Types of therapy I offer
I believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship to bring about change and growth, to provide grounding in a crisis and to help understand and manage the painful emotions you may be feeling.
Perhaps you are coming to therapy because of a general sense of wanting to understand yourself and grow. I am here to see you as the individual you are, to listen to you without judgement, to offer empathy, and to support you as you work through challenges past and present.
It can be very powerful to feel acceptance and empathy from someone who has no vested interest in your interpretation of your life, the conclusions you draw, and the decisions you may make.
I recognise inequality and oppression make change challenging, but believe that in the right circumstances, it is possible for everyone. I will offer you a confidential space, in which I’ll support you in unpicking your feelings and growing your self-awareness.
My sessions are weekly, for 50 minutes. After contacting me, I will send you my contract and details such as my privacy and confidentiality policies, and we can arrange for a first session. This is a chance for us to explore what’s brought you to therapy now, and to find out if – and how – we can work together.
I welcome clients from all backgrounds, and recognise that your experiences are influenced by your environment, and how society has reacted to you.
I offer short or long-term work, in face to face or remote sessions. We can work on your problems together, whether it is a current crisis or a long-term, historical issue.
Training, qualifications and experience
As well as a CPCAB diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, which qualified me to practice integrative counselling, I have an additional diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling.
Alongside my private practice, I have experience of working with adults and young people, having counselled for charities and for a school. I have worked in bereavement counselling and with families affected by sexual abuse.
Outside of my counselling work, I worked in communications and PR for over 20 years, and have written on mental health and parenting issues. My communications consultancy has been focused on the charity sector, which gave me an understanding of the depth and breadth of need in our society, motivating me to move into a role directly helping people.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
Code of ethics
As a BACP member, I adhere to its ethical framework and abide by its principles in all my counselling work.
One of the outcomes of this is that I have regular, professional supervision for my work, and I take part in training to keep developing myself.
