About me and my therapy practice

I follow an Integrative approach to counselling with the basis of this from the Humanistic model.  This form of counselling takes into account your mental, physical and emotional needs and we will use techniques and tools from many areas of therapy to tailor an individual approach for you.

Practising in this way, enables you to find out about yourself, in the right environment, with respect and regard throughout.

I aim to provide you with a safe, confidential space where you can feel comfortable to start your journey of therapy.

I am bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and work within this to ensure you are kept safe throughout our work together.

I undertake regular Supervision with a BACP registered Supervisor to ensure my practice is considered and ethical at all times.

I continue to work at a local Hospice.

Practice description

Are you struggling with something?  

You may have lost your way a bit, lost your purpose or lost what used to drive you. Maybe you have experienced trauma, abuse or loss.  Perhaps  struggling with a relationship issue, a bereavement or questions around gender or sexuality.

There could be life stresses, anxieties or worries.  Past family issues or current life situations that you just can't figure out for yourself.

Sometimes we struggle to know what it is but we do know it doesn't feel right.  These feelings can consume and overwhelm us and stop us from moving forward.

Whatever you are feeling, having a safe and confidential space to explore, within a non-judgemental relationship, can be the start to living better and looking at the future in a different way.

At your first session, we can meet and look more at how therapy can help and how the process works.
