About me and my therapy practice
I am an Accredited and Registered therapist with 15 years of experience of working with a diverse range of people on many different types of issues. My aim is to provide a safe, gentle, non-judgemental and confidential space in which you can explore the issues that bring you to counselling and develop the foundations of a relationship that will build your confidence to attend to, understand and resolve the thoughts and feelings that may have been causing you difficulty and distress.
The Humanistic model of therapy that I use encourages you to work on what you decide is most important, at the pace and in the way that works best for you, providing a balance of support and the necessary challenge to allow changes. In practice this means that you can stay more in control and that we have a variety of ways to explore issues apart from just talking. Sometimes a simple list or diagram can bring clarity and insight that leads to change. It may be that journal writing, doodling, drawing or other creative activities can help if you feel words aren't enough, and tools like Mindfulness and visualisations can provide calm and soothing as well as new ways of thinking about things.
The choice is yours to work in the ways you are most comfortable with and I hope that you will feel secure and supported during sessions in my consulting room in a small tranquil garden.
Please get in touch if you would like to arrange a free assessment session and I'm happy to have an initial phone conversation if you would find it helpful.
