About me and my therapy practice
I am a Humanistic and Integrative counsellor and psychotherapist, with a background of working as a nurse and midwife for 25 years. My main approach is 'relational' which sees the therapeutic relationship as central to the therapy. Through this non-judgemental relationship I aim to provide you with a safe space where you can explore your feelings, gain a greater understanding of and work through the issues you are facing, and so move on in your life. It may be that we look at what is happening for you in the present moment but often we will look at what has happened in the past, your patterns of behaving and relating and how they are affecting you today. I am currently work in private practice based in the Broomhill area of Sheffield but also have experience of working in an university counselling service, working as a counsellor in a G.P. setting and a charity that works with survivors of sexual abuse and sexual violence.
I offer both indoor and outdoor therapy sessions as well as online sessions. please see below for more details regarding outdoor therapy.
I offer outdoor therapy for those who would prefer to meet in a natural space. Research shows that spending time in nature and natural spaces can have a calming and healing effect on us.
By taking our therapy work outside we will explore your relationship with nature, how you feel both emotionally and physically when in a natural space and in turn how this may help you as you explore the issues you are facing.
Outdoor therapy may take the form of 'walk and talk' or we may sit and spend time in a natural space.
In May 2022 I undertook training on Taking Therapy Outside with the Centre for Natural Reflection.
Currently I offer outdoor therapy in Ecclesall Woods. If you would like more information about outdoor therapy please get in touch.
