About me and my therapy practice
Finding a counsellor can be daunting! You’re faced with a number of questions that you may not yet have the answers to – what qualifications should I be looking for? How will I know who is right for me? What is the right kind of price to pay? What if I don’t feel comfortable talking to this person?
Before we begin our work together, I offer a consultation session, free of charge, where we talk through all of these things and any other questions or concerns you may have.
In the meantime please read on to learn a bit more information about me and how I work.
I’ve been a qualified therapist for 10 years and I hold an MSc in Counselling Psychology and a BSc in Applied Psychology.
I also have further specialist training in a trauma treating psychotherapy called Advanced Integrative Therapy (AIT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Mindfulness Meditation.
My aim in supporting you is to build a safe, confidential space where you feel you can place trust in me to share the things that are troubling you. We work at a pace which is right for you, for the length of time that is right for you. There is no one size fits all and we will work together to ensure that you get the most out of the therapy and come away feeling that you can live a life that is fulfilling for you.
I work in an integrative way, drawing upon my qualifications and experience to offer a responsive and dynamic way of working depending on your needs. I offer short term therapy which may suit people who would benefit from a toolkit of coping strategies to help specific aspects of their mental health – such as anxiety, stress or sleep difficulties for example. Or we can work longer term if you feel you would benefit from a more exploratory way of working together where we would talk in depth about your life experiences and how these have impacted you.
