About me and my therapy practice

My aim is to provide a welcoming space for clients, to help them explore their personal issues and feelings, in order to gain confidence, to look at things more honestly and where necessary, make appropriate change.

I work with individuals, couples and those in relationship, families and children from around age 10yrs. Offering a private confidential counselling service I can support you at your most difficult and emotional times.

As well as using the Person Centred Counselling approach, Inner Child work I like to work creatively and mindfully using Somatic Mindfulness, creative expression, creative visualization, Art media and journaling, story writing/telling and using puppets when appropriate.

For more information please visit my website, or phone leaving a voicemail or send a text on 07769 730054.
I usually keep a couple of early appointments for new clients or urgent appointments. No issue is too small if it bothers you.
I look forward to working with you.

My first session

The first session is usually 50 minutes long which is the same as subsequent sessions. If you feel you'd like to leave earlier then that is acceptable. The first session gives you an opportunity to share and explore what brings you to see me with a view to starting therapy.

We will talk about the different ways I work and what might be a good way forward, a plan, and how I might envisage we work together, then if you feel settled and happy with my practice room environment and with the idea of having me as your therapist we can provisionally book your next date to have therapy and have any questions answered on any aspect of what we have talked over. I hope you will feel comfortable and supported.
