About me and my therapy practice

I am a friendly, experienced counsellor with a warm, supportive way of working with you. My approach is honest, open and clear. You may want counselling to give you the time and space to offload, to say out loud the things that really bother you,  to process and then let go of unwanted thoughts and feelings. 

I see you as an individual person with your own way of living your life. We are all different. Together we explore your situation, your choices, your relationship with yourself and others. We look at the 'rules' you seem to live by and check together if they really work well for you. We acknowledge the painful parts whether they be coming through as anxiety, stress or depression. We find ways that help you to move forward with a greater sense of self respect, self compassion and well being.

I value equality, honesty, individuality, fairness, appropriate humour and the right for each person to be free to live by their own values and wishes.

Practice description

During lockdown I offer effective therapy  via video using Zoom or FaceTime, by phone and by email exchange. All work well to help us form a trusting relationship so that you feel at ease to 'speak' and to work through your thoughts and feelings. For some people the anonymity of phone or email is beneficial. For others, a video call feels more welcoming and comfortable. If you are not sure, just give me a call or an email so we can chat through the options before we begin. I like to be flexible and find what suits you best.

My first session

It's important that you find the right therapist for you. At the first session you may have questions, you may be unsure of how it works and what we do. I will help you to feel at ease, talk through what we each expect of each other, give you an idea of how person centred therapy works and ask what brings you to counselling now.

About me and my therapy practice

I offer a supportive, consultative supervision space for us to explore your process, your challenges and your successes. My way of working is person centred with a creative, reflective, sometimes playful approach. I will say what I see, listen well, direct and challenge you to inspire confidence and growth.

Practice description

I am comfortable supervising therapists and supervisors online using Zoom, FaceTime, and instant chat during lockdown. We can work well together using whichever method suits you. We can also mix and match, try more creative approaches, use whiteboards, as you may be doing with your clients. 

My first session

I offer you a free introductory half hour so that we can check that we feel comfortable with each other and are well enough aligned in our ways of working and being with our clients/supervisees.
