About me and my therapy practice
In life we can sometimes experience difficult feelings or situations that we need to make sense of. This may be in relation to loss, bereavement, trauma, relationships or many other things that can occur in our lives. I can offer a safe, confidential, non judgemental space to help you to explore your concerns whilst developing a better understanding of yourself. I offer short term or longer term Counselling/Psychotherapy.
I seek to offer a therapeutic relationship which is ethical, professional and empathic. I work using an Integrative model which includes aspects of different theoretical approaches, mainly person centred, humanistic, existential and solution focused, but drawing on many other approaches to meet individual need. The therapeutic relationship is paramount and I aim to offer an authentic, client centred environment. I am fully insured and supervised. I obtained my Advanced Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling in 2006. I qualified as a Nurse in 1996.
I have an extensive range of experience working in different settings, Psychology department, GP practice, Bereavement services, Hospice and Critical Care Rehabilitation. My work involves offering support to Children(13 years and over), Young People and Adults. I also continue in my role as a Specialist Critical Care nurse offering psychological support to patients following a period of Critical illness, which may involve symptoms of PTSD, anxiety, depression and coping with huge life adjustments. I work from different settings, one of the therapy rooms is in a home environment, the other being in a holistic setting with other practitioners.
It can be a difficult process to explore our thoughts and feelings and experience them intensely. It is essential that you feel at ease and able to talk openly to your therapist. I will listen to you and we can work together to enable you to find your meaning.
