Availability

Welcome. Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile. 

hi  offer both long term and short term counselling. I do not ask clients to commit to any number of sessions. 

I currently am taking new clients for face to face and online (various day and times available please contact me for availability). I work with both adults and children (11 upwards). 


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 enjoy working creatively and understand that sometimes we don't have the words to describe what is happening or us or how we feel. 

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

I also have experience of working with Tourette's and the journey for diagnosis. 

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, grief, depression, anxiety and many more and have done extra training in suicide and self harm. 

Practice description

I work with a variety of counselling methods however I aim to provide a warm, friendly, non judgemental space for you to be yourself. 

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 session will be different from the continued sessions as 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.
