About me and my therapy practice
Hello, I listen to and help adults and children over the age of 16 process many kinds of stressful events, difficulties, loss or chronic trauma etc. I am relational in my work and feel that offering an empathic and respectful space for people to share things at their own pace is the basis of effective counselling. It's a privilege to see clients move forward after facing difficulties which have left them feeling unsure of themselves or overwhelmed. Together we can explore how it feels to be you, the issues causing you difficulities or challenges and what changes, if any, you may wish to implement.
My way of working is to be wholly accepting of you and be alongside you as you navigate life's ups and downs. I offer long-term or short-term counselling, depending on your requirements and am available for online counselling on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for clients from across the UK. I also work face to face at The Ashcroft Therapy Centre, Deddington, Oxfordshire on Thursday 2.30pm - 8.30pm for clients local to Banbury, Bicester and Oxford.
My first session
If you're interested in getting in touch, I offer an initial free chat on the phone as a first step in helping you decide if it feels right talking to me. This session is where the relationship of trust going forward begins to form, as well giving you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about counselling. After this, when we first meet online or face to face, I will continue to build your client profile, listening to your needs and aims for counselling to ensure I'm focused on your needs going forward. I look forward to hearing from you and reply to messages promptly.
