About me and my therapy practice
When you are looking for therapy, finding the right therapist is the most important step. I qualified as a Person Centred Counsellor in 2008.
Working from my own therapy room which I have designed with you, the client, in mind, I have created a space that is welcoming and calm. I offer a confidential, compassionate and friendly approach to therapy. You will feel safe to explore feelings in a non judgemental, empathic environment.
You might want to understand yourself on a deeper level, or may use therapy as an ongoing way to maintain you happiness and well-being. It is not always easy to face difficulties and find ways to resolve them. The therapeutic journey will help you find ways to understand yourself that will bring about the changes which then help you to be positive, fulfilled and able to manage your own way of being.
The therapeutic process can help you to grow in times of anxiety and uncertainty. I have studied many differing modalities over the years, and use an approach that includes aspects of these within my practice including solution focused, trauma informed, solution focused, maintaining a person centred approach at the heart of all I do, putting you at the centre of the therapeutic journey.
The relationship between therapist and client is an important factor is facilitating change and I offer an environment that is non-judgemental, inclusive and empathic. I have completed online and telephone counselling training, Over the years, I have worked with people of all ages from children to older adults, from different backgrounds and cultures, each with their own individual experiences.
I offer ongoing support, short and long term counselling and motivational sessions. These take place at times to suit you, weekly through to monthly sessions. When you contact me we can talk about the therapy that will work for you.
