About me and my therapy practice
Hello, thank you for reading my profile!
I offer a relationship-based style of counselling and psychotherapy, supporting adults to develop stronger, more supportive relationships with other people and with aspects of themselves. I provide short-term counselling and longer-term psychotherapy for anyone who is struggling or stuck, and wants to start feeling better.
Sometimes it can be hard to find words to explain how we feel, and that's okay with me. We'll work together to get a sense of what's happening, and explore what feels right, as well as what feels wrong.
I believe in honest communication, so you can tell me exactly what you think or feel - no judgement here! If you choose to work with me, I also commit to being open and honest. I'll listen and support you, then together we'll explore your next steps forward.
I am trained at Postgraduate level, and I hold a research MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy from the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute and Staffordshire University. My research interest is chronic pain and the impact of supportive relationships, so I am constantly updating my knowledge in this area, collaborating with other health professionals and deeply curious about my clients' experience.
I'm passionate about the benefits of counselling. My work with MIND and the NHS has built experience in supporting people with a range of difficulties, emotional and physical. I am also a therapeutic parent, so I get how hard it can be to care for ourselves and manage the struggles of others who we love.
I'm a relational integrative therapist, and I love getting to know my clients as real people with unique stories. I aim to support you as a whole person, exploring past and present relationships, your difficulties and your strengths.
I like to make use of all the natural senses with my clients. Creatively exploring how we make sense of the world around us (and inside us) can make therapy a deeper, less scary, and fulfilling experience.
My first session
It can feel hard to pick up the phone or make contact, especially when you're hurting or feeling distressed. You are welcome to leave me a message or email me with any questions.
I start by offering a free phone consultation lasting about 20 minutes. This gives us a chance to chat about what you hope to gain from counselling and ask me any questions, without pressure.
If you are ready to go ahead, we'll arrange to meet for a first 50 minute session. After that, we usually meet at the same time each week, either at my clinic in Mansfield Woodhouse or online via Zoom.
Our first sessions will help give us a clearer picture of how we can work together, working always at your pace.
