. My working style has an emphasis on Humanistic and Transactional Analysis approaches.

I aim to help the client to access their innate resources, coping abilities and strengths, to achieve personal empowerment. We may look at and try to understand past experiences, to identify and provide insight into what changes may need to be made for present and future emotional security.

All work is confidential, I follow the BACP Ethical Framework.


Practice description

I work privately from a small summer house close to my home. 

It is a quiet, cosy, comfortable, private space where clients are able to feel safe to talk about issues that may feel unsafe for them.

My working style is calm, warm and non-judgemental. Therapeutic goals will be identified together and a way of working towards achieving those objectives will be our aim.

My first session

I offer clients a free 40 minute first session (either face to face, telephone or zoom), where the presenting issues and desired outcomes are discussed. If we both feel that we can work together, a client contract will be agreed. Dates and times for subsequent appointments can then be arranged, (this will usually be weekly). Appointments thereafter, are a full hour.
