About me and my therapy practice
I have received training as an integrative counsellor, which enables me to rely on a variety of counselling approaches to tailor sessions to each client's particular needs. Giving advice is not the goal of counselling; if advice were effective, there would be no need for it as most individuals receive advice throughout their lives. Instead, I strive to walk alongside you, feeling your pain and challenges as if they were my own, so that you may face and embrace challenging emotions and decision-making. I accomplish this by providing a secure, judgment-free space where you can feel truly heard and understood. As we work together, I hope to establish a solid therapeutic alliance that will help you make better decisions, trust yourself more when making those decisions, and generally grow stronger, more resilient, and more accepting of any difficult challenges or emotions you may be facing. Therefore, it is intended that treatment would enable you to recognise how to assert yourself and work towards self-acceptance rather than needing approval and validation from outside sources.
I provide a safe space enabling us to safely explore difficult emotions together, with empathy and an accurate understanding, which is different from any other relationships most may experience. Furthermore, as a trauma informed counsellor I am able to draw on CBT techniques for anxiety whilst providing psychoeducation in this area
I am currently able to offer face to face, telephone and online counselling and have experience and training in both of these areas. All that is required is that you have a private area at home where you are able to partake in the session confidentially without any interruptions. I will have a private confidential space in which the sessions will be carried out.
My first session
Prior to the first session, a free assessment will be provided so I am able to assess if my services are suitable, this is a great opportunity for you to get to know how I work and wether you feel I am the right fit for you. Counselling can feel vulnerable so having the right fit with your counsellor is essential. The assessment is around 20 minutes long.
