About me and my therapy practice
Counselling can help you overcome obstacles to your wellbeing, finding the right therapist is important as the relationship between us will form the foundation of any work we do together.
I am a qualified counsellor and registered member of the BACP. I have experience of providing counselling services for local and national organisations, including low cost and EAP work. This varied experience means I have worked with a broad range of issues. Prior to this I worked as a nurse in the NHS for over 20 years, many of which were in critical care. This role enabled me to witness the inner power of humanity in its most raw form and our resilience in the most challenging of circumstances. It continues to inform my practice as a counsellor. I hold a foundation qualification in yoga so I can incorporate breathwork and meditation into our sessions if this would be of interest to you.
You may be already be aware of what you are seeking from counselling or possibly it is just a sense that life is unfulfilled and you want things to change. Together we can explore difficult feelings or situations in a confidential, safe, dependable space that is free of judgement. You are at the heart of this process and we will work at a pace that feels right for you. Having the opportunity to talk and be heard, explore and reflect can enable you to start to find a way forwards. To start to move towards healing and growth.
You may well have many questions, I welcome any enquiries.
My first session
We can meet for a no-obligation 30 minute exploratory session (cost £15) where you can discuss what you are hoping to get from counselling with me and to see if we feel we could work effectively together. This will also give me the opportunity to discuss practical matters such as confidentiality, Data Protection, how to make payment and cancellation policy.
