About me and my therapy practice

I am an integrative counsellor offering short and longer term therapy.

When life becomes challenging or overwhelming it may be difficult to know where to turn for help.  By looking for a counsellor you have taken the first step towards finding professional support to explore your feelings and the issues that are troubling you. Talking to a counsellor is unlike talking to friends or family as it allows you a safe, confidential space to be listened to without judgement.  It can provide you with the opportunity to explore new perspectives and choices that enable the possibility of lasting change in your life.

Perhaps your relationships, whether romantic or those involving family or friends, are causing you anxiety. Are you feeling sad or low a lot of the time? Perhaps you are experiencing a loss, whether relational, job related or financial and finding it hard to cope. Have you suffered physical or emotional abuse leading to low self esteem or a lack of self worth? These are all difficulties that we can work with together, enabling you to explore the depth of your emotions and find a way to heal and feel stronger.

I have particular experience in loss and bereavement. This includes working with disenfranchised grief, a loss not always openly acknowledged by family, friends or society, which may lead to feelings of isolation and loneliness. You may have suffered a miscarriage, the loss of an unrecognised or secret relationship, or the loss of someone you love to dementia.

Practice description

My approach is integrative. In essence this means that I am able to combine suitable therapeutic approaches to work with you as an individual. My aim is to help you in developing ways of coping with whatever difficulties you are facing. Exploring your thoughts, feelings and behaviours in a safe, respectful and trusting relationship helps to provide you with a better understanding of yourself and the potential to deal with your problems effectively. I believe that given the right conditions and professional support everyone has the ability to change and live a more fulfilled life. 

Whatever the therapeutic approach, the relationship between client and counsellor is key to the effectiveness of the work. I truly believe in the positive effects that counselling can achieve and work collaboratively with you in order to build the trust essential for the therapeutic relationship to develop and grow.

My first session

I offer a free 20 minute telephone or online consultation for an initial discussion. This gives you the opportunity to discuss what has led you to seek counselling and see how it may be for us to work together.  To book an appointment, please telephone or email me.  Further information about my practice can be found on my website.
