About me and my therapy practice
Sitting in a room with someone whom you have only just met, and then sharing about yourself with that person, is very likely to be a strange or even uncomfortable concept. This may also be the case when meeting someone online. However, once the counselling room or the space around you when online becomes more familiar to you, your counselling experience has the potential to be very valuable and possibly life changing.
If you think that you may benefit from counselling, or it has been recommended to you, I would encourage you to take the first step and call me to discuss what your needs are. When you feel ready you can book an introductory/ assessment session with me (which is offered at a reduced fee), and during that session you can experience what it would be like for us to work together. This helps to ensure that I am the right counsellor for you and your needs.
I am a qualified therapeutic counsellor who is registered with the BACP, and I can offer you time set aside just for you. Each counselling session aims to enable you to explore life events; your relationships; your feelings and emotions; and your patterns of behaviour. You know yourself the best, but some feelings and experiences may be buried so deeply that you can’t access them without someone else's support. Your counselling can help you learn more about yourself and understand your emotions, and can give you an opportunity to explore areas of your life and look at how they might be improved.
It can be difficult to imagine feeling ‘different’ ‘better’ or ‘happy’, or believe that change and a better quality of life is possible. Whatever your reason for accessing counselling, I will be there to provide the safe and supportive environment for you to grow and develop, to become more aware of yourself, to make changes for you to enjoy your life, and to enjoy being you!
As a humanistic therapist my aim is to demonstrate that I am empathic, trustworthy and non judgmental, and offer a therapeutic relationship which is intended to be supportive and healing.
If you are unsure what help you need or you don’t know ‘where to start’, we can work that out together. Alternatively, if you have thoughts and ideas about what you need to work through then that's fine too. If you have had counselling before, you might like to tell me worked well or not so well for you. Your counselling will be at a pace that you feel comfortable with, and by reviewing your progress regularly, you will have the opportunity to feedback to me how you are experiencing your counselling.
All my counselling sessions are currently online using Zoom, and I will resume face to face sessions when COVID restrictions and concerns resolve.
