Pronouns – She/Her
Facing the underlying often painful feelings we experience as humans can be incredibly difficult and something we would rather avoid. If only it were that easy! Often these feelings spill out from under the surface and can impact our daily lives in unwanted ways.
Talking about painful experiences can feel like an unnerving, intimidating prospect. I offer a space where you will be supported whilst you sit with these feelings and explore them at a pace which works for you. We will work together to explore the underlying pain and how you can move forward in the future.
My primary approach is Person Centred Therapy (PCT) but as an Integrative Counsellor I also use other modalities in my work including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Transactional Analysis (TA) and Attachment Theory.
My life experiences in a range of settings (social care, local authority, charity and educational) have shown me the incredible adversities people face, reinforcing that the time and space counselling provides can be life changing.
Each person is unique so as part of the first session we complete an assessment together. This gives me the opportunity to ask you questions about your life and what has brought you to counselling so I can understand your goals and needs. I can also answer any questions you may have so that you can also get a sense of me, how I work and if you feel comfortable to work with me.
I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy); as such I abide by its ethical framework, have regular supervision and engage in continuing professional development. I work with adults aged 18 and above and am happy to work in person, over the telephone or online using Zoom.
We recognise that making that initial call to a Counsellor is a big step and can be daunting. To ease the process, you can contact us by either phone, text or by simply filling out the form below to make an enquiry.
