About me and my therapy practice

Life can sometimes be so complex and difficult that we do not always feel able to sort it out and get back to feeling "normal again". The complexity of life and the hardships that some people have to endure has always fascinated me, and having experienced many personal losses and life changing events myself, my passion has grown, and I would like the opportunity to "make a difference" and support those when it is most needed.

Working in my current work environments I understand how the demands of daily life and major life events such as a Bereavement, Domestic Violence, Physical/Sexual abuse,or divorce can leave us feeling overwhelmed, confused or even just sad.

I work with a person-centred approach to Counselling which means I believe you are the expert on your life. You can talk over any issue(s) openly and honestly, so you feel heard and understood and most importantly you will learn to articulate what you are feeling in a way that gives you the clarity needed to resolve any issue(s) and the strength to move forward with your life.

I NOW OFFER A.C.T Therapy, what is this ?

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a form of talk psychotherapy which uses mindfulness as one of its main tools.

At the heart of ACT is the goal of helping you live a more meaningful and productive life by developing what it refers to as “psychological flexibility”.

This is essentially about learning to accept what you can’t control, and then recognising and committing to taking the actions that will improve your life and moods.

ACT therapy is unique in that it can be offered as either a short-term therapy or long-term therapy, depending on what your requirements are.
