About me and my therapy practice
Are you feeling anxious, stressed, low on confidence, empty, numb or dissatisfied with life? Are you struggling in a relationship or after a bereavement? Do you feel that the same situation keeps happening over and over?
I offer a welcoming and safe space where you can talk about your thoughts, feelings and and problems without judgement, which can help you to grow and change.
Also, we can explore your difficulties together so that you develop greater awareness and understanding, and as a result have more flexibility in your decisions and feel empowered to make new choices.
The most important part of counselling and psychotherapy is our relationship, so I will also blend in my knowledge of different types of therapy, training and experience, and adapt my approach to meet your specific needs and goals where possible, such as by discussing coping techniques.
I provide in-person, online and phone sessions.
I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling & Psychotherapy from Leeds Beckett University and completed training in Online and Telephone Counselling. I also volunteered at Bradford Counselling Service for three years.
Before I was a therapist I taught English as a foreign language in Italy and worked in administrative roles in health and higher education.
In my spare time I enjoy films, baking, and going on walks in the countryside. In 2019 I went to Sierra Leone to teach Maths and English, and help local charities with their projects.
I am available for sessions on weekday afternoons and evenings.
How much does it cost
I offer an introductory session for £30.
After that, individual 50-minute sessions cost £50.
A block booking of 6 sessions costs a discounted price of £270.
My main influences are person-centred, existential and psychodynamic therapy but I also draw on ideas from other forms of therapy such as cognitive behavioural therapy and acceptance and commitment therapy. Uniting all of these therapies in my approach is the core idea that how we think, feel and behave is shaped by our relationships past and present, and that the therapeutic relationship can be a catalyst for change.
My first session
I believe it's really important that you find a therapist that you feel comfortable talking to, so I offer an introductory session for £30 where you can get a feel for how it is to speak to me and we can talk about how we might work together.
