About me and my therapy practice
I'm a qualified counsellor and coach committed to providing quality counselling that is professional, compassionate, and potent. I aim to create a safe and supportive place to explore what's important to you - how you feel, think, and experience your life. Working in collaboration with you brings you self-awareness, self-acceptance, and a new capacity to grow with life changes.
Before training as a therapist, I spent many years in corporate life. Indeed I continue to provide executive and performance coaching in several business settings. This enables me to stay close to and appreciate the impact of work-life balance, leadership and career pressures, role changes, redundancy, and retirement. I have also gained considerable experience as a counsellor with mental health charities MIND and MOSAC. The latter is dedicated to supporting families where sexual abuse has occurred.
About my service
I work with adults, offering individual and group counselling for various issues and problems. I work in a way that values and respects all of your experiences. My purpose is to heighten awareness and identify new resources which help you tackle difficulties, including traumatic historical or recent events. While my focus is on what's happening for you now, I provide a safe environment should it be beneficial to you to explore past situations or relationships that may be contributing to current challenges.
I am aware that what is sometimes called the inner critic or inner judge can lead to distress or trigger feelings of shame. Together we build ways to disengage from these negative thought processes and move toward an alternative, positive, realistic, balanced outlook.
I work face to face, via video, and phone. I generally meet clients weekly for 50 minutes, ideally for a minimum of twelve sessions. However, this part of working together will depend on our mutual agreement during our initial sessions.
My first session
I offer a free 30-minute introduction session via video or phone for new clients. This provides us with both with an opportunity to discuss your issues and how my approach may prove useful to your needs.
