About me and my therapy practice
If you're looking for therapy you're looking for an opportunity to work out how to deal with thoughts and feelings and to make a positive change in your life and relationships.
As a counsellor with experience of working with addiction, relationships, trauma, abuse, anxiety and depression I can help you move towards finding a fresh perspective and a deeper understanding of the emotions and situations which are causing distress in your life.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and a Relate trained couple and family therapist. I attend regular clinical supervision and continue to develop the training and skills which form my Continuing Professional development, as required by the BACP.
I have 18 years' experience of working as a counsellor, I am qualified in Person Centred Therapy, Narrative Therapy and Relationship Therapy. I have also worked with Emotionally Focussed Therapy and Brief Intervention Therapy.
I draw on all my experience and training in my work and, as every situation and person is unique, I will aim to provide the optimum therapeutic conditions in each situation, whatever you bring to counselling.
In accordance with BACP protocol, at present I am available for online and telephone sessions only. If you are not familiar with online interaction I will aim to make it as stress free as possible.
My first session
Our first session is an opportunity to meet one another, to explore expectations and complete an assessment to help me understand your needs. It is also an opportunity for you to meet me to be sure that I am the right counsellor for you.
I would hope that by the end of our first session you will feel I have listened to you with understanding and empathy and that we have begun the process of building a therapeutic relationship.
