About me and my therapy practice

I am trained as an integrative counsellor, which means I am trained in several different theories and therapeutic approaches and will combine those techniques depending on the needs of my client. Integrating different theories allows me to draw on elements of each, to best help and support individual clients and their current needs. I work with loss, change, anxiety, depression, confidence, relationship difficulties and more. My counselling approach includes the theories and concepts of; CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, working with thoughts, feelings and behaviours), Gestalt (resolution of past issues and experience in the present moment), Person-Centred (self worth and values) and Transactional Analysis (communication and relationships). I have regular supervision to support my work with clients, my personal and professional development and to ensure I am working ethically. Client confidentiality is honoured throughout my work with individuals as well as during my supervision.

Practice description

I am based in Bedfordshire and work from an air conditioned therapy studio in Tebworth, near Leighton Buzzard.

My first session

An initial assessment appointment is necessary to enable you to get a feel for what counselling involves and how it may help you. This is your opportunity to ask any questions or raise any concerns you may have before making such a commitment.
Here we will discuss the practicalities of counselling and this time will enable me to make an assessment of your presenting problems and difficulties and decide with you, the goals of counselling and areas to be worked on in future sessions.
More importantly, this initial session is designed for you to make an assessment of your ability to work with me and does not commit you to continue with future sessions.

The therapeutic relationship is fundamental in your therapy and therefore if you do not feel that I am the right person to work with you, then it is important we discuss this to ensure you find a counsellor you feel comfortable with.
