About me and my therapy practice

Do you wish that you could embrace and enjoy life instead of feeling weighed down all the time?

Sometimes, life can feel really difficult - you feel down or anxious or overwhelmed with it all. Maybe you really don't know what is going on for you - you just know you don't feel right.

Relationship breakups, family issues, bereavement, worries about finances, or work can be tough but we soldier on 'being strong' .

Sometimes we are aware that we are carrying 'stuff' from our childhood but keep it locked tight in a box because we don't know how to start dealing with it.

It may be that you are experiencing a significant life change such as separation, bereavement or redundancy and need a space to work through how you are feeling.

Or it may be that you are going through menopause and are struggling to manage your symptoms - and there are many!

I will listen to you without interruptions, advice or opinions offering a confidential space where together, we can find a way for you to move forward. 

Practice description

Person centred therapy can help you get to the root of the issue - if you imagine you have an infected cut on your arm - you can stick a plaster on it, - and it will help- but that infection is still there. What you really need to do is clean that infection out - it will hurt a bit, and you might have to build your courage up to do it, but once it's clean and healed - it is less likely to bother you again.

Using gentle, empathic guidance and helpful interventions., I will help you to untangle all those thoughts and feelings . We will go at your pace - you are the expert on your life and experiences.

I have several years experience working in a charitable organisation and have counselled carers, those with financial difficulties, those in controlling relationships, and those who have experienced childhood neglect/abandonment or abuse.

I am also menopause informed and understand the impact menopause can have on your day to day life. 

My first session

Our first session will be a 'getting to know you'session where we will decide if we are suitable to work together. It is absolutely imperative that you find a therapist you are comfortable with - so if you come along to one session and feel like we don't gel - I completely understand! This is too important for you to not feel comfortable!

Hopefully, we will find we are more than happy to continue to work together. I will explain confidentiality, how we will work together and we will look at where you are now and what you would like to achieve from your sessions.
