About me and my therapy practice
Some people come with a particular problem they want to address. Others want to look at their emotional life in general. And sometimes, people are not very clear what the problem actually is, but know that there is something that is not quite right.
I have been trained to deal with all sorts of emotional difficulties and I have worked with clients who presented some the following issues: abuse, anxiety, bullying, depression, feeling suicidal, gender and sexuality issues, relationship difficulties (personal or work related), stress, trauma, etc. I currently volunteer as a counsellor at a LGBTQ+ charity.
Quite often, a person may talk about a particular problem, which is related to other difficulties or aspects of their lives. In these cases, I will help the client to make links between their initial complaint and what goes on in their lives, so to gain a better understanding of why, how and when the problem started.
Other people might seek counselling for personal growth. There is no right or wrong and we can discuss your aims during our first session, which can also be reviewed as we continue to work together.
I offer sessions online (i.e. zoom), by telephone or outdoors (walk and talk therapy) for individuals and couples.

My first session
Our first session will be an opportunity to say hello and make sure we are comfortable working together. You will also be able to have a feel about what therapy is like and have a chance to ask any questions and to decide whether or not counselling/therapy is something you would like to pursue.
If you are happy to go ahead and I feel I am able to meet your needs, we will arrange a course of subsequent sessions. Sessions are at a regular time each week, throughout the duration of our time working together and they run for 50 minutes. This will be your time - I will be there with you, to support you, listening and responding objectively and with empathy.
