About me and my therapy practice
I am a qualified psychodynamic and relationship counsellor with over 25 years experience, which includes counselling in Universities, Camden Women&Health, Relate and my own private practice.
I have a particular interest in helping people with relationship difficulties, family problems, adoption issues, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, low self esteem, identity, difficulties at work, OCD, ritualistic and compulsive behaviour patterns, anger management, self harm, sexual abuse, trauma and bereavement.
I offer counselling to individuals and couples either via video call or from comfortable counselling rooms in Oakham. I understand that it can feel difficult to seek help and I hope to make your appointments feel safe and comfortable and work at a pace that suits you.
I work in a relational way, which means we work together on building a therapeutic relationship where warmth and trust can develop. This relationship creates a secure environment from which to talk about and explore complex and painful thoughts, feelings and behaviors.
It is important that there is a good fit between you and your counsellor for a helpful and productive therapeutic relationship to develop, so I am very happy to talk with you over the phone about my experience and the way I work, with no charge and no obligation.
As a qualified counsellor and a registered member of the BACP I adhere to the Associations Code of Ethics, have regular supervision and participate in ongoing professional development.
