About me and my therapy practice
Thank you for taking the time to look at and read my profile whilst you consider an array of counsellors. I know how daunting it is once you decide that you need help with your difficulties or challenges to then choose a person to share those experiences with. I am passionate and committed to helping people reach their full potential, emotionally, in order to promote a healthier and harmonious "all round" balance to a persons well being and to their daily lives. I have over 20 years of experience supporting mental health in a care and guidance setting with adults and young people along with counselling domestic abuse victims under the UAVA (United Against Violence and Abuse) umbrella.
I am an integrative counsellor who is committed to client centred support that draws from different theoretical approaches to empower my client's make those well informed decisions for real life situations. Working in the "now" we will look at what is presenting in your daily life that is upsetting the balance or from a place of feeling "stuck" and struggling to move forward. From time to time we may have to look at how our past is playing out in our present to help us understand if there is anything from the past that may be bringing about distress to the "now". Working through those unwanted, unresolved feelings in a calm, confidential space allows us to explore what changes need to be worked through in order for you to live a happier, healthier life. I am not a one size fits all therapist and will work with each client independently and with their own struggles in order to help empower you find your own coping strategies.
I offer home visits to support clients who feel more comfortable in their own surroundings. I also offer a more bespoke list of arenas such as walking and talking around our local countryside. I know the fear of sitting in a chair so happy to work with your inner hurts in the outside world. I also offer a range of rooms that are clean, calm and confidential - these options will be discussed during our initial telephone appointment. Should you wish to embark in online counselling - I offer zoom meets of which I will create for ease of use. It is essential that you have a strong area of connection for an online meet to be successful.
My first session
Prior to our first session I offer a free non obligatory 30 minute consultation. During this time a short assessment will be conducted to understand what has brought you to counselling and to see if we are the right fit to help guide you forward to a more harmonious you. The working relationship is so important for trust to be built and for you to feel comfortable and safe in working through those difficult emotions. During this appointment we will discuss outcomes and amount of sessions that may be needed to reach a happier you.
