About me and my therapy practice

I am an integrative trauma informed therapist ,offering counselling and psychotherapy.  My passion is to assist a person's journey to emotional and psychological wellbeing and bringing positive change and transformation.

I offer Integrative Counselling, & Psychotherapy, Relationship and Couples Therapy, Trauma Therapy, Emotional Freedom Therapy and Clinical Supervision. Offering a safe, non-judgmental space for support, with issues such as depression, anxiety, grief, feeling stuck, low self esteem, unresolved traumas, childhood abuse, work related stress and personal relationships. As well as providing essential support in clinical supervision for students and qualified therapists.

I have a BSc (Hons) in Counselling and Psychotherapy, Advanced Diploma in Trauma Therapy, level 5 certificated in Relationship and Couples Therapy and an advanced diploma in Clinical Supervision of both groups and individuals.

I offer a confidential space to explore both challenging and difficult thoughts and feelings in a non judgemental and empathic way.

I believe that every person that comes to see me is unique, so I generally base my practice on each person's needs, whether that is based on negative relationship or life experiences, significant and unresolved traumas, or childhood traumas which are still affecting a person's here and now.

I also help with issues more associated with one's present life experiences, such as stress, conflicts in family relationships, overcoming relationship breakdowns, or other meaningful losses. Perhaps you have noticed that you are having difficulties building and sustaining relationships with others. Have little or low self worth, or that you have highs and lows with your emotions.

I am a registered member of the BACP and adhere to their ethical frameworks in good practice.

Practice description

My approach is establishing a therapeutic alliance, through deeper listening, open dialogue, reflection and exploration. Creating a safe enough space for me to hear your story and for you to voice your concerns, whilst using certain interventions and techniques, which help assist and accompany a person to work through and process any difficult or traumatic memories, depressive and. anxious thoughts and feelings. And also to help shift any feelings of 'stuckness', or difficulties in making important life choices or decisions.

My aim in the process, is really to help a person build a greater self awareness, and to help understand where the roots of certain issues might be coming from. Mindfully working together through any issues which may have become a stumbling block for any positive changes or self development. Therefore, enabling a better sense of knowing oneself, building self-confidence, improving the ability to make decisions, and the acceptance to overcome, and not just to survive, but to thrive!

My first session

I will ask a few questions in order to get a better understanding of you and your life experiences. This is important to establish how best we can move forward and work together. However, there is no rush to speak of certain things that may be difficult for you. This can be done only when you feel safe enough or comfortable to share.

We can assess whether a psycho-therapeutic approach, or more trauma focused interventions, would be more helpful in reducing any symptoms and bringing about positive changes.

I am also happy to answer any questions that you may have about the counselling process. We can decide and agree together how many sessions are needed, or choose to work more open ended.

There is no commitment to therapy, until this first session has happened and both parties are in agreement to continue working together.
