About me and my therapy practice
I am a qualified integrative counsellor and psychotherapist, and registered member of the BACP and UKCP. I work with adults, who see me for support with a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, and difficult relationship patterns.
I aim to offer a safe, confidential and supportive counselling service. I believe counselling should enable you to share your concerns at your pace, and to be listened to fully, meaning without judgement or disruption. Together, we can gain understanding to help you. Counselling is a two-way process, and I work in a collaborative way. My role isn’t to tell you what to do; I may gently challenge you, or offer insights or observations, but without being authoritative.
As an integrative counsellor, I work in the way that is most suitable to you. I will draw on a number of established counselling and therapeutic approaches depending on your needs. I don’t have a fixed or predetermined way of working therefore, as everyone is different and what helps one person may not suit you. We may explore behaviours, beliefs, feelings or habits that are concerning you, which may involve looking at past or present relationships or how past relationships affect you now. I work holistically, which may include exploring thoughts, emotions and bodily feelings, as our physical sensations can help us understand what is going on for us. I also may suggest creative tools such as drawing or writing, or visualisation. How we work will be agreed between us.
I have experience in a private clinic and voluntary sectors. I am interested in how early childhood experiences affect us in the present, and curious about how we experience ourselves, and why we may feel so critical of ourselves.
My first session
I charge a reduced fee of £40 for an initial session. In this first session we can explore what you are hoping for from therapy, and I will explain how I work. My hope is that you get a sense of this from our first meeting.
I charge a reduced fee as I recognise the importance of choosing a therapist you feel comfortable with.
Should we agree to work together, we will arrange to meet weekly at a specific time.
