About me and my therapy practice

My approach to therapy is grounded in the belief that every person is unique and has the inherent ability to heal and grow.

I work as an integrative therapist drawing upon a variety of therapeutic modalities, including person-centred therapy, psychodynamic theory, cognitive-behavioural therapy and Internal Family Systems, to help clients develop coping skills, gain insight into their patterns of thinking and behaving, and build greater resilience. 

My ultimate goal is to create a supportive and compassionate environment where clients feel heard, understood, and truly accepted.

How might counselling sessions help you?

  • Through the therapeutic process, individuals can gain insight into their challenges, develop coping skills, and work towards making positive changes in their lives.
  • Identify and explore the patterns, triggers for recurrent thoughts, emotions and behaviours.
  • Understand the role of our nervous system and triggers to behaviours.
  • Improve communication and problem-solving skills, as well as strengthen relationships with others.
  • Manage stress and adopt, healthy coping mechanisms.
  • Rediscover true self, unique qualities, personal and strengths.
  • Provide support and encouragement during difficult times and help individuals to feel more hopeful and empowered.

My first session

After the initial email, I would like to organise a suitable and agreeable time to discuss your needs, thoughts and expectations on the phone. 

During this free, 15 minute conversation, I will ask some generic questions which will help me to form a basic assessment of presenting issues and needs.

It is a great opportunity to:

  • Discuss how you feel about accessing therapy.
  • Ask any questions about the counselling work.
  • Discover how comfortable you feel talking on the phone with me - a gauge for compatibility and comfortableness. 
  • After this telephone call, I will send two documents to complete - A client assessment form and counselling agreement alongside some available time sessions.
