About me and my therapy practice
I am a registered member of of the British Association Counselling Psychotherapy (BACP) and National Counselling Society (NCS - Accredited) and I adhere strictly to their ethical framework. I am a trained Integrative Counsellor which means that I have the flexibility to adapt my counselling skills according to my client’s specific individual needs.
I am deeply committed to my own regular professional development and clinical supervision to further enhance my practice.
With time, empathy, respect and a safe space, people feel free to explore their life challenges with me in a positive, productive manner. This exploration often leads to understanding, acceptance and an ability to move forward.
My role is to walk alongside you as you explore your experience and how it is impacting your life so that you can reconnect with who you really are, rather than the person that you have become.
“You can’t understand someone until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes”
Why I work as a Therapist
I thoroughly enjoy working with people and learning to understand what makes them 'tick.' I am essentially a people person and this has always inspired my work, forming an integral part of who I am both personally and professionally with my clients.
I am a down-to-earth therapist who is warm, caring and easy to talk to about difficult issues. I believe humour (where appropriate) and joy can be as much an important aspect of the therapeutic healing process as distress, anger, fear or anxiety.
As human beings, I sense we need to be in touch with the full range of emotions we can experience in order to feel 'alive'. However, I also know how easily we can shut them down when we fear what might happen if we experience the feelings we tend to regard as being more negative.
Therapy can help lift this fear and anxiety and show how to live in a different and more fulfilling way.
