About me and my therapy practice

Do you suffer with anxiety, depression, guilt or shame?

Do you feel isolated because of a breakdown in family relationships, separation or divorce, betrayal by friends or estrangement from community?

Do you need to recover from the impact of domestic abuse?

Are you suffering from post traumatic stress/post traumatic stress disorder?

Perhaps major life changes have left you feeling lost, stuck, confused, distressed and ashamed?

I am experienced in working with those who are distressed due to displacement, loss, trauma and abuse as well as adults who have suffered bereavement be it through death, divorce or broken relationships. Many of my counselling clients have suffered with anxiety and depression brought about by different difficulties in their lives, while others have struggled with symptoms of PTS/PTSD.

I am also experienced in working with clients who struggle with the strangulating effects of guilt and shame, as well as isolation, displacement, cultural issues, faith, diversity and a crisis of identity.

In addition to working 1:1, I also run group therapy  deliberately kept small to a maximum 6 participants.

I also work with couples and adult family members whose relationship is in crisis or those wanting to enhance the quality of their relationship.

In our sessions, you will feel seen and heard because we would work in ways that suit your preferences.

If you would like to also work on practical goals such as life or career choices, as a qualified personal and professional development coach, I am well placed to work with you there too.

Practice description

My way of working is a trauma-informed person-centred approach integrated with pluralistic principles, psychodynamic concepts and psychoeducation. 

I work holistically and relationally with the whole person - a humanistic model that facilitates growth. 

I believe each person has the resources within themselves to grow and resolve their difficulties, given the right environment so I work collaboratively with clients to work through their difficult issues by providing the appropriate environment.

My first session

The next step would be to arrange an initial session. This is where we explore where you are, what you’d like to get out of therapy and to get a feel as to whether we feel we are a good fit to work together. You can contact me to arrange a mutually convenient appointment and fees.

At the end of that first session, you can decide whether or not you want to continue the work with me and how frequently. Or you could take some time to think about it and come back to me.

If you need clarification of anything, please feel free to ask. Every question is welcome! And so are you!

About me and my therapy practice

As a counsellor/psychotherapist, my way of working is a trauma-informed person-centred approach integrated with pluralistic principles, psychodynamic concepts and psychoeducation.

I work holistically and relationally with the whole person - a humanistic model that facilitates growth.

I believe each person has the resources within themselves to grow and resolve their difficulties, given the right environment so I work collaboratively with clients to work through their difficult issues by providing the appropriate environment.

I have experience in working with individual adult clients, couples/relationships/families as well as group therapy.

As a supervisor, my aim is to facilitate your reflection on your practice, supporting you in your work with your clients as well as your own wellbeing and professional development.

Practice description

I see my role as a supervisor as one of working collaboratively with you to facilitate your reflection on your work and your congruence in it, underpinned by my person-centred and pluralistic philosophy to life and practice.

Through the supervision process and the activities within it, I expect that my supervisees will increasingly bridge gaps (where relevant) in their understanding between theory and practice, reflect on their work and review alternative perspectives, take fresh ideas back into their client work, wrestle with and probably untangle some ethical dilemmas, feel refreshed and reinvigorated in themselves, and grow both professionally and personally.

In my experience as a supervisee, when the balance between my client’s welfare and my own wellbeing/personal and professional development have been in harmony, I have experienced supervision as being positive: this is what I hope to offer to my supervisees.

My first session

If, following our email correspondence, we agree to work together, I will then send you some onboarding emails which will include practical information you might need as well as a working agreement and consent request for you to review.

We could also use the first session as an opportunity to explore what it is you’d like out of supervision and to get a sense as to whether we feel we are a good fit to work together.

In the session, we will be working with whatever it is you want to focus on after clarifying/renegotiating aspects of the working agreement to suit us both (where relevant).

At the end of that first session, we can decide whether or not we wish to continue to work together. Or you could take some time to think about it and come back to me.

Just like counselling/psychotherapy, the supervisory relationship is vital. Therefore I like us to factor in a review after our first 3 sessions together to determine how comfortable both parties feel regarding continuing working together.

The next step is for you to send me a message to arrange that initial session.
