About Me

I believe that everyone can benefit from counselling. Maybe you are struggling with anxiety or depression, or feelings of loss following a bereavement. Perhaps you are experiencing a specific crisis or feel like you have lost your way in life and don’t know where to turn. Whatever it is that is troubling you counselling can be an extremely helpful way to explore and alleviate your distress. I work in an open and collaborative way, and offer warmth, empathy and a non-judgmental space in which to explore whatever it is that is troubling you. I work holistically and view you as a whole person not someone limited and defined by a set of symptoms or a particular crisis. ​ I hope to work with you to help make sense of your world and your relationships, and to understand the meaning you have made of your experiences. As part of this process of exploration I will work interactively and share my thoughts, feelings and questions where I feel it is appropriate and of therapeutic value. ​

Therapeutic Approach

I work in an open and collaborative way, and offer warmth, empathy and a non-judgmental space in which to explore whatever it is that is troubling you. I work holistically and view you as a whole person not someone limited and defined by a set of symptoms or a particular crisis. ​ I hope to work with you to help make sense of your world and your relationships, and to understand the meaning you have made of your experiences. As part of this process of exploration I will work interactively and share my thoughts, feelings and questions where I feel it is appropriate and of therapeutic value. Counselling and psychotherapy is not about me telling you what to do or how to live your life. Instead it is a journey of self-discovery which we will take together as we look at your past and present experiences, and the bearing they have on the choices you make and on your future contentment. One of the most important factors behind the success of counselling is the relationship between client and psychotherapist. I place the relationship between my clients and me at the heart of everything I do and so offer a reduced price introductory session (£25) in order that we can both see how it might be to work together. Counselling is at its most effective when undertaken on a regular basis. For this reason I meet with clients weekly . Sessions are one-to-one and last for 50 minutes. I offer both short-term and open-ended counselling. Short-term counselling tends to be for between six to twelve sessions, but there is always the option to extend the work.

Background

I have experience of working in the charity sector and at a low-cost counselling service, as well as running my own private practice. Prior to training as a psychotherapist, I worked in a busy commercial environment so I also have a strong understanding of the stresses of the modern workplace. I have a Masters degree in psychotherapy, in addition to a postgraduate diploma in humanistic psychotherapeutic counselling. I am a registered member of the BACP and abide by their ethical framework.
