About me and my therapy practice

If you’re looking for quality individual therapy sessions with a certified psychotherapist that cares, then you’ve come to the right place. I believe that therapy is a collaboration; I am supportive of my clients every step of the way but believe that the most important part of the work is done by YOU as you develop self-knowledge, reflection and find ways to navigate life's most complex matters. 

Practice description

My ethos is to provide professional and compassionate counselling and psychotherapy services. Underpinned by a psychodynamic belief that the present and future are absolutely interlinked with the past, and that much of our current thought and behaviour are patterns we unconsciously follow. Therapy is a brave adventure where a client must be supported to explore their emotions and work towards understanding themselves and their issues. It is essential to provide a safe and supportive environment --bounded by a clear and ethical framework, at Clavis Counselling, sessions are tailored to meet each client's individual needs as they seek clarity and pursue well-being.

My first session

Research has consistently shown that it is neither the theory nor the style of therapy that makes a difference-- it is the relationship between counsellor and client. Meeting before you make the commitment to work with me is essential, and hopefully we can discover whether or not we are a good therapeutic fit.  Book a free, introductory appointment today and see how we can work together.
