About me and my therapy practice

 Hello, I am a warm and compassionate counsellor, who has a real enthusiasm for helping individuals work through their emotional issues such as trauma, loss, anxiety and self-esteem towards healing and improved well-being, making real positive changes in their lives.

Living in a busy stressful world we can struggle daily with our personal difficulties, leaving us feeling misunderstood, judged, anxious, overwhelmed and alone.

Making the decision to seek counselling can be really daunting, I can support you through your counselling journey by creating a safe, calm and confidential space for you to talk freely about your personal difficulties, where you will be listened to, understood with sensitivity, without being judged.

Practice description

My counselling approach is person-centred, which means I collaboratively work with you to explore your personal challenges at your own safe pace, help you gain a deeper understanding, discover your strengths, develop new ways of coping, reconnect with your inner values and self-worth towards healing, resolution and positive changes.  I aim to build an equal and trusting relationship with you, so that you feel more empowered to make authentic choices and better life decisions.

I can incorporate CBT tools and techniques, which may help you identify and challenge unhelpful thinking patterns and behaviours, in order to develop positive changes.

I am a registered Rewind Practitioner with the International Association for Rewind Trauma Therapy (IARTT).  ‘The Rewind Technique' is a non-intrusive and effective treatment that can help reduce or even remove PTSD symptoms such as flashbacks, nightmares and painful symbolic reminders of a traumatic event. 

You may want to learn about mindfulness and meditation, where I can teach you how to cultivate moment-to-moment awareness with less judgment and more self-compassion, which can improve your emotional well-being and promote living more mindfully.

My first session

I offer a 15 minute telephone consultation which is free without obligation, to discuss what brings you to counselling and understand your individual needs and expectations.

The first session cost is £35, which is an opportunity to see if you feel comfortable and happy to work with me as your counsellor and establish an agreement to work together. 

Counselling sessions thereafter cost £45 per session (sessions are 50 minutes duration).

Please contact me on 07707 062481 to book your free without obligation 15 minute telephone consultation.

I look forward to hearing from you.
