About me and my therapy practice
Though my approach to counselling is integrative, I am person-centred trained. This means accepting and valuing you as an individual. Only you know what it is like to be you.
My background in philosophy also brings an existential aspect to my work.
Life at times can feel confusing and complicated. Fundamental fears such as loneliness and meaninglessness can cause us to behave in ways or do things that we are not fully happy with. This approach seeks to identify these fears and explore ways of accepting them into our lives.
I have been in private therapeutic practice for over 15 years.
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and as a qualified and registered counsellor, these letters can be put after my name: MBACP BA (Hons).
I also hold a clear and regularly checked Enhanced Disclosure and Barring (DBS) check.
In addition to face to face, I also offer online work and outdoor therapy.
In addition to counselling, I spend time outside the therapy room managing support services for socially excluded and vulnerable people across the southeast England.
My first session
Finding the right therapist for yourself is very important.
In support of this, I offer a free introductory session. This usually lasts for half hour.
This gives you the space to explore your reasons for wanting counselling and to decide if I am the right person for you.
Contacting someone for counselling can be a challenge in itself. So whatever you do next please remember that by just visiting this page, you have come closer to taking that first difficult step.
