About me and my therapy practice
I am an Accredited and experienced therapist and clients would describe my approach as down to earth and practical. A previous manager described me as a ‘safe pair of hands’ and creating a safe place to help you consider whatever concerns you, is a priority for me.
Feeling safe, you can explore your personal difficulties and suffering, allowing you to gain a better understanding of those issues and establish a new outlook on how to deal with these.
I currently also work for the NHS, mostly helping people cope with anxiety, depression, relationship issues and bereavement. I have previously worked for named organisations delivering specialist trauma therapy, both for adults and children. I learnt to helped individuals cope day to day with the impact of trauma and begin to build the skills needed to cope and move on, developing life skills that helped them manage their mind and body.
I work from my country home, sometimes using the setting therapeutically. My training draws on different theoretical approaches, but at the core I understand it is the relationship we have with ourselves and the world around us that is key. We are all unique and I work with the individual, using my collective knowledge to tailor an approach that best supports you to address your issues.
I am fully compliant with professional regulatory requirements and all my work is supervised in accordance with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
