About me and my therapy practice
We can all struggle sometimes - we may not always want to share our deepest, most painful, private feelings and thoughts with friends and family. It can be hard to make the initial step to talk to someone, I offer a sensitive and warm approach to make that as easy as possible for you.
I have worked with people experiencing trauma, relationship breakdown, bereavement, low confidence, low self esteem, low mood, anxiety, negative thinking, depression and stress. In my working life I have supported young people in the care system, and people who have become homeless and led chaotic lifestyles often experiencing abuse, substance misuse and mental health issues.
I work in a non judgement way - believing that no one has had the same experiences and we’re all doing the best we can.
I offer warmth, empathy and a safe place for you to explore your issues, I won't advise or tell you what to do - believing you hold your solutions and together we can explore and find a way forward, exploring together at your pace.
I am a BACP registered Integrative Therapeutic Counsellor based in Reading I also work online via zoom and google meet and offer telephone counselling. Sessions can last for up to 50 minutes.
I have a confidential and tranquil room in Reading town centre, close to parking and good public transport links. I can also offer telephone and online counselling sessions either via zoom, whatsapp or google meet.
I work 'integratively' combining Person-Centred and Psychodynamic therapy and other approaches to suit each person. We are all so different and may benefit from different approaches, techniques and ways of exploring at different times.
I am led by you and we will explore what you want to each time we meet, sometimes it can help to look back at what has happened in your past, and past relationships to help understand the present and the future that you would like.
My first session
I offer a free 20 minute consultation session either online or over the phone - whatever works best for you. This gives us time to get to know each other a little, for me to understand what brings you to counselling and what you want to achieve. I can also answer any questions that you may have. If I feel I'm not the best person to work with you I can sign post you to other options that may be able to better support you.
Most importantly you decide if you would like to work with me.
If you do decide to go ahead, we can agree a time and day that suits you to meet for our sessions - I can also be flexible and mix and match face to face, online or telephone to suit you.
