About me and my therapy practice
Inspiring you with fresh perspectives, I work confidently and successfully with individuals suffering from anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties and also with those searching for new meaning and purpose.
I come from a background of nursing, qualifying within the NHS as a first level registered general nurse in 1987. Over the years I found myself developing a special interest in the individuals and families whose lives were touched by personal tragedy. I noticed ordinary people demonstrate remarkable acts of strength, courage and fortitude in the face of adversity. To this day I remain humbled by those who invited me to stay with them during private moments of distress, and perhaps even crisis. I believe it was during these times when I first learned how best to respond in a professional, yet real manner. This way of 'being' seems to help the success of my therapeutic work with others.
I now work as a highly qualified, experienced psychodynamic counsellor and offer an effective style of talking therapy recognised for psychological health and wellbeing. I'm passionate about my work and aim to facilitate sessions to a standard of excellence, so you can get the best from my professional expertise and from your therapeutic experience. By talking together in confidence, I can help you understand why you think, feel and do those things you do! Opportunities are then created for effective, lasting growth and change, and also for an acceptance of what perhaps, cannot be changed. Emotions can be powerful and sometimes they have an impact on our bodies too; it helps to talk.
Clients often tell me they enjoy the way I work and look forward to our sessions. I listen carefully and actively engage with you so that you feel heard, understood, valued. The process helps increase lots of positive attributes to include your individual worth, self esteem, confidence etc., and it improves relationships. Confident in my ability to support you when you're feeling vulnerable, I strive to work sensitively with you, yet always in a consistent, purposeful way. I care and your feelings matter.
