About me and my therapy practice

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

Do you sometimes feel unheard, misunderstood, or overwhelmed? Do you ruminate about the past or struggle to meet your wants and needs? Do you want to understand and process your emotions to enjoy life more?

Counselling can help you!

Low mood and anxiety can accumulate from daily stress and can also stem from past trauma and our upbringing. Often, when we experience intense life changes and stressors, our wellbeing takes a blow and we might feel overwhelmed and confused. Sometimes we might feel this way 'without apparent reason.

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 psychotherapeutic modalities (CBT, Person-centred, Psychodynamic) and tailor them to each client's unique needs. It also means that I work collaboratively with my clients.

 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 goals. These could be: coping with a challenging situation, becoming 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 towards your goals.

My practice is research-informed as I regularly update my knowledge with the latest studies in the field. Also, monthly, I 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 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 with a reduced fee of £20.

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