About me and my therapy practiceTaking that first step in seeking help can be very anxiety-provoking. I offer a warm and pleasant space where you can privately and confidentially discuss any aspect of the difficulties you are experiencing. With over 14 years' experience working with a diverse range of clients presenting with emotional and psychological difficulties, I can help you to feel relaxed and at ease. I am qualified in Counselling, CBT and Hypnotherapy as well as being trained in EMDR. My broad range of therapeutic skills and experience enables me to offer you a choice of treatments for a variety of problems. Therapy is tailored to your own individual needs, enabling you to work at the pace which is right for you. I have worked in both the private and voluntary sector as well as the NHS. My work in primary care mental health services over the last 11 years has provided me with an in-depth understanding and experience of working with common mental health problems such as depression and anxiety disorders, including PTSD, generalised anxiety and phobias.
My first session
I offer an initial free session of up to 45 minutes where we can briefly discuss your needs and expectations, and I can answer any questions you may have. Starting therapy is a big decision, and it is important to find a therapist that you connect with. If you wish to book an initial chat, I would recommend that you write down beforehand any questions you would like to ask, and bullet-points of what you would like to work on.
Sometimes when we have too much going on, it can be difficult to focus and pinpoint the main issue; using an exploratory and collaborative approach, we can agree on how to move forward and address whatever issue is preventing you from living your life in the manner which you would like.
