About me and my therapy practice
If you are facing challenging times, I can offer you a supportive, caring and confidential environment to explore any issues and work with you towards healing and a happier and fulfilling future.
I work in an integrative way which means that I can adapt the counselling approach to the needs of my client. I can offer you the time to talk about what worries you, or what feels too much to deal with alone when you feel there is no one else to confide in. I am a caring and empathetic listener and understand the importance of building a trusting relationship with you. I work in a non-judgemental way, offering a warm, caring and calm environment.
Counselling will give you the time and space to explore your feelings, anxieties and challenges. Working together, we will explore any issues in order to clarify and understand them more fully.
Whilst my work and experience covers a broad range of emotional and behavioural issues, I specialise in the area of grief and bereavement. I work as a volunteer at the St Nicholas Hospice which has offered me in-depth, practical experience, broadening my understanding of the concerns and emotions experienced at this very difficult and painful stage of life.
My first session
Sometimes attending Counselling for the first time can be daunting and you may feel apprehensive at the thought of sharing your thoughts, fears and challenges with a stranger.
An initial chat on the phone is helpful and we can then arrange your first session. In this session, we will go over the nature of counselling and confidentiality and I can answer any questions you may have. We will then begin to explore your concerns and how we will work together. Sessions are 50 minutes long and usually once a week.
