About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced counsellor, specialising in working one-to-one with clients who have anxiety and health-related issues, due to a nursing background and ongoing counselling work with cancer patients and their families.

My counselling approach is integrative (tailoring counselling to the client's individual needs and circumstances) enabling me to offer my client flexibility and respond in the moment in a way that is going to support my client the most.

Additionally, I offer hypnotherapy, Integral Eye Movement Therapy (IEMT), and OldPain2Go. 

 

Are Talking Therapies for you?

Do you feel it's a struggle to get through your day, perhaps noticing your heart racing or a dry mouth at the thought of that meeting, or avoiding socialising  as it feels too stressful?

Are you finding it difficult to cope emotionally with a chronic illness, tending to focus upon what you can't do, and feeling bogged down?

Have you had a cancer diagnosis and are struggling to get your head around it, or perhaps you've finished treatment and are finding it difficult to cope?

If any of these are questions that you have found yourself answering yes to, then be assured of a professional, non-judgemental, confidential space to explore your concerns, and help you to feel that you are able to cope better in your daily life and feel you can smile once more

My first session

For online clients, prior to our first session I will send out the Client-Therapist Agreement to e-sign, and there will be an opportunity to discuss this, and you will receive a copy.
