About me and my therapy practice
It is my belief that when an individual engages with a counselling arrangement, you create a space for yourself. A safe, confidential and creative space where you can explore thoughts, feelings, past experiences and current situations with a professional. You may find that the routine of attending counselling sessions will in itself offer comfort and structure. It is okay to not always be okay - seeking support from a trained helper can be one aspect of positive self-care and empowerment. If you were to approach me for support, I work in a warm, open and non-directive way with clients.
I work from a foundation of psychodynamic understanding and concepts. In other words, I address and encompass one's past experiences and how they may have influenced current beliefs, patterns of relating, relationship dynamics and/or low self-worth. Perhaps even a combination of the above.
I have extensive experience working in the mental health sector with a nationally recognized mental health charity, working for the NHS as a counsellor and working with young people (13-25 years). I have a particular interest in life transitions.
