About me and my therapy practice

Hello & welcome to my profile. 

Life can be overwhelming and emotionally challenging at times. Reaching out to a therapist for support can take courage in the midst of pain & suffering. To help you through this step, i offer a free 30 minute telephone consultation, so that you can get a feel for the way i work and whether we can work well together. And for you to express your concerns and what you would like to achieve from therapy.

I am an experienced and professionally trained Person-Centred Therapist. My primary focus is working with you in a relaxed relational manner, where the quality of the therapeutic relationship is key to the effectiveness of any therapy. I aim to provide a warm, welcoming and safe environment for you to explore the thoughts, feelings & psychological issues that are often pushed to one side, as we try to cope with our daily lives.  Ultimately to be your `safe haven`, where you feel empowered, improve self-awareness, and find some peace of mind.

 My counselling experience covers a wide range of issues from; low self -esteem, depression, anxiety, relationships; specialising in  Addictions, bereavement, grief & loss, trauma-both recent & historic, usually the result of neglect, physical or sexual abuse, PTSD& dissociation.

     

Practice description

There is no set time scale or limited number of sessions. Some clients may find that only a small number is enough, or some may feel they need longer. 

My approach is to work at a pace and direction that is comfortable with you. So that we can focus on the topics which are most important to you. By reflecting your own words back to you, i hope to assist you in gaining a deeper understanding of your thoughts and emotions. There will be no expectation on if or when you want to cover certain issues, this is your choice and i respect the reasons for you holding back if you feel you need to. 

 

My first session

When you are coming to therapy, it is important to find the most appropriate therapist that meets your needs and for you to feel relaxed and at ease.

 I offer an initial 30 minute free telephone/video call consultation as an opportunity for us to get to know each other and whether we can work well together.  

If you feel comfortable then we can book our first session. Where i will carry out a full assessment including the reasons why you have chosen therapy and to explore what therapy is and what therapy is not.

If any of this resonates with you and it seems to be what you are looking for please phone or text me. 

 I offer remote and face to face sessions.
