About me and my therapy practice
I am an experienced and skilled therapist/counsellor with many years clinical practice of working with people from all areas of life.
My style of working is gentle and respectful of your needs and I will be conscious of the pace you need to go at, I believe that speaking to someone you hardly know can be frightening and difficult. Therefore, our work together will be collaborative and I strive for you to feel cared for and in control of our sessions.
Having worked as a clinical psychotherapist for many years, I have had the privilege to work with people who have felt safe enough to explore in depth with me, difficulties they have not been able to share with anyone else.
I have experienced many clients grow as a result of feeling listened to by an empathic and transparent therapist and many clients have told me how much insight and self-aware they have become as a result of working with me.
The work that I do is a career path, which I have chosen as from having experienced the benefits myself from being a client in counselling I have grown as a person and I therefore i want to give some thing back. Further, I am able to understand how painful life events can feel at times for many of us.These events can be confusing, overwhelming, leaving us feeling pretty rubbish and alone in the world. However, I do believe that we can learn to overcome some of these feelings and negative thought patterns and live life in a more fulfilling way.
The work we do is collaborative in that we will decide together what you feel is the most important thing you wish to explore and you can end the sessions whenever you choose.
