About me and my therapy practice

Life is challenging, now more than ever. You may be finding yourself feeling low, worried, anxious, struggling to sleep, snapping at people, finding yourself unable to say ‘no’ to demands being placed upon you by friends or family. Maybe your relationships with family and friends are suffering as a result of this and you’d like to change your interactions with them and establish reasonable boundaries with them. Maybe you are not feeling as resilient as you once did.

Counselling can provide you with a space in which you will be listened to without judgment and you can explore your feelings and emotions. It is a place of safety where the unsayable can be said and you can choose to change your emotional and behavioural patterns that may no longer be useful to you. It is a place for experimenting with new ways of being and relating to others.

I am an integrative counsellor, which means I use different theories and techniques to create a therapy solution which is appropriate to you. I use elements of transactional analysis, person centred therapy and compassion focused therapy. I work collaboratively with you so that you can be true to yourself. This is all set within the safety and boundaries of the counselling relationship.

I believe we all have within us the resources we need but sometimes we need a little help to find a different way of being and coping with all that life can throw at us. You may be wanting to talk to someone but are struggling to find the right time slot and I understand how difficult it can be to fit everything in. I offer sessions in the evening and on a Saturday morning.
