About me and my therapy practice

I am an integrative counsellor who works with a range of modalities and techniques, adapting to meet your individual needs and preferences. This ensures we work together in the best way for you. 

How I work...

I work in a person centred manner using psychodynamic concepts and I incorporate elements of CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) and SFT (solution-focused therapy).

Whether you are seeking therapy to work through a present issue, an upcoming transition, to explore something in your past or to understand yourself better, I will work with you at your pace. 

I am empathic, warm and offer a safe, non-judgemental space for you to feel seen and heard. I feel strongly about working with people from all walks of life, helping you to work through any difficulties or issues you may have experienced, or be experiencing.

A little about me...

Coming from a movement and artistic background, I am passionate about working holistically focusing on the mind-body connection. I practice yoga, mindfulness and am particularly interested in breath work and the impact of this on the body.

I have experience working with adults of all ages suffering from all kinds of difficulties and I understand the mental health and wellbeing issues that you may consequently experience, both emotionally and physically.

I believe in our ability and inner desire to cultivate the best relationships and experiences for ourselves, and those around us. I am passionate about working with you to better understand yourself, your thoughts and your behaviours with the aim of improving the relationships in your life, be that with yourself or with others.

Practice description

I offer a free 15 minute introductory call in order for us to discuss what brings you to therapy, how I work and from there we can decide if it feels like a good fit for you.

Each counselling session is 50 minutes. For online sessions I use Whereby and Zoom.

I practise according to the BACP Ethical Framework. I am fully insured, comply with supervision requirements and engage in regular continued personal development.

My first session

Coming to therapy can be daunting, we will use the first session to discuss what brings you to therapy, what your expectations are and any goals that you may have.

It is an opportunity for us to get to know each other and discuss the best way in which we can work together. We will always work at your pace and I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
