About me and my therapy practice
I feel passionately that everyone should be heard and understood. I am mindful that sometimes we need support to find our voices to do this and to allow us to make sense of challenging and difficult situations in life.
I am a warm, compassionate, creative professional, fully qualified with 20 years experience allowing you to be heard and understood in a safe setting. Working from the foundations of the Person Centered approach allows me to offer the core conditions of Empathy, Congruence and Unconditional Positive Regard.
Respectfully we can work together in a way that suits you best. I am able to offer face to face sessions as well as walk and talk therapy and remote sessions via zoom.
I have worked in education, charities including Hospices and in the NHS for the last 20 years as well as in private practice, supporting children, young people and adults therapeutically.
I trained in the Person Centred approach and have developed a wide and varied tool kit which I use to support each unique individual.
I work creatively to support each person in finding their voice and have a range of materials available for you to explore should you wish to. Sometimes its hard to find the right words and drawing, painting or clay may allow you to express yourself with more ease.
I am also a fully qualified Mindfulness practitioner.
My first session
Its a big decision to find support through talking therapy, it may be something you have thought about for some time and I understand that the first time you meet a therapist, you may feel worried and anxious about this. I offer a free 20 minute telephone consultation where we can work out how to put you at ease, to ensure that I am the right person to support you and to work out the best way to do this.
