About me and my therapy practice
Do you need a safe space to work through your thoughts and make difficult decisions? Is there something that you need to talk about, but don’t want to talk to friends or family about it right now? Counselling may offer the opportunity that you are seeking.
I am an integrative counsellor. This means that my counselling approach and techniques will be led by your needs and the topics you wish to work through. This may involve elements of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), Gestalt and psychodynamic approaches. It will always involve a confidential, empathic and non-judgemental environment.
My counselling experience is varied, having supported adults, children and young people over the last 4 years. I have worked regularly with clients experiencing (amongst other things) anxiety, depression, grief & loss, domestic abuse, family/relationship difficulties and identity issues.
I have worked within Cruse Bereavement services and have also supported young people in primary and secondary school, as well as FE college as a school/college based counsellor. I also have experience working alongside the military and can offer support in this context.
My aim is always to provide you with a calm and safe space to share your thoughts and experiences, allowing you to find the insight that you need to make the changes you desire.
I am currently working by Zoom or telephone, but can offer limited face to face sessions under government guidance.
My first session
If you decide to get in touch, the first session will be by telephone to discuss your situation and to identify how we could work together. This phone call will last up to 30 minutes and is free of charge.
Subsequent sessions will be weekly, lasting 50 minutes and charged at £50 (payable by BACS in advance).
