About me and my therapy practice

As a fully qualified Person-centred counsellor I work closely within the realities each client is living. I hold a strong ethos that every client is unique, irrespective of diagnosis or life challenges, and I believe that every client can find self-acceptance and change through therapy.

Practice description

I predominantly work online or via telephone sessions as this allows clients the security of their own home and removes barriers of travel or distance when engaging in therapy.​

I have worked with clients experiencing many of life's challenges or dark places, depression, grief, anxiety, low moods, and stresses and have worked with complex mental health diagnosis and trauma; this includes vulnerable offenders and those accessing mental health services.

All emotions are welcome within the therapeutic space. I feel that facilitating the space for a client to be real, within their process, and received in their authenticity by the therapist is what awards the opportunity for self-exploration and growth.

My first session

Within each counselling/psychotherapy session we will work in collaboration within what you choose to bring to the space. Recognizing this is "your" space to explore and address any uncomfortable spaces you may hold within your emotional or thought spaces within the past, present or future. ​

It is recommended that those embarking upon counselling would have a minimum of 6 sessions which would be reviewed within the therapeutic process. Long term sessions are decided by the client due to the nature of what is being covered in this space. 

Our first session together would allow space to feel into how therapy would work and if a client feels this is what they wish to embark upon.
