About me and my therapy practice
I am an integrated therapeutic counsellor based in Ivybridge, working in a professional and private location.
I'm passionate about my own personal development and I love understanding what has made me the person I am today. My own circumstances led me to seek out counselling over ten years ago. Life events had led me to a place where I had far more questions than I had answers.
I was anxious about counselling at the beginning, and sometimes I found it hard going, sometimes it was just a safe space for me to talk to someone that was able to listen without prejudice. Over time the relationship with my therapist developed and grew; they understood me better, they knew when to challenge me and when to simply be supportive, ultimately I trusted their judgment and respected their view, and this provided the environment for my growth during this time. Our sessions were sometimes light and related to day to day events but could also be highly emotional and tough; it was generally during these times of genuine honesty and depth that I really found the answers to my questions.
I believe that whatever your catalyst for change is, ultimately is irrelevant, the fact you’re looking here is the most important part because you’re looking for a change and this the beginning.
My aim is to provide a safe and peaceful environment to facilitate your journey.
I believe in the benefits of slightly longer sessions; this is partly to allow you to settle into a mindset where you can get beyond your daily distractions and focus on you. This, of course, is flexible and can be varied according to circumstance or preference.
I understand that everyone’s needs are different, so I, therefore, ask you to contact me so that I can understand your requirements fully.
