About me and my therapy practice
I (she / her) have worked as a psychotherapist since 2009 and have gained a thorough understanding that there maybe many reasons why a person is looking for extra support - or one reason, and that most importantly, no problem is too small.
After working online during the pandemic, I realised that some clients experienced this format very positively, so I now offer both in-person and online meetings. My office for in-person meetings is a calm, soothing environment and I hope to create a space where clients can safely explore the issues causing them challenges.
I have worked with a variety of issues which crop up during our lives - anxiety, loss & bereavement, eating disorders, anger, depression, self-harm, friendship issues, relationship and family breakdowns, self-esteem or low confidence - amongst some.
The aim is to help clients explore and understand these challenges, hopefully providing them with some useful tools along the way.
I work with both young people and adults, and the basis of our work will be to create a strong relationship and be able to trust in the process of exploring whatever it is that is troubling you.
I work Integratively - which means my work incorporates a number of theoretical approaches, depending on the needs and character of the relationship developed with the client.
Sometimes it can be helpful to offer some psychoeducation around various issues and I am always happy to bring this into the work if my client and I agree it could be helpful.
My main aim is to create a safe and trusting relationship which will facilitate the right psychological and physical environment where my clients can explore what is going on.
My first session
In our first session or phone conversation I may ask a number of questions to work out what sort of support a client is looking for and to make sure they have the opportunity to ask me questions and gain understanding as to how I work, and what to expect in our meetings. It is really important to me that the client feels comfortable coming into our sessions and sees the space as a collaborative and supportive environment.
