About me and my therapy practice

It isn’t always easy to ask for help when we need it and it is a brave thing to admit to ourselves that there is a problem and that something needs to change. I imagine you are here because you want help with something in your life.

I am here to help.

I will listen to your story, help you express feelings and thoughts and make sense of them, recognise patterns in your life and adjust them if needed or release unwanted ones and ultimately change your circumstances; either by assisting you to bring change to your external circumstances or by aiding you to do as such to your internal landscape - often both.

There are so many different situations and circumstances in life that cause us pain expressed in different forms : anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship issues, loneliness, bereavement, lack of purpose and so on..  Counselling can help us lead a happier, fulfilling life. Ultimately, I believe we all have the answers we need within us and my goal is to assist you in finding your own.

Practice description

I believe the most important element for therapy to be successful is the relationship between client and therapist and the trust developed between them that allows the work to take place. My approach is, therefore, relational: I provide a therapeutic relationship which supports you to examine your experience and feelings, learn strategies for coping, develop resilience and explore your options for change. 

My first session

Finding the right therapist for yourself is very important and it can often feel daunting. That’s why I offer all prospective clients a free introductory session to meet and get a sense of me, see how we might work together and explore how Counselling and myself may be of help. This first session is also an opportunity to discuss your expectations and desired outcomes from therapy and address any questions you may have for me.
