About me and my therapy practice

Often our inner voice, the voice that pops up when we haven’t achieved, haven’t completed, haven’t contacted or haven’t communicated is a harsh inner critic. Before I became a counsellor, undertook therapy and understood therapy, I had always imagined how life might be if that voice was kind, forgiving and full of love. Have you imagined that too?

My way of working is centered around the clients' needs. I can offer a blending of different therapeutic theories to help shed light on different times and aspects of your life. I can listen empathically, offer different perspectives and integrate your sessions with tools that can help you navigate today’s often fast paced and unpredictable world. Collaboratively, we can figure out how you might like to start moving forward in the world.

If you are looking for a more goal-focused therapy or exploration into a specific area I also offer a more CBT based approach which supports self-help and we can plan a schedule of therapeutic work within a set number of sessions and monitor/review your progress. 

Practice description

I believe that therapy isn’t necessarily about changing 'who we are' but more about getting to know 'who lies beneath'. By gaining a better understanding of who we are and what we’ve experienced, we can grow into accepting, loving and nurturing ourselves.

I can offer time-limited, short-term and long term therapeutic work with regular reviews. I offer a 30 minute free one-off consultation online or on the telephone and prior to our first formal session I email out a therapeutic contract outlining my policies and procedures and a document asking for client contact details/GP details which the client signs. I adhere to the BACP ethical framework.

The privilege I have as a therapist is being able to support, emotionally contain and be a participant in a client’s own self-discovery and actualisation. You are the expert of you, and I can offer therapeutic insight, tools and techniques, psycho education and a non-judgmental space for you to realise your own potential during the sessions.

My first session

I offer a free 30 minute consultation session either online or on the telephone so that the client and myself can see if we might work therapeutically together. In this shorter session I also ask some questions about the client's history and what has brought them to counselling.

The first session and subsequent sessions will cost £45. Details of confidentiality, risk assessment, payment procedures, cancellation policy, holidays and absences are outlined in my counselling contract which the client receives when we have agreed to work together.
