About me and my therapy practice

I had many years of experience of working in social care settings with young people and adults of all ages who were facing challenging situations in their lives before I retrained as a counsellor/psychotherapist. 

I am interested in how our past - and present - experiences impact on the 'here and now' and influence how we feel, behave and interact in all parts of our lives.   

I am endlessly curious about people and have always enjoyed working with individuals who want to think about the issues that are affecting them.  You won’t be judged or criticised and you will be accepted and supported to understand yourself more fully.

Practice description

My aim is to offer a safe and welcoming space where  I will accept you as you are and encourage you to explore your own unique life experiences, learn more about yourself and what you want and need in your life.  I know that it can be very hard to open up and talk about how we feel and my intention is to provide a space where that feels possible for you.

I have experience of working with adults of all ages who are experiencing challenging situations and issues and I work at the pace that feels right for you.

My first session

I offer an initial session at a reduced fee where we can meet and find out a little about how we might work together.  We would then decide together how to go forward - you may wish to think about the experience before making a decision or you may wish to plan further sessions from there.  I would try to answer any questions and talk over any concerns that you may have.

Following that if we decide we would like to work together we would usually meet weekly for 50 minute sessions.  We will regularly review how we are working together and whether the 'fit' still feels right for you.
