About me and my therapy practice
My practice is based on a Person-centred experiential model, which focuses on you as the expert on your own unique human experience. You may be feeling overwhelmed, stressed, anxious, depressed, traumatised or grieving the loss of a loved one. Whatever the problem may be that is having a negative effect on your feelings and the way you are living your life; I aim to provide a safe space and guidance for you to explore your process and emotions, to promote your self-empowerment.
Following 30 years of working with individuals and families as a Nurse and Midwife in the NHS, I wanted to explore the power of empathy within a trusting relationship. Along with my own life experiences, person-centred experiential counselling provided me with the foundations I needed to help support my clients towards positive change and personal growth. I feel I have developed my own self-awareness and intuition that helps me to be present and truly honor the uniqueness of the individual, by listening and empathizing with my client’s sense of self. Also, connecting with my own sense of what my client is feeling in the moment.
If you feel you need help and support with anything that is affecting your mental well being, I can support you. I am not an expert in any mental health conditions. However, my previous professional background is beneficial in understanding and working alongside the medical model. I believe guiding your awareness to help you to look beyond the condition and what is going on emotionally for you can help you towards positive change.
