About me and my therapy practice

Hello, I have over 14 years counselling experience in settings including GP surgeries, charities and private practice. I've been awarded Individual Accreditation by the BACP having demonstrated high standards of competent and ethical practice.

I draw from a range of approaches to provide the right help for you. Models I've studied include, Person-Centred, Psychodynamic, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT). I am also a Mindfulness teacher.

I am currently offering sessions both online using Zoom and in-person in my discreet, COVID-secure office in the centre of Shrewsbury.

We would decide together how many sessions you are likely to need to achieve your goals. Often we can make a difference in as few as 6 sessions, but more can be available if needed.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please feel free to get in touch.

My first session

 The first appointment is an opportunity for you to see if you feel comfortable talking with me, gives you an experience of counselling and enables you to ask any questions you may have about the process. It also allows me to make a thorough assessment of your situation and goals so that I can figure out how to best help you in subsequent sessions.

At the end of the first session you may decide to book another appointment, or choose to go away and reflect on your experience before deciding whether or not to continue.
