About me and my therapy practice

I am a BACP Accredited integrative therapist. I am predominantly Person Centred and also incorporate Cognitive Behavioural Therapies, Psychodynamic and Transactional Analysis models to our work.

I work alongside you to address wellness, relationships, personal growth and mental health. Counselling is a process in which we meet to explore your personal problems and try to identify solutions. Throughout the therapy we work together to attempt to improve the difficulties you are encountering through communication and problem solving.

We would work on building a positive therapeutic relationship so that you feel able, and comfortable, in talking about the difficulties you have undergone or are currently undergoing. We will work together in helping you to see things more clearly and, possibly, from a different view point.

I am currently offering therapy online or by telephone in order to reduce the risk of Coronavirus contagion.

Practice description

I am an empathic counsellor and will meet you where you are at. I am able to work both short term and long term. Throughout the process I will check in with you to see where you are at and how you would like to proceed.

I am experienced in bereavement work with adults and children and young people.

I have been working, for several years, as a counsellor and supervisor with a charity that specialises in survivors of childhood sexual abuse and domestic violence.

I also work within an NHS Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) service. I have trained and am qualified in Person Centred Experiential Counselling for Depression working with  clients in this way for up to 20 sessions.

My first session

Our first session together would be an in depth assessment in order to learn what it is that has brought you to therapy and what you would like to get out of it.  

It would be your space to ask questions about the therapeutic work and get a sense of me in order to decide whether you would like to work with me.
