About me and my therapy practice
Hi, I’m Steph. I’m a qualified integrative counsellor and a registered member of the BACP.
I passionately believe in the transformative power of counselling to change lives and it is a privilege to see the impact this has on allowing people to live more positive lives. Making the decision to reach out and come to counselling is the first step towards beginning to feel better.
I offer a warm, compassionate and confidential space for you to talk about difficult or painful feelings, thoughts and experiences.
I have experience of working with a wide range of clients with a variety of backgrounds and issues. I offer individual therapy to adults, either online or on the telephone. I am also a counselling lecturer and have worked in education for almost 20 years.
How counselling can help
Does it feel like you are “going through the motions” in your life, without really understanding where you are going or where you have arrived? Do you feel like you need to talk, but no one really hears what you are saying?
Life can be challenging and overwhelming at times but having time and a safe place to explore emotions and past and present experiences can allow you relief and understanding of self. This self-awareness provides the ability to be able to challenge negative thoughts and patterns of behaviour, in order to improve your future mental and emotional well-being.
My focus is to provide a calm and safe space that allows you to feel at ease and able to talk about what is affecting you, without fear of judgement. I will really listen to you and respect how you experience the world and the events that have happened to you. This will ideally allow you to connect with your real and authentic self. Feeling heard can help to make sense of thoughts, feelings and experiences and empower you to make the choices that will make your life happier.
My experience as an integrative counsellor means that I use a bespoke blend of therapeutic approaches based on the needs of each client. A trusting working relationship is at the heart of this, but I will draw from approaches such as humanistic, psychodynamic, CBT. The approach we will take will depend on what is the right fit for you.
