About me and my therapy practice

It’s always good to talk but finding someone who it is easy to talk to can be difficult. That is when a counsellor can really help. I believe you will find me a good listener and someone who is warm, supportive and on your side. 

I work as an integrative counsellor. This means I have undertaken several forms of counselling training and can blend them together to produce the best results for my clients.  I can therefore help you explore what is causing the problems in your life and find a way forward you are most comfortable with. My most recent training is in EMDR, a therapy that works paticularly well for clients looking to find healing for past hurts and traumas.

The main idea behind integrative therapy is that you are unique, and what would work perfectly for you is not necessarily what would work for other people.

I work with individuals and couples and also provide supervision to other counsellors. Why not contact me to see if counselling will help with whatever symptom or situation you are currently facing? I offer a free initial telephone or Zoom consultation with no obligation so why not give me a call or contact me through my web site?

I am an experienced counsellor with over 12 years experience since completing my diploma training. I am member of the professional counselling organisation The British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and the Association of Christian Counsellors.

Practice description

Prior to the pandemic I was working from Delta House, Hockliffe Street, Leighton Buzzard but currently I am offering therapy online. Get in touch if you would like to discuss meeting face to face. 

It is preferable in we can meet on a weekly basis, at least initially, on the same day & at the same time each week if possible. However, we can be flexible if that is better for your situation.

I offer daytime appointments and rarely do evenings. I am available Thursdays and some other days during the week (not Friday or Saturday) . I may have time available on Sunday afternoons.

If you would like more information, please contact me or visit my website www.hopecounsellingservice.org.uk

My first session

I offer an initial free of charge short telephone/zoom consultation. This is an opportunity for you to ask questions and for me to find out more about you and how I can help. You will have the opportunity to find out more about me and the way that I work, in order to help you decide whether you feel comfortable working with me and whether counselling is right for you at this time.

Counselling can feel daunting for some people so I try to create a warm and accepting space in my counselling sessions, especially on the first few sessions, so you feel comfortable and can relax.

During our first full session we will spend time getting to know each other, discussing how we work together, how many sessions you would like to have (a set number or open ended). We will also begin to look at your history and some of the key events that have happened in your life. Of course, at first you may not feel ready or comfortable in discussing some memories or situations that are current, and that is perfectly fine with me. Some past experiences can be so traumatic that to think of them can trigger some bad reactions and feelings. I aim to be very sensitve to how you are feeling and reacting, and want you to feel comfortable in sharing. As counselling progresses I hope you will feel more comfortable.
