About me and my therapy practice
I have a broad experience working both within the NHS and in a private setting . My focus is on being alongside my clients in both a supportive and growthful way so that we can explore what has brought them to seek counselling at this point . We all need to to explore difficult feelings when times are hard. Sometimes it can take a lot of courage to make the first steps towards seeking help. I believe we all have the capacity to grow and change but sometimes our past experience and patterns of relating can make us feel stuck and at a loss as two how to move forward.
I have experience working with loss, depression, anxiety bereavement , IVF, miscarriage, cancer , and relationship and work difficulties. I have worked extensively with adults and young people in NHS/GP surgeries, in a university and in Private Practice.
I have been a tutor on a counselling degree programme and on a certificate training course.I also offer supervision for counsellors
I am registered as a counsellor/psychotherapist with major health insurers
I usually see people for either short term therapy or for open-ended counselling . My practise is in my home and I also work online with zoom. I am currently following government and my insures guidelines for seeing clients .
Counselling sessions last for 50 minutes and are usually at the same time and day every week.
My first session
