In practice as a therapist for more than a decade, I specialise in counselling and psychotherapy to support individuals experiencing relationship difficulties, anxiety and low self esteem.
- Do you feel easily overwhelmed and lacking in confidence?
- Feel like you're struggling to connect with others?
- Wish you could 'move on' and get your life back on track?
The therapy I offer is called the person centred approach. This is a non-directive type of counselling and psychotherapy which means that I walk along beside you to help you find your own best answer to what you're looking for. You don’t have to do anything special to prepare for the sessions - just bring yourself. Your thoughts, feelings, hopes and fears are important to me. Nothing is expected of you and you will not be judged or diagnosed but you will be heard and I will pay attention to the way you see and feel about things.
This can really benefit you if you are feeling stuck or are having difficulty trusting your own judgement. Clients I have worked with have reported feeling calmer and more able to:
- Trust their own thoughts and feelings
- Connect with friends and loved ones
- Resolve dilemmas
- Identify creative solutions
- Feel more ‘playful‘
WHAT HAPPENS NOW?
Step one: contact me today for a brief discussion about your needs, using the phone or email address below.
Step two: book an online video or telephone appointment, lasting 50 minutes. This initial consultation will help you decide if you feel my way of working could be positive for you.
Since qualifying in 2007 I have worked in many different settings including the NHS, children’s services and community services. I developed and delivered a bespoke gardening therapy practice for adolescents and, prior to my career as a counsellor, I worked for many years as a creative in the recording industry so I understand the distinct pressures of creative/commercial environments and cultures.
As a BACP registered and BACP accredited counsellor, I abide by the BACP’s Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions and regularly undertake professional development training to expand and develop my practice. I have regular clinical supervision and am fully insured.
