About me and my therapy practice

Hello, I am passionate about helping people who are struggling with life just now.  My counselling practice in the centre of Hereford is grounded with knowledge from working in mental health agencies.  I have extensive experience in supporting clients dealing with grief, abuse, depression and anxiety helping them to cope and live a fulfilled life once more. 

I provide a relaxed, friendly atmosphere where I can establish a unique style to suit your requirements for healing.

If you are going through a difficult time, don't be alone, we can face whatever you are going through together.  If you are struggling with feelings around sadness, anxiety, stress, loneliness, despair, grief or suicide ideation.  I listen with an empathetic approach offering  reflection and support to allow you to personally heal and grow. 

I understand how challenging life can become and will support you in finding the power to achieve a more satisfying life.  I believe everyone deserves to feel heard, understood and respected because I think each individual has their own answers. 

Practice description

I specialise in person - centered therapy providing safe, confidential, non-judgemental conditions.  I believe everyone everyone is capable of finding their own answers for future success.  I also use the integrative approach to incorporate CBT techniques and Psychodynamic therapy to support my client's unique issues to find solutions and clarity to help them live a fulfilled life again.  

My counselling room is a warm, comfortable, bright and welcoming space in the town centre of rural Herefordshire.  I offer face to face, On-line, Telephone, home visits and walk and talk sessions.

I offer a free 15 minute phone or online chat where we can chat to establish what you need and the kind of therapy I offer.  This time gives you space to ask questions/concerns you may have about starting therapy.  After this time it gives you a chance to see if we could build a therapeutic relationship.

My first session

Before the first session I will send you my counselling agreement, contract and privacy statement via e-mail for you to look at.  Then at our first session we will sign all the documents together for my records, which I will store in a secured locked cabinet.  On-line and telephone clients can do this electronically.

During our first session there will be an assessment.  This is where you can share an insight into the difficulties and concerns that are impacting your life.   This will allow us to establish what you would like to achieve from therapy and what I can offer to meet your unique needs.  We will then begin your session where you will feel relaxed to share your thoughts and feelings so you can start your healing process.
