About me and my therapy practice
I am a BACP registered humanistic integrative counsellor and psychotherapist. I work relationally and believe in the healing power of human connection. My training has included a BSc Hons degree at The Sherwood Psychotherapy Institute and certification in cognitive behavioural therapy. My current work at The Laura Centre with adults dealing with grief and at Ormiston Bushfields academy has included work around trauma, loss, depression, anxiety and shame. This has led me to the opening of my own private practice in Oakham and online where I am currently taking on clients.
I focus on self-development and growth to help individuals heal and recognise their strengths, creativity and choices in life. I see my clients as unique individuals and look to explore their relationship with the world around them.
I offer a safe, supportive space either in my clinic in the heart of Oakham or online via zoom or What’s app sessions. Clients can explore their presenting issues ultimately working towards developing their own personal growth
Being a humanistic integrative counsellor allows me to be client centred and work flexibly and creatively. My non-judgemental approach helps clients to process their thoughts and feelings. I believe that sharing your difficulties and pain with a counsellor and feeling valued and heard can facilitate healing and change. I regularly undertake CPD training, and I have particular interest in the areas of grief, trauma and teenage work reflecting my part time therapy work at The Laura Centre in Leicester.
My first session
It is not always easy to say why you feel the need to talk to someone outside of your circle of family and friends. Our first meeting gives you the opportunity to decide whether you think I am someone you could talk to.
