About me and my therapy practice

Why therapy outdoors?  For some working in a room feels too hemmed in and intense, for others working online doesn't suit them and for others there will be desire to be in/with nature.  

I find being outdoors in a  green space can help me feel calmer and more connected to the world around me, so why not bring the therapy room outdoors?  Observing and  being in nature can a source of comfort and inspiration, it can bring another layer to the counselling work as we encounter obstacles, notice change around us or find our attention drawn to a particular feature.  Being able to move as you talk is often grounding and calming, helping us to self-regulate which is particularly useful when we may experience anxiety or dysregulation.  

I find Eco-therapy a good way of working with Climate Anxiety/Distress.

 We will meet in a park (I currently meet at the Downs and Eastville Park)   You can choose the route, or if you prefer, I can guide us.  Some people like to do the same route each week, but others enjoy the freedom to go in a different direction, and explore off the path.  Some sessions may be spent sat down. 

These sessions would also be suitable for those with babies or young children, please get in touch to discuss this if you think it would be a useful option for you.  

We will have an initial session to try it out, explore what has brought you to counselling and what you would like to gain.  If you decide that it is not the right fit or the right time for you, there is no obligation to continue. 

My first session

I offer an introductory session, this is 50 minutes long and is charged at £50.  This is an opportunity for me to understand what brings you to counselling, what you would like to focus on or work towards changing and explore how we might work together.  It is also a chance for you to get to know me, decide if you think it would be a good fit.  We would do this while walking in your chosen venue.  If you decide not to proceed, that is absolutely fine, there is no obligation to continue.

About me and my therapy practice

Counselling can help us 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 together we will think about what might be most helpful for you to focus on.

I am an Integrative Counsellor so make use of a range of models and theories.  I am primarily Person-centred, so the process and relationship are central to how I work.  I also draw from CBT, 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 have found writing creatively and therapeutically useful and have seen many clients use it effectively between sessions and after our counselling work has come to an end. 

I also work Outdoors offering Eco-therapy.


Practice description

I have been a Counsellor for 11 years, prior to that I was a youthworker and worked in a range of charities.  As a Counsellor I have worked with a wide age range, as well as continuing to work with young people and students.  I have experience with a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, trauma, disordered eating, relationship difficulties, Climate Anxiety, fertility issues, low self-worth, body image, sexuality and gender.  I am alert to the impact of privilege and the complexity within this, and seek to work in an anti-discriminatory way.  

I work from a Body Positive perspective and within an Intuitive Eating model.  So if eating/food/body was an issue for you, I would be interested to understand what messages you were carrying around food/weight, how you might find your way through that to self-acceptance, and be able to tune in to your body's needs more accurately.  

My first session

I offer an initial assessment session which is an opportunity to understand you, what has brought you here and what you would like to gain through counselling. It is also a chance for you to get to know me a bit and ask any questions you may have. This is a full session charged at my normal rate to ensure that there is sufficient time and holding. There is no obligation to continue after this if you do not think it is a good fit for you.  This could be online or in-person.
