Hi, my name is Cheryl and I look forward to working with you.
The world of therapy can be a rewarding and empowering experience but may initially feel daunting. Many things may lead us to seek help including ongoing struggles, specific difficulties or feeling “stuck”. Therapy has the potential to achieve greater clarity, self-awareness, and acceptance, to help us navigate life’s challenges and enhance mental health.
I believe that creating a strong therapeutic relationship is essential to the success of the work and I aim to simplify and demystify the process. I offer a non-judgemental nurturing space to facilitate exploration and insight. We all have the capacity for healing but may need help at some points in our lives. I acknowledge that our stories and experiences are unique and require different ways of thinking about and tackling issues. I chose to train in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling which brings together a variety of approaches that can be tailored to your needs. This may involve exploring external pressures or looking at the past to gain insight into current thoughts, and relationship dynamics. I offer both long term and short-term therapy. The duration of the work will be determined by your needs and goals, which we will explore together. I offer an initial 15–20-minute conversation to talk through your requirements.
About me and my therapy practice
I am a business professional who has retrained as a psychotherapist. I originally worked in the corporate world understanding brands and companies’ cultures, creating strategies for communication and advertising. This work requires strong decision making and creative problem-solving skills. My responsibilities also included the development and coaching of employees to flourish in those organisations. This experience enables me to bring practical solutions, where relevant, to the therapy room.
Along side private practice I worked as a therapist in the charity sector supporting clients with a variety of needs, with specific focus on relationship issues.
I have a special interest in young people and worked for several years mentoring and supporting students (aged 16-18) at a 6th form college.
