About me and my therapy practice

"The principle aim of psychotherapy is not to transport one to an impossible state of happiness, but to help (the client) acquire steadfastness and patience in the face of suffering. " - C.G. Jung.

Life can sometimes feel overwhelming and it's no surprise that many clients I've seen have expressed hope for a solution or quick fix to their problems. Though understandable, the unpredictability of life means that challenges are inevitable, and although I can't promise a quick fix, I can offer you the opportunity to unpack and explore these difficulties and help to better equip you to manage these challenges.

My therapeutic approach is integrative and relational - this means that I draw from various schools of thought and work in a way that is both flexible and client-led, enabling me to tailor my practice to suit your unique needs.

No two relationships are the same and whether it's with ourselves or with others, we are always in some form of relationship. The foundation of my work lies in understanding the impact of relationships in your life and using the relationship we build in therapy to collaboratively explore what difficulties you may be struggling with.

Practice description

I offer one-to-one, 50-minute sessions of brief/time-limited, or open-ended therapy to adults and young people.

I have worked with adults and young people from various backgrounds and life experiences. I also carry a personal awareness of how our differences may impact our experience and perspective of the world and our relationships. In therapy, I attempt to gain an understanding of the world from the client's perspective and create a space in which an individual feels able to explore whatever may be troubling them.

I have experience working with clients whose difficulties surround sexuality, gender identity and expression, relationships, anxiety, depression, abuse, trauma, PTSD, discrimination, religion and spirituality, among other struggles.

I have worked with charities offering brief and long-term counselling to adults and adolescents, and have also provided counselling with organisations offering holistic support for trans and/or non-binary people (who may/may not also identify as LGBQ+).

I am a qualified integrative relational therapist and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

My first session

I know first-hand that finding a counsellor you're comfortable with can be difficult, so I offer a free, 20-minute initial consultation before starting therapy. This is to allow you the space to determine whether I might be someone you'd like to work with, without any pressure to proceed with counselling.

This meeting also provides you with the opportunity to ask any questions you may have and enables me to gain some understanding of your unique needs alongside what hopes and expectations you may hold for therapy.
