About me and my therapy practice

Hello, I'm a Pluralistic/Integrative counsellor with a passion for supporting people to overcome their difficulties and improve their well-being.

Do you sometimes feel unheard, misunderstood, or overwhelmed? Do you ruminate on past events or struggle to communicate your wants and needs? Do you wish you could get on track with your emotions and enjoy life more?

Counselling can help you!

Anxiety can accumulate from day-to-day stress and can also stem from past trauma, deeply rooted in our upbringing. Often, when we experience trauma, intense life stressors or blows to our well-being, we feel overwhelmed and confused.

Let’s talk about it! It helps immensely to have a safe and confidential space where our concerns are heard and understood in a warm and non-judgmental way. I strive to create such a space where insight, new perspectives, solutions, and growth, can be cultivated.

Practice description

I work pluralistically, meaning that I derive tools from the various modalities of psychotherapy (CBT, Person-centred, Psychodynamic) and tailor them to each client's unique needs. It also means that I work collaboratively and transparently with my clients, and together we decide the best course of action for their therapeutic journey.

 Working with me, you’ll have a safe space to bring in your concerns. Whether it be long-term or short-term, past or future-oriented therapy. We’ll work together to clarify your needs and aims. These could be being more assertive, gaining self-understanding and emotional education, managing stress, improving your self-esteem or enriching your communication skills. I’ll walk alongside you and gently guide your way toward your goals.

My practice is research-informed as I constantly update my knowledge with the most recent studies in the field. I also regularly undertake clinical supervision where a more experienced counsellor monitors and inspires my work to assist me in offering a high-quality and ethical service.

Counselling takes commitment; it can sometimes feel challenging, but it will offer the most precious rewards!

My first session

I understand that finding 'the right counsellor' can be a daunting, stressful experience. For this reason, I offer an initial appointment, without any further obligation, to meet each other and see if we can work together.

This initial appointment lasts 30 minutes and costs £20.

Thereafter, weekly counselling sessions last 50 minutes, are booked a week in advance and cost £60 per session. Fortnightly sessions last 70 minutes and cost £70 per session.
