About me and my therapy practice

When we feel lost, overwhelmed, confused, or even burnt out, we often need some support in finding our feet. I look forward to offering you that space to explore what is happening for you. I am a trauma-informed counsellor, with experience in supporting clients from multicultural and multilingual backgrounds, as well as clients who identify as neurodivergent. 

I work from a genuine and caring place, and often bring elements of psychoeducation in my work with clients. This process aims to help your understanding of all those bits of you that make you who you are. In my experience so far, this has been a key element to help my clients to understand their feelings, accept or even challenge their thoughts. It also allowed them to create a calmer and more enjoyable experience for themselves.

I will support you in identifying what your strengths are, what healing and growth may look like for you, and how you can create a fulfilling and authentic experience for yourself. 

Practice description

The counselling sessions will be guided by what brings you to therapy and we will work together to explore any difficulties or barriers you may be facing. I use an integrative approach in my work with clients, which means that I bring techniques from modalities I have trained in, to tailor our work for your unique experiences.

My foundation of training in 'Person-Centred Therapy' allows me to work from a caring and non-judgemental place. This form of therapy is based on the belief that everyone is capable of grow if they are in the right environment. On the way we may also incorporate techniques and exercises from:

• Solution Focused Therapy (SFT), which can bring a focus on your strengths to identify how you can achieve goals that we set out together.

• Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), which aims to help you identify, challenge, and understand any interactions between your thinking & behaviour patterns that may influence your wellbeing.

My first session

During our first session we will use the space to find out what brings you to therapy and explore our contract of confidentiality, so that you have an informed decision when attending our sessions. The first couple of counselling sessions may also involve finding out what works for you, we may explore what has or has not worked so far.

Depending on your psychological and emotional needs we may create a 'plan of action', in which we identify together areas you wish to work on. This can always be adjusted and will be reviewed throughout our work together. Above all, I want you to be in control of your growth.

Alternatively, there are times when clients benefit from less structure and wish to explore life as it happens for them. Sometimes a listening ear can be just what we need to overcome the difficulties we face, to feel heard, validated & share our burden with someone who is objective to our situation.

Feel free to get in touch, if you wish to book a first 20 minutes telephone consultation free of charge, where we can explore how I can support you. I offer both short and long-term therapy, as well as concessions for clients who struggle with their financial situation. 

If I am unable to answer, I may be in a meeting or counselling session, so please leave a message with your preferred contact number, and I will get back to you within 48 hrs.
