Whatever life challenge you have experienced, which may include a particular difficulty or helping you to look towards making a specific change in your life, I will offer an empathic, supportive and accepting space. Identifying and understanding your goals can help to focus the sessions on what you would like to achieve or gain through the therapeutic work. I offer short-term and on-going support for individuals and couples and use a range of strategies and techniques to help. My aim is to provide an inclusive space for all clients.
I offer an initial, free 20 minute telephone session to ask any questions you may have about the therapeutic process and to see if you would like us to work together prior to committing to further appointments.
As a qualified member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I work using an Integrative approach which means I draw on various forms of therapy to best meet the needs of the individual and couple.
Attending regular continued professional development is important and I keep myself updated with new theories and changes within the field. As an accredited member of the professional body BACP, I follow their ethical framework for working with clients and attend regular clinical supervision.
I have worked with the charities; Mind, Victim Support, Women’s Aid along with Bereavement services as well as working within the public and private sector. I have been in practice for over 14 years and alongside my private work I continue working in the private and charitable sector as a therapist and clinical supervisor.
