About me and my therapy practice
I am a naturally calm, empathic and whole-hearted individual that deeply cares about people from all backgrounds. When being with you, I am grounded in a humanistic, person-centred approach. I hold the belief that it is you (the client) that is the expert on their own life and that you have the innate power to heal and grow. It is my aim to offer a safe environment that helps you feel secure enough to build trust in the therapeutic relationship that we will create together. From this place of trust, your thoughts, feelings and emotions can be seen, heard and explored. I hope to always treat you with dignity and respect, listen to you without judgement and provide an empowering reflective space where we can work together on exploring whatever you choose to bring to a session. I will support you, as you arrive at your own understanding of what might be going on for you.
My training in integrative counselling can provide opportunities (if necessary) to blend in other effective approaches that may suit your unique individual needs. Such as, an attachment-based approach that can facilitate exploration of your emotional connections within intimate relationships. However, I will remain open minded and curious as evidence suggests that the most important factor for successful counselling is the connection between us.
I can offer face-to-face appointments from “The Therapy Quarters” counselling service in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Stoke-on-Trent. Please see the following link to take a look at the counselling rooms and what you can expect when you arrive: https://thetherapyquarters.com/therapy-rooms/. There is disabled access to the service via a ramp on the ground floor and accessible toilet facilities.
I can offer online and telephone sessions. You may feel that this offers you more anonymity, comfort or privacy than face-to-face counselling
I actively engage in ongoing professional development training to ensure my practice is safe, ethical and professional. I hold professional indemnity insurance and my work is supervised by two BACP approved supervisor.
I continue to work therapeutically across private, charitable and voluntary sectors with clients that have been affected by trauma, domestic violence and sexual abuse. I hold an extensive professional work history in supporting vulnerable people therapeutically with their mental health and wellbeing recovery.
I' am open to any queries you may have about the counselling service that I can offer you, and how this can be of help to you now.
