About me and my therapy practice

A warm welcome.

I'm an experienced BACP registered member, with a degree (BSc Hons) in counselling, an enhanced DBS check and GRASAC accreditation to work with sexual violence.

Together we can explore what you feel ready and safe to share. What does it feel like to take off masks, shedding protective layers that keep the authentic, vulnerable self safe while navigating through challenging or traumatic times? 

Some people come for counselling because they are going through a challenging time (e.g. work, family and friendship related) or experience themselves as being misfits, lonely, stuck, anxious, burned out, depressed or alienated from the world. I will be at your side to listen; endeavouring to relate to your unique circumstances and way of being; facilitative of your change and growth process.

About me
I am open to adapt my approach to suit your personal preferences and needs, as you might at times prefer a rather directive, creative, reflective or experimental way of therapeutic exploration. This could include contemporary, compassion focussed cognitive behavioural therapy (CF-CBT), mindfulness, music, art, guided imagery, voice and body work. 

"Systems of authority undermine our self-authority to secure obedience, thus self-esteem becomes the root of revolution." Gloria Steinem

About me and my therapy practice

Choosing a counsellor with whom to connect and build a trusting therapeutic relationship can feel daunting, even risky, yet also empowering and hopeful. What does it feel like to take off masks, shedding protective layers that keep the authentic, vulnerable self safe while navigating through challenging or traumatic times? Together we can explore what you feel ready and safe to share - whether these are current, buried or almost forgotten experiences. I will be at your side to listen; endeavouring to relate to your unique circumstances and way of being; facilitative of your change and growth process.

I am a qualified integrative counsellor rooted in humanistic, person-centred practice. My approach is, with your consent, to use therapeutic techniques that follow the natural path of your journey, while being mindful of our differing experiences, your expressed needs and vulnerabilities. Some people come for counselling because they are going through a challenging time (e.g. work, family and friendship related) or experiencing themselves as being misfits, lonely, stuck, anxious, depressed or alienated from the world.

I am open to adapt my approach to suit your personal preferences and needs, as you might at times prefer a rather directive, creative, reflective or experimental way of therapeutic exploration. This could include contemporary, compassion focussed cognitive behavioural therapy (CF-CBT), mindfulness, music, artwork, guided imagery, voice and body work for example. To ensure you feel safe and benefit from the sessions, we will review the counselling process at regular intervals. Whether you seek short term counselling, would like to work towards specific goals or start a long term journey to explore something you can’t quite put into words or make sense of - together we can discuss the way forward.
