I run a private practice offering online, telephone and face to face therapy sessions on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays.

About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified and BACP registered counsellor with 7 years of experience. 

My practice is based on transactional analysis, which is an evidence-based therapy. I draw on other approaches, where relevant, to tailor the therapy for each client’s unique needs and preferences.

I offer face to face counselling in Thatcham and provide both short term and long term therapy. My particular areas of interest are; depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, bereavement/ grief, body image, and health related issues (such as long term health conditions). I have worked in private practice for 5 years, after having worked for an NHS talking therapy service for 2 years.

Practice description

I work in a non judgemental and relational way which means what is created between us in therapy can be a snap shot to how things play out in everyday life.

With this perspective we can bring about change to the mind and body, exploring where you may feel trapped or stuck in old outdated ways of relating to others and being in the world.

Through this process we develop a confident sense of self that creates healing to the parts of your life that you are struggling with.

I offer both long and short term therapy tailoring it to your individual needs.

My first session

I offer a free, no-obligation, 30 minute initial meeting. During that meeting we would explore the problems you are seeking counselling for as well as what your goals for counselling are. This meeting will also give you a sense as to whether you feel I am the right counsellor for you.
