About me and my therapy practice
I am am offering Face to Face or Video sessions.
I have over 12 years experience working in different settings including the Youth Offending team, The Samaritans, Family Matters, Time4Change (drugs and alcohol), Devon and Cornwall Police, a Plymouth Primary School as Parent Support, Plymouth MIND and The Wolseley Trust.
Each place that I have volunteered or worked has given me new experiences to make me a more experiences and knowledgeable therapist, every client brings something different and each client is unique.
At times life can become challenging and overwhelming with the strains and stresses of everyday life. Everyday can be more difficult with mixed emotions and adverse behaviour which can sometimes leave us feeling empty and alone. This can filter into our home, work, college and relationships.
I understand that choosing a therapist can be a daunting experience, you are choosing someone to which you are about to share you experiences with. I want you to feel comfortable and secure as well as trusted and listened to in calm and private surroundings. This is why I offer a 30 minute consultation free of charge so that you can meet me, feel comfortable in my therapy room and give me an understanding of what is going on for you
My gift to you is to help you understand what is going on in your life and to try and help you change your behaviour to make a difference to your well being. With this I offer you warmth, understanding and empathy as well as a safe confidential and non-judgemental space to feel relaxed in.
I love my work as a therapist, working with my clients and sharing their journey is a remarkably satisfying experience, I feel very privileged to be in this position and to trusted and respected.
I work with adults, young people and children over the age of 11 years.
I work in very quiet location in Plymouth just off Manadon Roundabout on the A38, there is plenty of street parking or you may park on my private drive.
My first session
For your first session I would meet you outside of my house and bring you around to the room that I use at the back of the house.
My initial free 30 minute consultation will be a matter of me explaining the confidentially contract with you, how I work and boundaries and for you to give me an idea of what is going on for you.
This is a chance for us to decide with we are suited to work together and mainly my aim is for you to feel safe and listened to.
