About me and my therapy practice
We all experience times in life when we feel stuck or distressed. Perhaps you are experiencing depression or anxiety; you may have professional or personal relationship difficulties; you may have experienced bereavement or other significant loss. Or perhaps there is not an identifiable cause of your disquiet - you may wish to explore who you are and who you want to be - to develop a better understanding of yourself, your patterns of behaviour, and to move towards a healthier more fulfilling life.
I am a down to earth, qualified counsellor, who can offer you a warm, confidential and non-judgmental therapeutic relationship into which you can bring whatever is concerning you; to be heard, and to look at ways in which we might work to address your issues.
As an Integrative Counsellor I will tailor my approach to your unique needs. This will be informed by my training and experience in Psychodynamic Therapy (the impact of early childhood on adult life) and Person Centred Therapy (the belief that we can grow; that we will grow in a facilitating environment)
Above all I believe in the importance of the therapeutic relationship - in how we 'fit' as two people. So, when you feel ready, give me a call or send an email and we can arrange to meet (at a reduced fee of £40) and you can get a sense of how we might work together.
Background and Experience:
