About me and my therapy practice

I have practiced privately since 2011. I have a background in nursing in the NHS, having worked with cancer patients. £40 per hour-long session for individuals. £60 per hour-long session for couples. It takes courage to recognise that we need help when we are in distress and don't know how to get the help. Distress ranges from stress and anxiety about things in life: feelings of being out of control; feeling a sense of being overwhelmed or confused, depressed or sad, even for no definable reason; feeling hurt or vulnerable, angry, frustrated, desperate, or needy because of particular circumstances or our life history. It can also show up as being very emotional all the time or just as a feeling of flatness and pointlessness and as a ‘nervous breakdown’. Guilt, shame and regret also can deeply affect us and having physical pain, chronic ailments and poor health take their toll. Counselling is very effective for the long-term effects of trauma, whether it be from emotional abuse and protracted neglect, or by being shocked, horrified or terrified. We can be impacted by a particular event, which may even be in the distant past. Also, the effects of long-term grief and loss and can linger and affect us. My approach is of non-judgemental, unconditional acceptance of all that you are, and want to talk about at your pace and according to your level of comfort, in a safe space of caring, trust, confidentiality and safety. Counselling brings new insights and awareness of our problems, behaviour and distress, and it can help us to develop compassion and empathy for ourselves. I also work with couples with relationship difficulties. I want both women and men to understand one another in order to create loving partnership. My work with couples is based on the model of Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT), as developed by Dr Sue Johnson. It is a collaborative, structured, usually short-term therapy approach.
