About me and my therapy practice
I am passionate in the belief that everyone has the capacity for growth and change and my intention is to help all clients reach their full potential. As a person I am friendly, caring, non-judgemental, down to earth, warm and welcoming. I work in a person-centred way which strongly emphasises a relationship between the counsellor and client which is built on trust and acceptance and that this can enable healing and positive change. I offer a confidential, secure and calm space in which together we can explore any difficulties you may be experiencing, and life changes you are trying to cope with. We will work at your own pace as I am aware that no two people are the same and so will adapt what we do in therapy in order to meet your unique, individual needs. The most important thing is that you feel free to explore your feelings, feel heard and validated in your experience and can achieve a better understanding of yourself. This may mean looking at the past and letting go of some of the old ideas which hold you back and building a sense of self-esteem and a greater ability to trust yourself.
Counselling can be liberating, and I believe humour definitely has its place, but it can also be challenging and extremely emotional at times, so it is essential that you feel safe. In support of this important principle, I undertake regular supervision and am committed to continuing my personal development which includes keeping my skills and knowledge up to date (please check my website for more information)
Alongside counselling, I also work part time as a group leader for children and young people. I facilitate peer support groups for bereavement and mental health.
Practice descriptionI have worked in a number of different agencies which means I have experience of working with a wide range of people and very diverse issues including : anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, addiction, chronic pain, disability, stress, relationships issues, bereavement and feeling stuck/loss of purpose.
My first session
Accessing counselling for the first time can be daunting, I am mindful of how overwhelming it can feel so I offer a free online or telephone initial consultation appointment lasting up to 30 minutes (via zoom or telephone only) to establish if I am the right therapist for you. This will be an opportunity to consider how we may work together. We can use this time to discuss what brought you to therapy what areas you would like to work on and allow you time to ask questions. I can offer short- and long-term therapy, depending upon your wants and needs.
