About me and my therapy practice
I am well aware that at times life can be difficult; you may feel anxious, over-whelmed, worried or just not right. Or you may feel that your past experiences are having an impact on how you deal with things in your life today. Talking with me could help you in a different way than talking to a friend of family member and this is primarily because you can be honest with me without me judging you. I'm here to listen to you and to support you in working things out for yourself. My approach is open, honest and down-to-earth and I am a firm believer in the counselling process and the good that it can do.
I am a qualified counsellor and am also an accredited member of the BACP. I have many years experience of counselling clients on a one-to-one basis, specialising in bereavement, anxiety, depression, trauma and domestic abuse.
You have taken the first step towards helping yourself by starting the search for a counsellor. This takes courage and strength, and I can help you build on this - we can look at what is happening in your life, whether you're happy with it or not, what you'd like to change and how to do it.
My first session
Quite often the first counselling session can feel quite daunting, which is a very normal feeling. We can start off gradually by discussing your expectations, what it is that you'd like to achieve (and it doesn't matter if you don't know exactly, again that's very normal), and how we might work together.
This is our chance to also discuss practical issues such as how often we might meet, and when.
