About me and my therapy practice

I offer both face to face and on line zoom sessions at the moment but can also take telephone sessions if that is my clients preference.

Practice description

I am a registered member of the BACP with experience of working with a variety of issues with adults over the age of 18,  supporting both short and long term therapy. I work integritively which means that i can adapt my therapy style to ensure that i am meeting my clients needs. I have worked with clients who have experienced loss and bereavement as well as general anxiety due to challenging events and changes in life. I have also worked with clients with self esteem issues and also trauma both past and present in order that they can move on and begin to live a full and best life. 

I believe that the relationship between therapist and client is very much based on the foundation of trust and understanding, and so my counselling style is very much person centred. This allows my clients to feel able to process their feelings in a safe and secure and non judgemental setting at the start and throughout their therapy journey.

My first session

I offer a free 20 minute introduction telephone call where we can discuss what you would like from therapy as well as establishing if you would like to work with me.  This is also a good time to discuss any concerns or question that you may have and also for you to talk through any information that you feel would be relevant before our first session. 

I realise that therapy can be quite scary so If you have any questions in  relation to the sessions or therapy in general please email or call me
