About me and my therapy practice
I am a Registered Member of the BACP working towards my accreditation. I have worked with people from varied backgrounds and of different ages. My youngest client was 12 years old and my oldest client was an older adult. I am a Counselling Tutor for The Bedfordshire Centre for Therapeutic Studies.
I practice privately in Stevenage Old Town, please be mindful that climbing a few stairs is required to get to this room. I do have access to another room in Bedwell, Stevenage which has an accessibility ramp. Both premises have ample parking and public transport access. I always say to meet for an assessment session, this is at a reduced rate. This will give us the opportunity to meet, I can hear a little more about you and you can hear more about what I can offer you. This will allow you to choose if I am the right counsellor for you. I am a qualified integrative counsellor which means I can work in various ways. I have the patience and ability to go at your pace, ensuring you feel safe and empathically understood (Person-Centered).
I can also work with you to explore your past and how past events influence your present behaviour and relationships (Psychodynamic). I have some knowledge of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, so I am able to goal set if this felt appropriate. Although limited I do have some transactional analysis training. This can be particularly useful when exploring how we communicate with each other and the roles we take on as our own. I was also trained in Existential Therapy and looking at philosophy of life and our purposes. I understand that sometimes words can be difficult to find. I am able to bring in other mediums to assist your journey. These can include; paints and other forms of artwork, sand-tray and music. Please do not hesitate to ask me any questions. I aim to get back to everyone the same day.
