About me and my therapy practice

 I aim to create a  non- judgemental atmosphere that feels safe enough for you to talk about your thoughts and feelings or to explore current difficulties you may be experiencing in your  relationships or at work. The opportunity to explore ways of understanding yourself, relating differently to friends or family members and feeling more comfortable  in your current situation. If you find yourself feeling alone, isolated, confused, anxious or depressed, I can offer you an opportunity to explore a different perspective and find new ways of coping.

Practice description

Due to the Covid situation, I am currently offering only telephone appointments.

I have 15 years experience working in the NHS and in private practice,  with a wide range of individuals who have been troubled by past difficult experiences or current relationship  issues.

I draw on my initial training in Person-Centred and Psychodynamic counselling, which together with my experience of Solution Focused and Gestalt counselling and my further training in trauma using EMDR, enables me to tailor my approach to each unique individual and their personal circumstances.

I offer short term, 6-12 counselling sessions or longer term work if that feels appropriate.

My first session

Establishing a theraputic relationship is an essential element to being able to understand and explore ways in which past difficult experiences may continue to  influence our current situation.

Offering a supportive environment to enable you to strengthen and expand your understanding of yourself , to recognise your existing coping skills and your capacity to put in place small changes that will facilitate further changes in your wider situation.
