Practice description

Hi, I am committing to working together to come to a greater understanding of the psychological and emotional issues that you want to explore. 

I'm an experienced MBACP and ACC registered counsellor and a registered Psychotherapists with UKATAP and ITAAP working with Transactional Analysis.

This is a Christian Counselling service. This means that you will receive counselling from a Christian. Regardless of your faith or feelings around religion. Christian psychology, combines your faith with the principles of psychology to improve your mental health. If you would like me to use biblical guidance or prayer within a session then please let me know, otherwise, you will not have any idea that it was Christian counselling but for the knowledge that I am a Christian myself.

providing a non-judgemental, warm and safe space where you can explore your inner self. Understanding why you do what you do? And why you think the way you think? I'm an integrative counsellor and draw on different approaches depending on your needs. I'm trained in person-centred and psychodynamic modalities, I work multiculturally with people from all walks of life.

For many years I work with people in addiction, be that alcohol, drugs, food, ocd's. 

I work alongside clients helping to overcome Trauma, Stress, depression, anxiety, low self-worth, those that have suffered from Mental, Physical, Domestic and or Sexual abuse.

I work with men and women in the sex industry and with trafficked/abused people.

I work with both men and women from all walks of life helping them find who they are! Understanding their own self worth and learning how to head towards an better life. 

My first session

Whether it's individual, Couples, a candidate for group sessions or giving supervision, when meeting someone new I like to get to know them a little and let them get to know me, so.

I offer a 30 minute free Zoom or phone session To get to know each other and to see if you feel comfortable talking with me, it's so important that the counsellor/client relationship is strong, its foundation is a one of trust ans safety.

If you want to go ahead then I will send you (normally by email) an assessment form and a handbook outlining the service.
