About me and my therapy practice

Do you feel like you're struggling to hold things together? Are you feeling unfulfilled, unsure or overwhelmed by life? Have you been through life changes or other painful experiences? Are you experiencing difficulties in your relationships?

Counselling is a 'talking therapy' which provides a confidential space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings and experiences at your own pace with a non-judgemental professional.

It is a space for you to explore your problems - whatever they are.

I offer open-ended, person centred counselling with a warm, genuine and non-judgemental attitude. I have experience of working with clients from varied backgrounds covering many different issues including bereavement and loss, stress, divorce, workplace bullying, low self esteem, LGBTQ+ issues and family disagreements.

I believe that you are the expert in your own life. My role is to walk alongside you as you explore your issues and to help you identify the skills and tools you have to find your own way forward. I can support you with new perspectives, resources and coping strategies, but most of all I will listen to what you need to share allowing you to feel heard.

Practice description

We can work creatively, we can talk or we can be in silence - the space is yours for whatever you need. Everybody faces challenges in their lives and we don't always have the resources to cope on our own. In these moments, counselling can help.

Whether you are a person who has counselling regularly or if this is your first time, it is normal to feel daunted or nervous at the thought of speaking to a stranger. I try my best to create a space in which you feel comfortable and safe. I offer face to face sessions or online / telephone. Contact me to find out more.

My first session

Before your first session I offer a free 30-minute phone call or face to face meeting which is an opportunity for us to get to know each other and for you to ask any questions you might have about counselling. I will tell you about me and how I work as a counsellor and you could also share what has brought you to counselling now.

After our initial conversation, if we both feel we can work together then we will book a session - face to face, online or by phone, whatever suits you. You might feel nervous and unsure before this first session but please don’t worry, this is completely normal.
