About me and my therapy practice
As a qualified and experienced counsellor of 20 years, I draw from my diverse training and proficiency, to find the best way of working with you. The relationship I build with clients is always informed by the fact that (although we all share certain human experiences) we are uniquely individual. In recognition of this uniqueness, I respect without judgement that the way you experience your life and the world, will be different to anybody else’s experience.
Clients tell me that my gentle manner enables them to feel secure and confide in me. This relationship of trust helps us both to gain a deeper understanding of the client-situation and strengthens our work to identify strategies to overcome challenges. There is no greater joy than to work with my clients to discover their own strengths and abilities to create the change they want in life.
I work with all presenting concerns, including anxiety, stress, depression. I have a keen interest in health anxiety including long term medical conditions and the stresses they bring. I have extensive training and experience within the field of bereavement, working with all causes of loss. I am a on an accredited list for Infant and baby loss including IVF and post natal concerns , where I have also worked with clients with this issue within the NHS.
I currently work with clients ONLINE on the ZOOM platform, which has proven to be effective after its continued use after the Covid-19 pandemic. This gives you the choice of how your counselling sessions many fit into your life, in turn I can accept clients across the country.
I have training in working remotely, so work to a good standard.
My first session
I offer a brief telephone call to establish if am a suitable counsellor for you, and any questions you may have.
