My Therapy Practice
I offer a warm, confidential and non-judgemental space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings. I understand how scary it can be to feel strong feelings, let alone share them with someone so I will always work at your pace with whatever is troubling you most at the time.
It may be that you have a current or recurring issue that you are looking to gain clarity of, or you may be aware of wanting to let go of a difficult past experience and the effects that it still has on you in the present. I think that most people understand that our histories affect our current ways of being, and whilst we can instinctively want to distance ourselves from difficult memories, I have witnessed how healing it can be to work through them in the safety of the therapy space.
However you choose to focus your sessions, I will work alongside you offering insights and gentle reflections. I passionately believe that you are the only expert in your life, and that sharing your inner world with a counsellor can help increase your self-awareness, build your resilience, and ultimately give you much more autonomy to live your life fully.
I am a trauma informed practitioner, and have special interest in helping people regain control over their lives after domestic or sexual abuse.
I am a qualified, BACP registered integrative counsellor. I am trained in a variety of different theories including Person-centred, Gestalt, Transactional analysis and Attachment theory. This means I have a range of approaches and interventions I can offer to help each individual reach their counselling goal.
I’m happy to work in person, online or on the telephone.
I offer short term counselling or long term therapy.
My First Session
I offer a free, no obligation 30 minute initial session online or on the phone.
This will give you an opportunity to talk about what you are looking to gain from the counselling process, and what I could offer you to support that.
This will also give you the space to decide whether I’m the right counsellor for you.
