About me and my therapy practice

I am an integrative counsellor which means that I use different interventions and approaches depending on the needs of each individual client.  I work with one to one with adults and can provide therapeutic support for people struggling with a wide range of issues including low mood, anxiety, relationship difficulties, stress or anything else that is impacting emotional wellbeing.   I help people find ways of making their difficulties feel more manageable and less overwhelming.  I have a particular interest in working with people with autistic spectrum conditions such as Asperger's and with their families and partners.

Practice description

I offer three options for therapy; face to face, walk and talk and online therapy (using Skype or Zoom).  A Walk and talk session is held outside while walking and is an opportunity to add movement into the session as a way of processing emotion.  These sessions take place on suitably timed routes in large local parks.  Finally the online therapy sessions offer accessibility for all regardless of location.  

My first session

In our first session we will take time to explore what you are looking for from counselling and identify what the aims of therapy will be.  I will explain how confidentiality in the counselling room works and outline what you can expect from me and in turn what I would expect from you as part of our therapeutic relationship.  My aim would be that you would leave the first session with a clear understanding of how we are going to work together and feeling that you have been listened to and understood.
