About me and my therapy practice
I gained my counselling diploma in 2021 from Glasgow Clyde college, studying an integrated approach. Since qualifying, I have supported people who are experiencing stress, trauma, abuse and emotional issues. I am also experienced with supporting people who are grieving.
As a BACP registered counsellor, personal and professional development is an ethical part of working with clients. My latest certificate was with the Advanced understanding of working with the Polyvagal Theory and applying it to sessions, this enhanced my awareness of the stress reactions and how the body protects itself during signals of danger, helping me to support clients experiencing trauma.
To protect your privacy I am registered with the information commissioner's office, as a data officer, to keep your personal details safe, protected and only for a limited time period.
My way of supporting you is to be person-centred, while adapting to your needs by using other techniques that suit what you are presenting and are specific to you. By listening, understanding and gaining a sense of your perspective leading onto a connection. The relationship is key in counselling and forms the foundation of trust. Feeling understood, heard and accepted supports you in being able to talk about your feelings without being judged. This deepen your own understanding and self-awareness, enables self-acceptance. Through awareness, change is possible and you are the best person to know what is the right decision for you. I will support you through this process so that you can make your own changes.
You are your own expert of yourself.
All sessions last for 50 minutes and can be via the telephone, online meeting, walking outdoors in green or blue spaces, or face-to-face in an office space.
The duration of sessions are flexible.
After our initial call, if you feel you would like to start your sessions, I will send you a contract to let you make your own informed decision and give consent to the terms.
If you are unsure of anything, please contact me and I will discuss it further with you.
My first session
Our first session is a free introductory one, for you to sense if I am the right person for you. This lasts for 15-20 minutes, via telephone or online.
This is a time for you to feel that you can talk about whatever is causing you concern. To feel heard, and understood.
The focus is on connecting with you and getting a sense of what you are experiencing.
Understanding your emotions, and how it feels can give a sense of relief, that you are able to be yourself and it is ok not to feel ok.
This is the start of your journey and you are not alone.
