About me and my therapy practice
I am a qualified counsellor with a post graduate diploma and Masters in Psychosynthesis Psychology, working in private practice. I have worked with Cruse Bereavement Care for 5 years supporting clients with their grief and bereavement, I have also worked as a support worker with people who have acute mental illness.
In my private practice I work with clients to guide them on a journey of self discovery and self realisation, so that with awareness and understanding they can see their patterns and behaviours more clearly and make better choices for a more fulfilling life.
My holistic approach involves taking an energetic and spiritual perspective. I combine traditional talking therapy with, guided imagery, meditation, mindfulness, journaling, inner child work and somatic experience to help clients achieve awareness, emotional balance and freedom.
Working in partnership with my clients, I create a trusting, safe and supportive space to encourage and empower people towards discovery of their potential and their power through personal exploration and unfoldment.
Entering therapy requires commitment and trust, so choosing someone you can build a relationship with is really important. You need to feel safe and comfortable with your therapist and I use the first session as a consultation, not only to see whether I can help you, but also to see if you feel comfortable with me.
Working with the right person is vital if the therapy is going to be useful. I work with clients short term or long term on an open ended basis, with a commitment to weekly sessions. We can discuss which is the most suitable for you in your initial session. Regular sessions are 60 minutes and the cost is on a sliding scale.
I follow the BACP ethical framework and I am happy to show you evidence of professional training and insurance.
No matter what your personal struggle is, counselling and psychotherapy can help you to a greater mastery of who you are and relief from your symptoms. With awareness and insight, we gain power over the feelings that once held us captive
My first session
