About me and my therapy practice

My person centred approach is simple and affective, I am passionate about helping others which comes from a motivation of wanting to learn and share in mutually respectful relationships. I use active listening to seek a deep understanding of my clients perspective, feelings and emotions. I am able to accompany you and work with you to identify and manage the changes you want to make in your life. In time and with the openness gained by our client/counsellor relationship you can reveal new perspectives, self awareness and self healing.

Practice description

Many private counselling practices are named after their founder, which is great as it is in keeping with the therapist being the brand. I decided to name my practice Howlite Therapy to emulate the aims of my practice and approach to therapy. Howlite is a crystal that is said to calm communication, facilitate awareness and encourages emotional expression and teaches patience helping to ease rage, pain and stress.

I offer clients a calm atmosphere in which they can begin to understand, cope with and heal from incidents such as trauma, grief, mourning, PTSD, anxiety and depression. The objective of the therapeutic process is to bring to the forefront one’s inner strength and slowly rebuild self.

My first session

I offer a free 30 minute consultation where I establish your contact details, presenting issues and availability. If you decide to move forward and go ahead with counselling sessions we can book your first session. Your first session will be a chance for us to discuss the counselling agreement, boundaries, your presenting issues in more detail and begin to shape outcomes you may have in mind.
