About me and my therapy practice

I offer person-centred counselling for a range of issues, specialist bereavement counselling, LGBTQ+ and neurodiversity affirming counselling and HAES/IE informed counselling. I work online and via telephone throughout the UK and some other countries by individual arrangement.

My work is relational and trauma informed. I support people with many issues including depression, anxiety, stress, work-place bullying, mental health issues, childhood trauma, chronic illness and relationship issues.

I have personal and professional experience of suicide bereavement and work with complex bereavements such as suicide, unexpected loss, and multiple bereavements.

I work with LGBTQ+ people and I am kink, BDSM and polyamory friendly. I work from a Health at Every Size/(HAES) and Intuitive Eating (IE) informed way with self-esteem, body image and healing from diet culture. I work with neurodivergent (ADHD/autistic) people and those who are exploring neurodivergent identity.

I have experience of and enjoy working with other therapists and therapists-in-training. My qualifications and memberships are generally accepted by course providers.

Person-centred counselling is based on the belief that we all have an innate capacity for healing and that when we are struggling with life’s challenges a skilled, caring and facilitative counselling relationship can support us in this. Working from the person-centred model means that I will support your own healing journey rather than advise or analyse you.

I am interested in the potential for growth during life’s toughest challenges. I also resonate with the challenges of overcoming childhood issues such as low self-esteem, lack of confidence and negative self-image, challenging core beliefs that we are not worthy, and developing our own skills of self-compassion and new ways of caring for the self. 

Practice description

I am based in Cumbria/Edinburgh and I currently offer online and telephone counselling. I am flexible around how often, and how long you would like to come for counselling, I also welcome returning clients. Sessions usually last an hour, although if you have a special requirement I may be able to be flexible.

Finding the right therapist can be difficult, particularly for people with minority identities and is often about finding the right ‘fit’ of traits/personality. I know how important this is so if my profile appeals then please get in touch. I am happy to answer any questions you may have either about person-centred counselling generally or what I can offer. I offer a free informal telephone consultation so you can find out more.

I am continually expanding my knowledge base both for personal growth and to deepen my practice. Some areas that resonate with me are self-compassion, holistic health, eastern philosophy/spirituality, mindfulness, intuitive eating/HAES, body image work, women's empowerment, the mind/ body connection, connection to nature, and somatic/embodied practices.

My first session

Your first session with me will be a chance for you to begin to talk about the issues that are bringing you to counselling. There is some minimal paperwork at the beginning which takes about 10 minutes. I will then begin the process of listening to your story, to understand your unique experiences and learn how I can best support you.

I do my best to make sure you feel safe and supported so you can feel comfortable to share your personal information. You don't have to talk about anything that you don't want to. Particularly in first sessions you may need to get used to me and find out whether you feel safe to share sensitive issues, and I respect this. I offer a combination of deep supportive listening and therapy, as well as giving you information that might support your wellbeing such as advice around mental health.

Abuse, ADD / ADHD, AIDS/HIV, Anger management, Anxiety, Autism spectrum / Aspergers syndrome, Bereavement, Cancer, Chronic fatigue syndrome / ME, Depression, Disability, Health related issues, Identity issues, Loss, Personal development, Post-traumatic stress, Redundancy, Relationships, Self esteem, Sex-related issues, Sexual identity, Sexuality, Spirituality, Stress, Trauma, Women's issues, Work related issues
