About me and my therapy practice

They say life isn't meant to be easy, but that doesn't mean we are not affected. Having a space to be heard and to explore the life we are living and the way we feel is one of the most kind and bravest things we can do for ourselves. We are all human after all.

I am here alongside you to explore this, and work to help you understand your own journey no matter how that looks.

I work from a Humanistic perspective which means that I have total faith in you that you are your own expert ! I fully believe that with some you time and a non judgemental space , it is possible to understand the background noise and begin to make sense of what is holding you back, wether that be past, present or future !

I have experience in working with young people in care and adults and am happy to discuss any of your needs in a free assessment to see if I am the therapist for you, and for me to help you in the way that I know best . It is a great chance for you to get to know me a little more and see how you feel about starting therapy. 

Practice description

I offer a free telephone assessment prior to any therapy to establish if I am the right support for you and also for you to figure out if I am the right therapist for you !

I am not a person to tell you what to do, how to live your life or judge .... What I am here for is to help you explore, unpick and make sense of how you feel and the events that have led you to feel this way. I am here to offer empathy, compassion and maybe a little gentle challenge if you are sometimes hard on yourself ! 

I'm here to help you move towards taking your power back !

I offer a confidential and non judgemental space where you are free and able to talk about the things you usually keep to yourself and can signpost you to more appropriate services if we feel that it would benefit you more.  I respect your confidentiality and autonomy and have a solid belief that we can unpick these things together with you leading the way.

I work alongside young people aged 16 and over and adults with a wide range of things in life that can impact us.

We don't often get the opportunity to offload our daily struggles and we actually work harder in trying to hide them from others. I hope and feel that you consider therapy as  a place where you are free to offload anything you feel comfortable to.

My first session

Our first telephone session is free and lasts 30 minutes. This gives us opportunity to work out the best support for you and also to see if you find me a fit as a therapist. 

Following sessions are mobile and I can visit your home, unless you prefer to meet in a community  setting and this can be arranged.
