About me and my therapy practice

I understand how difficult it can be finding a counsellor or coming to therapy for the first time. I also believe that having the right therapist is vital to successful counselling. Sometimes we can feel overwhelmed with the challenges in our lives and need a place where we can have some space to think about ourselves without fear of being judged or criticised.  For many years I have worked in a supporting role within the domestic violence and sexual violence sectors, specialising in working with adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse and harm. My work has involved counselling, crisis work and advocacy. I have worked with Women’s Aid Integrated Services (WAIS), Women’s Aid and as a counsellor with men and women at SV2 (formally Derbyshire Rape Crisis). I have additional training and experience in working with trauma, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Complex PTSD and Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID). I have experience in working with children and young adults in both private and school settings with CASY (Counselling and Support for Young People). This work has been with young people aged 6 -25 years and their families. I have completed further training in working with Looked After Children, child development, separation, loss and attachment, managing behaviours, diversity and identity, child abuse and safer caring. Counselling sessions for young people offer a chance to explore thoughts, feelings and behaviours which are causing distress and learn how to make changes to improve wellbeing. I have a varied experience of working with many issues that can affect life during adolescence. If you wish to discuss your own or your child's situation please get in touch.

Practice description

In our sessions together, you will have the time to explore your thoughts and feelings and identify areas of concern or difficulty, which may be preventing you achieving your goals and fulfilling your potential.

I offer short or long term therapy, assisting you to explore your difficulties in a safe place based on warmth, acceptance and respect. I welcome people from all backgrounds, faiths, ethnicity, gender and sexuality.

My first session

To help you decide if I am the right person for you I offer a free initial meeting (30 mins) where you can tell me more about yourself and what you would like to achieve. You will get a taste of how counselling works and see if we feel comfortable working together. There is no obligation, and you may want to visit a few therapists before making a decision.
