About me and my therapy practice
As a qualified and experienced Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and Accredited Person Centred Counsellor, my therapeutic approach is guided by your individual needs. There are times in our life when we struggle to feel connected to people and the world around us. This may be as a result of events in your life that have triggered your threat system to be on high alert, such as childhood traumas, including abuse, neglect, bullying, health problems, family separation, loss. It may also be due to events in adulthood, such as relationship break downs, redundancy, personal injury, workplace bullying, bereavement, or the impact of Covid 19.
My aim is to provide a safe space, without judgment, to help you to identify the causes of your problems and then to offer a tailor made approach, based on your needs, to enable you to find some peace and contentment within yourself.
As a Psychological Therapist, within the NHS, I have worked with a broad range of mental and physical health difficulties, including Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Panic, Health Anxiety, Social Anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Trauma, Eating Disorders, Loss, Self Esteem, Adjustment Disorder, Depression, Self Harm and Long Term Health conditions.
As well as providing either Person Centred Counselling, or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, I am also trained in Eye Movement, Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR).
I provide short, or long term therapy, dependent on what you hope to achieve from your sessions. The sessions can either be held remotely (telephone or video sessions), or at your home (dependent on distance) and provided that we are in a confidential space.
My first session
I offer an initial 30 minute telephone consultation, free of charge. This will be an opportunity for me to explain how I work, as well as gathering some information, as to what has brought you to seek therapy. You will also have the opportunity to ask me any questions about my work as a therapist.
If we are both happy to proceed with the therapy, I will book you in for your first appointment, at a time that is suitable for you.
