Availability

I work mainly online: Emails, SMS, phone and video call, but am happy to work face to face. The initial 20-minute consultation, either online or by telephone is free. This is an opportunity for me to explore what your expectations of counselling are. It also gives you the chance to ask any questions you may have and perhaps most importantly, see if I'm the right therapist for you. 

About me and my therapy practice

As a person-centred therapist, I offer an environment that is free from judgement and assumption and instead provide a space that is safe, confidential and empathic. It is my belief that offering this space could help you explore any issues you are facing and together, we can work through those issues and establish a sense of empowerment and positive mental well-being.

I feel that all people, are unique and therefore use my training, experience and intuition, to work in a creative and flexible way that reflects this. Whether this is your first time seeing a counsellor or you have had counselling before, I will meet you where you are at and work collaboratively with you. This means that I see counselling as something that we do together, exploring with curiosity what may be going on for you. I will be open, honest and respectful of you. I am aware that opening up may be difficult  and scary and will focus on a supportive pace that is right for you.

Practice description

Given the UK Government's guidance to people in England to stay at home unless absolutely necessary along with the closure of close-contact services, the BACP recommend that you consider options for working remotely where possible to reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection.

My first session

During the first session, we can discuss the reasons that brought you to therapy. I will explain about confidentiality, including your rights as a client and how I work as a therapist. We will jointly establish a working agreement, setting out preferred methods of communication and your expectations of therapy. You will have the freedom to discuss any concerns you may have. There are no right or wrong answers in therapy, it is about you and your experience of an event/situation.
