About me and my therapy practice
Hello and welcome.
I am a qualified mental health nurse with experience of thirty seven years’ working in the NHS. I have built on my nursing career and knowledge by undertaking further postgraduate studies in counselling and psychotherapy. I have experience of working with people with a range of mental health needs and have worked in a variety of settings including community.
At times of emotional distress and crisis, feeling can be overwhelming and painful. Change and confronting difficulties can be frightening, it can feel that staying with familiar ways of being is the safest option. I believe that everyone has the inherent potential to grow, change and heal. I offer a safe , warm, supportive, nonjudgmental space to explore issues of concern, relationships, and unhelpful patterns of behavior.
I provide a confidential counselling and psychotherapy service for Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire. I offer counselling sessions in a private, quiet environment a few minutes walk from Ledbury town centre. I can tailor the number of sessions to your individual needs providing long and short term work, and can offer evening and weekend appointments.
How will I work with you ?
I work in relational manner, this means the relationship created between myself and the client, becomes the vehicle to explore the areas of concern. I seek to build positive , empathetic relationships with clients so that the relationship between us becomes an supportive environment to promote healing, growth and change.
