I am currently taking on new clients.
I also have a wonderful and friendly admin assistant who takes calls and answers emails on my behalf whilst I am Out of Office. She is DBS checked and bound by the same confidentiality contract as myself.
About me and my therapy practice
My counselling approach combines aspects of Person Centred Therapy, Transactional Analysis and Psychodynamic Therapy. As a counsellor my job is to help you to both make sense of what is happening to you and to find a way to live with the challenges you are facing. I strongly believe that the best way to do this is to create a safe relationship where you don’t feel judged and can explore all of your feelings. I have worked for a number of years counselling people from the LGBTQ+ community and understand the added complexities that this community faces. My professional background has been working in the charity sector with people with substance use issues, offending behaviour and/or mental health problems.
I had 20 years experience of working in a stressful corporate environment before making the decision to leave and train to be a counsellor. So im very interested in helping people make big life changes. Since leaving the corporate world I continue to work in the mental health charity field alongside my counselling practice. I am also interested in helping people who are living with loss whether this is a person, a career, a beloved pet, your sense of self or another form of loss
