About me and my therapy practice

I understand how overwhelming life can become at points in our life and how this can become incredibly consuming. There are some moments in life that are really difficult and in these moments talking to someone may feel needed or in fact just as difficult. I’m here to let you know that that’s okay! 

Acknowledging the difficulty and also talking about the problems you’re facing will come with time; I will endeavour to provide a safe, confidential and judgement free environment to allow this space for you to explore these moments and be there alongside you.

I’m a Person Centred counsellor working to the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)’s ethical and legal framework. My way of working is to be guided by you and the journey you take our therapeutic relationship along. 

My focus will be you and how I can best support you.

Practice description

I completed my Therapeutic Counselling Diploma at New College Swindon after 5 years of training. During the COVID-19 pandemic I undertook a Telephone and Online Counselling course to ensure safe, ethical and legal online work for my clients during such uncertain times.

I receive ongoing training and development to ensure my practice, knowledge and expertise are as up to date as possible. I’ve also completed my level 5 counselling Children and Younger People qualification as this was a personal interest of mine. I am now embarking upon another educational journey of completing my masters in Ethics in Counselling Practice.

During my work as a counsellor I have worked with a variety of different issues, people and ages. I have worked with clients from the age of 11. From this, I have found that regardless of who walks through my door, I’m incredibly thankful and touched to be a part of their therapeutic process. 

Aside from my private practice in Devizes; I have volunteered within a local secondary school as their school counsellor as well as currently volunteering counselling services to a local Mental Health charity in Trowbridge and a young persons counselling Charity in Faringdon.

My first session

Once initial contact has been made, we will schedule a convenient time to have an initial appointment. During this initial appointment it provides you with the chance to meet me and make sure we are a good fit for your therapeutic journey. During this time we will look what you expect and would like to talk about within our time together while also going through the contracting together.

We can then work at your pace and time.
