About me and my therapy practice

Are you struggling with low self esteem, anxiety or grief? Does it affect your life & relationships and stop you doing the things you want? I can help you learn how to manage low mood/anxiety and improve your self esteem, relationships and develop a more positive outlook in your life - you deserve it and it can be done!

I don't believe in 'one size to fits all' so I use different approaches in response to the needs of each unique, client (including CBT, mindfulness as well as client centred therapy). I'm down to earth and while I will challenge you, I go by your lead as to what you want to work on and for how long. I have experience of working with clients who are experiencing a range of issues and have particular interest and experience of working with anxiety, low self confidence/esteem, grief/loss and relationship & parent to be issues/concerns (including fertility/miscarriage).

I am seeing clients face to face with certain precautions and public health guidance measures in place. However, I also offer telephone counselling & on Zoom.

What next?

I offer a free, initial telephone consultation (around 30 mins). This enables us to explore what you may be looking for in a Counsellor, as well as for me to explain a little about how I work so that we can decide if I am able to meet your needs. If you would like to book a telephone consultation please do get in touch and let me know times to suit.

Practice description

I work from a designated, comfortable & private consultation in my home.  It is up one flight of stairs with accessible toilet facilities if required.

My first session

The initial telephone consultation I offer is a chance for us to explore a little about what you're looking and what I can offer you. If we then go ahead and schedule a 'face to face' session, I will give you information about where I am and confirm times etc. I will then also send you a copy of my standard contract for you to read before our first session as well as a copy of my Coronavirus policy.

At the first session I will take some information from you and explain more about how I hold your confidentiality/personal data etc and we can talk more about what you want to achieve from counselling and agree goals and explore ways of working.
