I currently offer sessions on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from a dedicated room in my home. I also offer online and telephone appointments. I am available for daytime and evening sessions.
I appreciate some people may not be able to or want to attend weekly, therefore I am able to work flexibly at a frequency that meets your needs.
About me and my therapy practice
I recognise how difficult taking the first step towards seeking support can be and aim to create a safe, welcoming and confidential space in which you can begin your journey to receiving the support you need.
As a person-centred counsellor, I believe the relationship we create is key to supporting you to explore your experiences, process your emotions and develop the confidence and skills to make the changes you desire. I believe everyone has the potential for personal growth and change and feel that the counselling relationship allows you to unlock that potential. My non-judgmental and empathetic approach allows clients to build trust with me and share their experiences at a pace that is comfortable for them.
I have over 15 years experience working with people in helping and supportive roles and qualified as a counsellor in 2018. I am an experienced practitioner who is committed to ongoing training to ensure I can give the best to my clients.
You may be feeling depressed or experiencing anxiety or perhaps a loss of direction or sense of purpose in your life. You may have experienced a significant event in your life such as a bereavement or relationship breakdown or you may be troubled by events in childhood that are affecting your ability to live your life the way you want to. I can offer a space for you to make sense of your experience and work towards a happier way of being.
I recognise that everyone is unique, some people simply need a space to be heard while others are seeking more structured support and tools and techniques to support them to make changes. I work in a way that is respectful of this and try to offer a range of different ways of working.
In addition to my initial training, I have experience of using the principles of cognitive behavioural therapy to help clients recognise how their thoughts and beliefs can influence their feelings and behaviours. I can help you to identify unhelpful thinking patterns and support you to challenge and change these.
I also have an interest in the benefits of creativity for mental well being and I am able to offer this in my counselling sessions if this is something that you are interested in. Working creatively can allow you to access and explore your emotions and experiences in a different way to simply talking about them. If you are someone who struggles to identify or verbalise your emotions, using creative tools may be a really helpful way to do this.
