About me and my therapy practice
I offer you a warm, compassionate and non-judgmental approach. You may want to talk about anything from family or relationship issues, anxiety, anger, depression, loss or whatever is important to you.
I have over 10 years experience as a therapist: senior practitioner, service manager and supervisor in charities, in the NHS and in independent practice as a therapist, supervisor and trainer of therapists.
All of us experience emotional difficulties at some point in our lives. We can find it hard to cope. Counselling provides a safe and confidential space where you can talk about what is happening in your life, explore thoughts and feelings, find ways to cope and help begin to think about solutions for the challenges you face. Counselling can offer general support or can focus on more specific issues such as generalised anxiety disorder, panic disorder, addictions, abuse, anger resolution or bereavement. You can use the time to explore what is happening for you.
With so many therapists you might find it hard to know who is best for you. That is why I offer a low-cost initial consultation where I can explain how I work and you can ask me any questions you may have. You can then decide whether counselling with me will be helpful for you.
The type of counselling I offer is based on the person-centred approach. This means I trust that you have the capacity for healing and growth. I work in a way that allows you to explore individual choices and decisions at your own pace. Together we can work towards short-term goals and solutions, or take a long-term relational approach.
I have experience in supporting people in a broad context, however, I have worked extensively with people who have experienced trauma, sexual abuse, depression and anxiety, sex and sexuality and gender issues.
