About me and my therapy practice
I am an Integrative Therapist offering face-to-face and online counselling. You may have found yourself struggling, stuck or in pain and want to find ways to manage or change this. You may be trying to understand a situation or the shape and reasoning of the past. You may want to change or understand relationships or patterns of behaviour. During more peaceful times you may use therapy to support personal development.
I value the importance of the relationship between client and therapist as integral to change. I use elements of humanistic, psychodynamic and CBT approaches in my work, encouraging clients to work creatively to find means of expression.
The decision to start therapy can provoke anxiety and fear for some. We all feel more or less comfortable with our vulnerability at different times. The sessions recognise this. Creating an environment which helps to ensure you feel safe and able to manage any difficult feelings is an important part of our work together. There is never any expectation for you to talk about anything unless you feel ready.
I have an interest in the natural environment and continue to explore ways to bring this into the therapeutic relationship. I practice meditation and mindfulness, elements of which may also be brought into the relationship if we feel it would be supportive. I have a research interest in loneliness and finding language to talk about the issue.
I have managed a range of voluntary mental health services over the past 15 years, including those providing emotional support online, school based mental health awareness programme and a community counselling service. I have worked therapeutically with adults, young people and students offering both brief and longer term therapy. I am trained to deliver ASIST Suicide Intervention work and a Foundation for Infant Loss Accredited Provider
