About me and my therapy practice

In life there will be times when you feel worried, sad, anxious, and depressed about your current situation. Or stuck and unhappy in life or in a relationship. We all need help and support in life at times. I offer a safe and confidential space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings, offer support, and tools to equip you towards a resolution and peace of mind.

I am a warm approachable and relational counsellor, I work sensitively and at a pace that best suits you. I work alongside my clients in partnership and aim to cultivate a strong therapeutic relationship. Our work together will be ethically and professionally conducted, confidential and with guaranteed anonymity. I work in a non-judgemental, compassionate and authentic way and in a comfortable environment. My focus in therapy is to empower and equip you with various resources to make the best choices and decisions to relief your distress. I also believe that therapy can support integration of mind, body and spirit/heart and assist in a more balanced sense of self. I work in an integrative way, simply meaning I will use a variety of theories and tools to work with you as a unique individual. I believe that no one therapeutic approach has all the answers and therapy should be tailored to meet everyone's individual needs. I aim to provide the right support in helping my clients to feel understood, less anxious, free and empowered to start moving forward with their lives. I look forward to hearing from you, feel free to call, text or email to arrange an appointment. If you would like to discuss your concerns or would like more information without any obligation, please do not hesitate to contact me on 07900 256868 or email in the box provided.
