About me and my therapy practice
I am a warm, sensitive, empathic and gently challenging Integrative Counsellor. I work with adults, children and and adolescents. I offer parent coaching and parent-child therapy.
I have a special interest in complex trauma and dissociation, the body-mind relationship, and eating disorders, including over-eating and bingeing.
As well as my special interests, I enjoy variety and am qualified and experienced to work with a wide range of issues, including amongst many: identity/gender/sexuality, transgender, health issues eg fibromyalgia and encopresis, autistic spectrum disorders, suicidal ideation and attempts, self harming, anger, depression and anxiety.
As an integrative therapist, I tailor the therapy to you as an individual. I commit to working at your own pace and in a way that suits you. Open, ongoing feedback on how you are finding the therapy is an important part of the process. I am interested in bringing creativity, body awareness, relaxation training and mindfulness into talk therapy - this is optional and always your choice.
I have in-depth specialist training for counselling with children and teenagers as well as creative and expressive therapies, and British Psychological Society approved Practitioner Skills certificates for eating disorders. I am currently completing a post qualification diploma in Body Psychotherapy and Advanced training in Child Psychotherapy. I have completed DDP (Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy - attachment focussed family therapy) training Levels 1 & 2.
My private practice is based at my peaceful home in Tadley, within easy reach of Basingstoke, Reading, Newbury, Winchester and surrounding areas of Hampshire and Berkshire.
To help you decide if I am the right person for you, I offer a free half hour phone consultation. This is a no obligation opportunity to get a sense of who I am and how I work. Following this you can book a first counselling session.
