About me and my therapy practice

Hello! Life presents us all with challenges from time to time - maybe it’s anxiety, depression, bereavement, or a host of other difficulties - and therapy might be just the support you need. I see clients in my home near Fakenham and on line via Zoom or VSee. My approach is primarily Person-Centred and also draws on the practice of Focusing

Person-Centered Counseling is a humanistic talk therapy which holds that every individual has within a vast resource for self-awareness, purposeful growth and self-actualization. It means that you are at the centre of the therapy and that I attune deeply in order to know as best I can how you experience yourself, your relationships, and the world around you. It holds that what we yearn for is to be truly seen, heard, and felt by another, and that when we experience this we change and grow in a natural way.  

Focusing is a simple bodily process for emotional healing. It listens to the messages of the body and tunes in to an inner felt sense of knowing. Many of us rely so heavily on the mind and intellect to get through life and resolve our difficulties that we can end up disconnected from our inner body’s sensations and wisdom. Focusing can restore this ability and promote fuller living.

My first session

As a first step, I like to meet you via Zoom for a free consultation of about 30 minutes. This gives us a chance to find out a bit about each other and get a sense of whether I am the right therapist for you. After that, I suggest an Introductory Session of 60 minutes, via Zoom or in person, at a reduced fee of £25. I hope this gives you enough of a feel for me and how I work to decide if you would like to continue with more sessions.

About me and my therapy practice

My approach to Therapy and Supervision is firmly grounded in the Peson-Centred approach and supported by the practice of Focusing. This perspective views personal and professional growth as inextricable and mutually beneficial.  I believe that Supervision is most effective when it attends to the whole person of the Therapist and when you and I engage in an undefensive encounter with each other. My vision is that together we can create a space in which you are free to bring all aspects of yourself as well as your work with your clients. 

My first session

Finding a Supervisor that feels compatible is essential for us all. To this end, I like to offer you an initial  30 minute meeting via Zoom free of charge. This allows us to find out a bit about each other and get a feel for whether we could work well together. After that, and if you would like, I suggest a full Initial Session of 60 minutes at a reduced fee of £25. This can be via Zoom or in person if conditions permit. I hope then that you will have a good enough feel for me and how I work to know whether you would like to continue or not.

Email is the best way to contact me. Please get in touch if you have any questions.
