About me and my therapy practice
Making the first move to see a counsellor can feel like a big step, especially if this is the first time you've done it. Perhaps you feel like you’re worrying more than usual at the moment? Or maybe there is a specific issue on your mind that you can't seem to get past. Perhaps you've had enough of feeling anxious, or you're feeling low and 'stuck'.
As your counsellor I will support you to explore your feelings and experiences without judgement or criticism but with warmth, kindness and understanding. When we have the opportunity to share how we feel in a safe, confidential environment it can help us gain a better understanding of ourselves and our relationships, it can help us to develop a toolkit of coping strategies to deal with times when things get tough as well as helping us develop our true potential to lead a more fulfilling life.
I have a particular interest in working with people who struggle with anxiety, low self-esteem, perfectionist tendencies as well as clients who have had suffered trauma and abuse in childhood and parents and carers of people struggling with eating disorders.
I am a qualified integrative counsellor which means that I can draw from a number of different approaches to tailor our sessions around you. I work relationally which is underpinned by the belief that the strength of our therapeutic relationship is one of the most important aspects of reaching a successful outcome in counselling.
My first session
First sessions can sometimes seem daunting but there is nothing you need to prepare in advance. It will simply involve you telling me about what brought you to therapy and us discussing some ideas around what may be helpful. After this you can decide, in your own time, if you think we could work together.
