About me and my therapy practice
I offer face-to-face, online and telephone counselling to individuals over the age of 18.
I am a qualified person-centred counsellor. I have experience working with clients experiencing difficulties around relationships (family, friends, colleagues), identity, self-esteem, alcohol and substance use, and coping with traumatic experiences.
I have experience of working with clients across a range of ages (from age 15, up to and beyond retirement), different ethnic backgrounds, sexualities and of working with both neurodivergent and neurotypical clients.
I am committed to offering a service which is welcoming to all clients in a supportive and non-discriminatory manner.
If there is an adaptation or adjustment which would enable you to experience therapy more fully and comfortably which has not been discussed, please let me know.
I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and I abide by its Code of Ethics and specific Guidelines for Online Counselling and Psychotherapy. This includes keeping up to date with continuing professional development and supervision.
As well as working in private practice I also work as a volunteer counsellor at the PF Counselling Service and also with the PF Young Adult counselling service.
What to expect?
When we work together you can expect a safe, non-judgemental place to explore your thoughts and feelings around any area of your life which you wish to change, explore or understand more.
As a person-centred counsellor I work alongside you as a facilitator to your own developing process. Although sometimes it may not always feel like it, as a person-centred therapist I believe you are the expert in your own experience, my role is to create the space where you can explore your thoughts and feelings safely, with support and gain insights.
I aim to create a therapeutic space where you feel comfortable and able to explore different areas of your life, to say the things which might seem they can’t be said elsewhere, or you feel might not be understood. This will be your space and your session to bring your stuff and explore as you wish. This might mean you’re bringing a whole range of emotions which can tumble out, but feel assured all feelings and emotions are welcome to be explored.
We may work together for just a handful of sessions or it could be for longer if there are more complex issues. We can decide together how many sessions are appropriate and then review this regularly throughout our time together.
My first session
I offer a free initial 30min telephone consultation for all new clients.
In this session we can discuss what you would like to get from counselling and I can answer any questions you may have. We can also discuss the boundaries around our sessions and what the process could be like.
