Check out website cccltd.org for details. 

I am a qualified registered counsellor / psychotherapist (FDA counselling; Dip.psysextherapy) with both the BACP and BACP spirituality and I utilise an integrative approach to enable clients to recognise, understand and process their issues. This approach teamed with psychoeducation helps a client to develop a deep sense of self-awareness formulating in promoting healing and inner change. I also hold a psychosexual diploma

By utilising an Integrative method, I have the benefit of drawing on a range of tools according to the needs of my client. As with all things in life, there is never one approach that suits all, therefore considering the many facets that make us human, utilising various methods means, I can tailor the sessions to meet a variety of your needs and concerns, making it more flexible for you to reach your goals.

Arguably the challenges of modern life and the events and experiences we are all faced with can impact our wellbeing. It can cause us to shut down some aspects of who we are resulting in anxiety, depression, and other symptoms. It can impact in all areas, from work our health through to friendships and even impinge our most intimate of relationships and our ability to live life on our terms. 

Practice description

My combined approach of both traditional and holistic counselling methods, the provision of a safe, confidential and warm environment and our therapeutic relationship, which is led by you, all stand to support you in being able to share the difficulties you face, gain insight, rebuild your foundations and move forward to achieve your goals.

In relation to relationships where intimacy has become an issue, individuals can get a sense of being “stuck”, potentially consumed with feelings of jealousy or resenting their partner, like their on opposite sides of a tennis court with no mutual ground. I will work with you at your pace to unravel whatever is causing you angst or distress and to aid in you building improved relationship with yourself and your partner. Issues include lack of libido, orgasm difficulties, erectile dysfunction, ejaculatory vaginismus, body image etc.

Similarly, with trauma we will work together to process the emotions that are linked to those events and create coping strategies to assist you in better understanding what has happened. In doing this it will enable you to create internally a more healthy and adaptive meaning to the event allowing you to heal and move forward.  

My first session

At Clear Conscience Counselling Ltd In order to ascertain your needs and requirements, a 90-minute face to face 1-1 appointment is conducted. This session allows the opportunity for me to find out about you and your issues and together, decide whether counselling is the right course of action for you.

If found, we will discuss the types of therapy intervention available and collaboratively decide which therapy (in the first instance) best addresses your needs.

Once agreed we will book a 60-minute appointment for your first session.
