About me and my therapy practice
Many of us struggle with ourselves or life experiences. It can feel a huge step to reach out for help; it takes courage to open up about issues that cause pain and difficulties. I believe that having the space to explore your concerns and feelings, no matter what they are, can bring the opportunity to heal and make the changes you wish for.
Below is a brief summary of my counselling experience.
3 years experience as a trainee and qualified counsellor in an agency for teenagers and young people working with a range of issues including low self esteem; anger management; sexual abuse; depression and family relationships.
Over 7 years specialist experience as a family support and bereavement counsellor in a hospice. Client work involved working with loss; anticipatory grief; spiritual and existential struggle; facing death and complex bereavement. Other issues can arise from a loss so I have also worked with suicidal ideation; childhood loss and abuse; low self-esteem; adjustment difficulties; identity ; coping style and complex family relationships.
Through supervision and staff debrief I have an insight and understanding of the challenges faced by those working in the caring professions.
I have worked short term with clients via an Employee Assistance Programme.
I currently volunteer with Shout the crisis text service.
My fees are £45 per session. I work flexibly according to clients needs which can be short or Longer term.
I also offer online counselling via email.
I'm happy for you to contact me by telephone for an initial conversation about the issues you'd like to bring to counselling.
My first session
In you first session I will invite you to talk through your reasons for attending counselling. This will include details of your current life circumstances as well as some details of your family background and history.
