About me and my therapy practice
I have a special interest in women's issues of all ages from young women setting out in life, juggling career or family demands to those navigating their way through the menopause, and beyond.
Perhaps you are questioning who you are as you struggle with hurtful family issues, relationship breakdown, past trauma or children leaving home? Are career changes, loneliness, regret or anger creating anxiety, leaving you ruminating and in deep distress and pain? Menopausal changes or living with a bereavement and sense of loss can feel powerfully overwhelming.
You may be feeling stuck, wondering how you got here and where to go next? Sometimes we feel empty and directionless as situations evolve around us, imposing unwanted changes. I understand how significant life events can be profoundly challenging, making the future feel frighteningly uncertain.
Developing self-esteem, confidence and finding out who you are, is often a pivotal feature of the therapy.
As well as individual therapy, I offer safe, skilled and compassionate Couple Therapy, facilitating a greater understanding of what underlies the conflicts in your relationship; ways to improve meaningful communication; deepen intimacy and express your true feelings comfortably so that 'you can be you' as both an individual and as a part of a couple. (Ninety minute couple therapy sessions fee: £110; Seventy-five minute couple therapy session: £100; Individual 50-minute sessions: £70)
I would love to walk with you, supporting you to find choices and meaning where neither seemed possible. We can figure out together how to move into your future with confidence. I work with warmth, honesty and compassion, providing a safe space for you.
I enjoy working online, making therapy easily accessible wherever you are. I currently have availability for online sessions only.
I offer individual one-to-one therapy for adults 21+. I also offer 75 or 90 minute couple therapy sessions for anyone wanting to improve, grow and develop their relationship.
I hold a Level 4 Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling, Levels 1 & 2 training in Couple Therapy, Certificates in Counselling Studies and Counselling Skills, a B.Soc.Sci Degree in Social Work and Psychology as well as many years in education as a teacher, a Special Educational Needs practitioner and a lecturer. My experience covers working in IAPT for the NHS, The Women's Consortium and Help Counselling Agency.
I work with warmth and compassion to understand your inner world using an integrative approach, tailoring the therapy to suit what works best for you and the issues you bring. We might explore how past experiences and ways of coping are impacting on your present concerns but our focus will remain with what you are struggling with today. We will seek to change what can be changed and grow around what cannot.
My first session
If my page resonates with you, I warmly invite you to email me to book your free 15-minute online or telephone consultation to get a sense of how we might work together. It's so important to find a therapist you click with!
This is also an opportunity to share something of what brings you to therapy, to ask any questions and to understand a bit more about what I can offer you.
There is absolutely no pressure to book an appointment but should you decide to go ahead, we will find a mutually convenient weekly time for your therapy sessions. Once payment has been made by bank transfer, your place is secured and I will email you a confirmation with my Welcome Pack containing a therapy consent form.
