About me and my therapy practice
I offer a warm, safe and confidential space for you to share your story and explore what’s happening for you. Whether that’s something that’s happening now, or something that happened in the past, I’m here to listen and to help you make sense of your experiences.
Ultimately, I can help you find relief.
I work with all types of difficulties, including depression, anxiety, bereavement, trauma, abuse, and relationship issues, but I have particular experience of working with young adults, people impacted by suicide, and people recovering from a difficult childhood.
I hold a master’s degree in counselling and psychotherapy and currently work with a community mental health service on Merseyside. I offer in-person sessions here in Bebington, online video sessions, and telephone sessions.
I offer a free initial session to all clients so we can get to know each other and see if we’re the right fit. If you're ready to book a free initial session, or if you'd like an informal chat before booking, just send me an email or give me a call and we'll arrange a time to speak. At the initial session we'll talk about what you'd like to get out of counselling, how we might work together, and I can answer any questions you have.
For more information please visit my website or feel free to get in touch.
In-person sessions are at my home office in Bebington. Online sessions are conducted using a secure video platform.
The core of my practice is person centred therapy.
This is an evidence based approach to helping that leverages the therapeutic relationship itself to bring about positive change. My main focus is on building a safe and supportive relationship where we can explore what is happening for you and find solutions that work for you.
Typically, sharing your story with a kind and empathetic therapist will help you to see the situation more clearly, understand where the difficulties lie, explore alternatives and make decisions about how to move forward. In my experience, therapy clients become more attuned to their emotional experience, gain insight into their patterns of thought and behaviour, understand their past more fully, process painful experiences, get better at relating to others, and make positive choices about how they want to live.
I also draw on ideas from other ways of working, as I believe that no one approach to therapy is right for everyone. In particular, my work is informed by existential psychotherapy and affective neuroscience. I find that some clients benefit greatly from discussing existential concerns and learning more about how their brains and bodies work.
My first session
I understand it can be daunting meeting a therapist for the first time, especially if you’ve never met one before.
Before we meet I will send you some information about how I work. If we’re meeting in person you would come to my address at the time of your appointment and we would take it from there. If we’re meeting online I will provide you with a link to my online waiting room - all you would need to do is click the link a few minutes before your session is due to start.
In the first session, I will talk a little about how I work, then we will explore what has brought you to therapy, what you hope to get from therapy, and what your preferences are for working together. The first session is an opportunity for me to learn a little about your life, but also for you to find out if we’re a good fit. After the first session, if you’d like to continue, we would take it from there.
I offer a free first session to all clients, so we have a chance to get to know each other and see if we're a good fit.
