About me and my therapy practice

Change, decisions, loneliness, loss, grief, relationships, sometimes we can feel overwhelmed. Having a counsellor to talk things through with can really help with the anxiety and depression that can make life hard to cope with. I am a mature and calm person, offering a supportive and non-judgemental counselling service to help you when life's challenges get too much.

I work with each client in the same way, which is being empathetic, attentive, calm and open. Every person who comes to counselling is different, but I believe the basics of a helpful counselling session are always the same.  I trained as a Humanistic Integrative counsellor, where the client is always at the centre of the work we do together. 

 When a client comes to counselling, it is often prompted by, or the start of change in their lives, and perhaps what initially prompts someone to seek counselling is just one aspect of their concerns or issues, and as we work together other thoughts, feelings and concerns may also surface, and so we can work on whatever comes up, and in whatever order suits you. I have worked with college and university students, as well as older people, I have worked in other countries and have an understanding of cultural issues.

Practice description

I currently work on the phone and on zoom. Each session is 50 minutes.

My first session

I offer a free initial consultation to discuss your needs and then you can decide if you would like to work with me. The first actual session will include going through the client contract, which explains our responsibilities as counsellor and client, legal obligations of the counsellor, data protection, session times and payment terms, to ensure we are working ethically and professionally. When this has been agreed upon, the session continues with whatever the client wants to start with.
