About me and my therapy practice

I offer a safe, warm and welcoming place, away from the distractions of everyday life, somewhere to stop, think and re-assess: somewhere to be authentic. The Quiet Place is all about bearing witness to your story, a chance to have your voice heard, without judgement and in confidence. 

I work within the Person Centred approach and am an integrative counsellor, which means my work is client-focused and client-led, and I am able to draw on different modalities, or theories, to best help my clients. 

I  also incorporate creative therapy for those who find it helpful.

Practice description

I am a qualified counsellor and a member of the BACP, and work within their Ethical Framework. I have a supervisor, who ensures I am able to offer the best possible counselling, and I am fully insured.

As a counsellor, I offer you the chance to bring whatever issues you feel you would like to explore, and I will listen without judgement and in confidence. It is quite different to talking with friends or family. Together we work to help you find your own way through your difficulties. Counselling is not about offering advice or answers: it is about helping you discover your own way so you can live your best life.

I am very happy to offer face to face counselling whenever possible, but I have extensive experience of working via Zoom if this proves to be more suitable for us.

(N'hésitez pas à me donner un coup de fil, si vous cherchez une thérapeute qui parle français.)

My first session

I would like you to feel confident in your choice of counsellor, so I offer all my clients an initial half-hour session for £20, where we have a chance to meet and begin to know each other. We look at the therapeutic contract, which explains how I work and how we will manage our sessions. You have the chance to ask any questions and are free to have a think about whether you might like to begin counselling with me.

Availability

At present, I have availability in the day on Mondays and Fridays; in the evening I have no free sessions on a Friday.

About me and my therapy practice

I offer counselling for couples experiencing difficulties in their relationship and work within the Emotionally Focused Therapy framework. This offers both support to my clients and a way to restructure their relationship, providing a warm and safe place where they can explore, reach out to each other and reconnect. 

We work together to enhance accessibility, responsiveness and engagement between partners; we look to 'learn a new dance' and move forward.
