About me and my therapy practice
You may be at a point of not knowing what direction to take, perhaps feeling overwhelmed by circumstances or emotions. Taking the first step into counselling may be a starting point for change.
I have 11 years' experience working with adults with anxiety, depression, stress, low self-esteem, relationship difficulties, health issues, bereavement and trauma.
As well as my private practice, I work with a charity taking referrals from the NHS, Victim Support and Employee Assistance Programs. I combine theory and interventions from different psychological appraoches. This enables me to be flexible to work with different needs.
I offer a caring, attentive, supportive space, where we work together through your difficulties, to empower you to find your own way forward and identify what you need to improve your life, emotional well-being and build resilience for further life challenges.
I will be interested in your perception of life, how you have come to this view and whether you may want to change outdated beliefs, distorted perceptions or self defeating attitudes. As you become more self aware you will gain insights to what may troubling or limiting you. It can lead to a clearer view of the choices and possibilities open to you and develop your own ways to move forward confidently and optimistically.
I work one to one with adults aged 18 and over.
At present I am working remotely using Zoom or by phone.
I offer a free phone consultation (up to 15 minutes) for you to decide whether you think you would like to have a first session and there is no obligation to continue after this initial session. You can also email me to ask any questions you may have.
I am able to work short-term (usually up to 6 sessions) or longer for deeper exploration and sessions are held weekly.
My first session
At our first session I will take some details from you as part of an assessment to ensure I would be the right person for what your require. I will ask what you would like to be different in your life, to work towards your goals and intermittently, we will review how we you are experiencing our work, to ensure you are getting what you need from our sessions.
