About me and my therapy practice
Counselling can help us both get through tremendously difficult times in our lives but also create longer term change by deepening our self - awareness, bring insight into certain behaviours and building our resilience. You will receive a warm, empathic welcome, I will listen closely to your story without judgment and we will decide together if/ how we might work together. I am an Integrative Counsellor so make use of a range of models and theories. I use some CBT tools, Transactional Analysis and I find thinking about our systems and the people/ society around us to be very useful. Depending on you I may suggest some creative tools, for example, creative writing or sketching. I find writing incredibly useful and have seen many clients use it effectively between sessions and after our counselling work has come to an end.
I have availability on a Monday pm and Tuesday daytime.
I really wanted to make counselling more accessible for those with babies and young children so I now offer Walking Therapy. We will meet in a park (currently Oldbury Court/Snuff Mills) and walk around the park as baby/ babies are soothed in the buggy or sling. You can expect the same level of attentive listening as you would get if we were meeting indoors. Similarly it is your space and time to focus on what you need, it may be you think you may have post-natal depression, or would like to explore the impact of becoming a parent has had on your identity or relationship. Or you may be seeking support with something entirely separate to being a parent.
Another advantage to Walking Therapy is being outdoors in a gorgeous green space, this can be liberating and a source of comfort and inspiration. These sessions are primarily aimed at parents/ carers with babies, however if you think this approach would particularly suit you, please do get in touch.
