About me and my therapy practice

Hello, a little bit about me, and my approach. 

As person-centred, I hold the ethos that the individual has the answers within them. Yet, I understand, that it’s not always easy to hear or connect to this inner knowledge or direction. It is often silenced, or has never truly been heard. However, throughout my client work and own personal experience I’ve found that the human encounter with somebody who is genuinely and deeply understanding, can support the journey towards wellbeing and potentiality.

Practice description

The therapy I provide is for individuals, couples, and groups, either remotely via, video link, phone, or within my beautiful little counselling room, but always with 'you' the client at the heart. 

                                                          *

I recognise life isn't always straightforward, difficulties and complications can make it hard for you (or your relationship). Sometimes speaking to well meaning friends and family doesn't always help; this is when contacting a trained counsellor can be beneficial. 

Below I have listed some of the areas I work with clients on.

Anxiety

Sexuality

Depression

Eating disorders

A sense of emptiness

Lack of purpose or meaning

Fear of emotional intimacy and trust

Lack of confidence/low self-esteem

Isolation/loneliness

Loss/bereavement

Body dysmorphia

Relationships

Trauma

My first session

What is and why have an initial session?

I offer an initial 30-minute session, this can be face to face or via phone or video link. However, regardless of the platform of communication this is your chance to see if therapy with me is something you would like to pursue.  It's also an opportunity for you to explore what you would like to achieve from therapy, and have an insight into how I work. The counselling contract, including the boundaries and limitations of our sessions are also explained. If you are happy to continue, then we can find a mutually agreeable time and day to meet on a regular basis.

Finding Me: 

If we are meeting virtually then I will send a Zoom link - although I am also happy to use Skype or Webex. If we are meeting in the counselling room then I will send you exact location details of where to meet.
