About me and my therapy practice

My therapeutic work is client-centred with over 10 years of counselling experience with adults and children. I hold specialist experience and expertise within ASD (or Autism Spectrum Condition) and ADHD (or VAST- Variable Attention Stimulus Trait) particularly with women and adolescent girls who may have spent the majority of their lives 'masking', sometimes without realising.

I have worked in various roles within:

Education

National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC)

Place2Be (Improving Children's Mental Health in Schools)

Your Healthcare (working with children with Autism) 

Domestic Violence projects (Women's Aid) and 

Cruse Bereavement Care.

Fees

£50 per session via Zoom

Please note each session lasts 50 minutes

My first session

We'd start with an initial assessment for me to be aware of the reason(s) for you (or your young person) to want counselling and the nature of difficulties, as well as for you to ask questions.

I'll also talk through the process of counselling.

Namely:

I will not pressure you into talking

You can bring issues within your own pace

The process will be centred around your needs (hence the assessment process to identify your needs)

The counselling is confidential.

The only exemption being that if you are a danger to yourself or others in which case I would have to break confidentiality as per BACP therapeutic guidelines and Ethical Framework. This is standard practice and is part of my responsibility to you. I work within BACP's Ethical Framework.
