About me and my therapy practice
I am a trained and qualified Integrative Counsellor, which means I can work with a few modalities although I work primarily as a Person-Centred counsellor.
I am open, easy to talk to and empathetic, which hopefully means you will gain trust in me and feel empowered enough to talk through those issues (Present or past) that are causing you mental distress.
There will be no judgement of you or what you bring, only acceptance.
I will provide an online space that is safe, confidential, where you can take a breath, process your thoughts and emotions and begin to put things into perspective.
For the past three years, I have been working (Face-to-face, online and phone) at a busy GP practise with a truly diverse client base, offering short-term focused therapy (Six sessions) with the option for clients to extend and work long-term.
Over the last 9 months alone, I have completed over 400 sessions online, covering a wide range of mental health issues.
My practise is online (Zoom) or telephone-based, allowing you the flexibility to attend sessions wherever you are - at home, at work, away, in the car.
My sessions are fairly open and unstructured, allowing you to explore your presenting issue, your past, or whatever is on your mind this week. Chances are, your presenting issue won't be the only one that crops up in sessions.
I will offer a space where you can express yourself, your emotions and thoughts openly and honestly.
I won't tell you what to do, give advice nor fix you. I can only help you to find the answers that are right for you.
