About me and my therapy practice

Hello and thanks for checking out my listing, if you are reading this, I expect you are seeking help but maybe unsure where to start. 

My listing should contain all the information you need to help you make an informed choice,, however if there is anything not covered please feel free to reach out to me for further information.

So whats brought you here?

Maybe you are wanting help finding answers, guidance or some direction in your life. I understand that reaching out can be scary, especially if you have never had counselling before or don't know where to start so well done on taking that first step.

I believe that you have within you all you need to thrive but sometimes finding answers and making changes can be difficult if you do not know where to look, so together we will move at a pace that you are comfortable with and begin to explore what has brought you to counselling and what you hope to achieve during our time together. I always strive to create a safe and supportive environment for my clients to explore their thoughts and feelings without fear of judgment The process has no time limit and will take as long as need be.

I have experience working both long term and in time sensitive ways with clients so can tailor what we do to suit your needs.

I have undertaken additional training to help support those impacted by sexual and domestic violence as well as problematic substance use, I also have ties to the military and all that life encompasses.

Practice description

Using an integrative approach, i can help you to navigate life's challenges, make sense of events and begin to build healthy strategies to best support your wants and needs throughout our time together and beyond. I work holistically to help you gain clarity and understanding in the hope this will enable you to find the answers you seek.

This may include working with metaphors, helping you understand how to regulate your breathing and your nervous system and guided imagery as well as exploring thought patterns and offering psychoeducation, these are just some of the ways my clients have been supported with issues including anxiety, depression, life altering medical diagnosis and those who have experienced complex trauma, domestic violence and sexual abuse.

My first session

Once you contact me I will arrange an initial 30 minute free face to face appontment . Our first session is an opportunity for you to explore what you would like to achieve in therapy and to ask any questions.
