About me and my therapy practice
Hello and a warm welcome to my page.
Life can be complex and challenging at times, however I believe counselling can be transformative and supportive in your well-being. Whether you are experiencing difficulties in your life such as anxiety, low mood, grief or relational conflict, these are some of the ways in which I may be able to offer support.
Our emotions provide us with valuable information and having a space to feel heard in a non-judgmental environment may support you in observing your challenges from an alternative perspective.
I feel the therapeutic relationship and being present with my client provides a space to be listened to and is at the heart of my practice. Offering a calm and compassionate space where you are welcome to talk through difficult and painful experiences , thoughts and feelings. Wherever you are in your life I feel you have the autonomy to move in the direction which feels right for you.
My approach to counselling values working alongside you and the sessions are adaptive to the uniqueness of the person I am working with. Encouraging self-awareness, self-development and seeking to support you in recognising your strengths, creatively and choices in life. A space for reflection and pause before you act upon your feelings.
As well as working with children from ages eleven onwards I also have extensive experience in working with adults up to and beyond retirement age with a wide range of issues, challenges and behaviours.
I am a Humanistic Integrative trained counsellor and Breath Work Coach.
What does this mean?
An Integrative approach to counselling is where I may draw upon a blend of theories such as person centred , Jungian , psychodynamic , existential and CBT focused . Working with what you bring into the therapeutic space.
I also offer breath work which can be brought into the session or arranged separately .Breath work can be supportive when experiencing stress, anxiety, depression and previous events which the body may be holding onto . This can have a significant effect on our well-being.
My first session
I feel it is very important you find the right counsellor for you. I offer a complimentary thirty minute consultation online or via telephone. This is a relaxed and informal conversation where you may share what has brought you to seek counselling and what you may be looking to gain from our sessions. This also offers a space to see if we are a good fit and answer any questions you may have.
There is no obligation to continue with the sessions after this time.
Should you wish to work together I would then email a copy of our working agreement for your consideration. Following up with a mutually agreed regular time and date to commence our journey of work together.
