About me and my therapy practice

I am an integrative counsellor. I like to work with a person-centred foundation however I will draw on other methods of counselling to help find a style that best suits you and your needs. 

I am currently offering online and telephone counselling due to the current covid situation. I will however be working face to face again soon. I do offer sessions for children in their home. 

I work with both children (11 upwards) and adults and I have been working as a secondary school counsellor for a few years and this is an area I am particularly interested in. 

I started my counselling journey after my eldest son was in intensive care. I found there was little support available from people who understood or had experienced this themselves. I have a variety of knowledge including pain, depression, anxiety and many more and have done extra training in suicide and self harm. 

Practice description

I currently offer online counselling for both adults and children. I can work face to face in your home for children. 

 I am happy to do a first time half session for us to meet before we have a session. This would be at a reduced rate. 

I know how hard it can be to take that first step on your counselling journey and think it is important to find a counsellor that works for you and that you feel is right for you. Counselling is a very personal journey and it is important to feel connected to the person sharing that journey with you. 


My first session

I try to offer a kind, caring, non-judgemental and confidential listening ear that truly hears you. 

My first (full) session will be different from the continued sessions. I use this time to go over the contract and policies. I do try to send these out electronically prior to the first session to give you time to look through them and ask questions during our first session. 

I will ask a few questions during the first session for me to get a better understanding of where you are and how I can help you. I use this session to look at expectation and goals for our counselling journey. 

My sessions after this will be very client led and focused on what you choose to bring to our sessions.
