About me and my therapy practice

Therapeutic Counselling 

Psychology Bsc (Hons) Dip. Couns. Grad Cert in Couple counselling

Single counselling face to face and phone counselling

If you need help in changing your life, if life seems conflicting or you believe you have potential but the reality of your life doesn’t seem to correspond, or if you would like to work on your self-awareness to improve your life and mental health, I offer a safe and non-judgemental counselling that is honest and down to earth, using many different psychological tools, including looking at family patterns that are sometimes repeated during one’s life.  Self-worth and confidence building and looking at your place in the world is a subject that I can help you with. 

I have a degree in psychology and two diplomas in counselling and have worked for both Relate (couple counselling) and Mind (national agency for people who have mental health issues).

Practice description

The sessions are yours to express your personal concerns and what you would like and work on.  We can discuss patterns of behaviour, how that works for you, what you could do differently to make a better outcome.  I also listen to clients who are distressed or have had losses and are grieving.  Sometimes I offer homework (optional), so you can work on yourself with my support.  Looking at the dynamics between you and other people and work on relationships.  We can discuss what your future looks like and what you would want your life to be.  We can also discuss mental health issues as I have worked for Mind for the last four years.  But also I work with couples as I have worked for Relate.  My counselling is about work in a non judgemental way, supportive and having trust in me to be able to express yourself.  To work towards self-awareness and autonomy.  To help and support your life and find a healthier way of living.

My first session

My sessions are 50 minutes long, I am a member of the BACP and adhere to their governance concerning keeping my client's safe and informed with good boundaries and a will to help people with the issues they bring. I am mainly person centred in my therapy, but use many different theories to help my clients. We work together towards self-awareness and a clarity to ones life. I would ask you to initially fill some forms in with personal information and a statement from you that explains what you want to get out of our counselling and what you want to work on.
