About me and my therapy practice

I am here to help you if you need to explore something which is causing you distress, and support you in finding a way to make the necessary changes to move forward.

This may be something that has happened recently, or in the past, or something that has always been a struggle. Together we begin by exploring how your issue impacts you on a day to day basis, how it influences various aspects of your life and the ways in which it hinders you. From there we try to understand where it has come from, and why it is so powerful before looking at what needs to change in order to allow you to live your life in the way you wish to.

We all have the ability to make changes but sometimes we think, believe or behave in a way which prevents us from realising that potential, leaving us stuck, trapped or going round in circles. By working together we can try to identify and shift the obstacles which are standing in your way.

Our work together will be a collaborative partnership that goes at your pace and lasts for as many sessions as you feel you need. I will not tell you what to do or give you homework, but work with you towards you therapeutic goal.

I am also an advanced practitioner in EFT (sometimes known as tapping) and offer one-off single sessions allowing the chance to explore an issue using this technique. Sessions involve tapping on acupressure points whilst discussing the experience or feeling you wish to work through, aiming to reduce the emotional impact and allow you to move forwards. It is useful for removing “mental blocks”, reducing anxiety around certain situations, tackling negative thought patterns, increasing motivation, or improving confidence.

Because these are single sessions, working on something with roots in complex trauma would not be appropriate but if you would like to talk about we can combine EFT with longer term counselling, I would be happy to discuss
