I am a warm, curious and reflective therapist who has experienced first-hand the wonderful power counselling has to heal and help us create a more contented life.
I’m a Qualified Integrative Counsellor and BACP registered member with over 7 years’ experience of working therapeutically with people.
I regularly work with individual men and women who are struggling for many different reasons. I have helped them to feel better and learn to cope differently with life’s challenges.
Prior to counselling I worked in the Corporate world within Human Resources. From this I understand the highs and lows of this world and carry these experiences forward into my work.
As an integratively trained counsellor, I am able to use knowledge and skills from several approaches, which I tailor to best suit your needs:
• Person Centred
• Solution Focused Brief Therapy
• Art Therapy
If you would like to discover more on these approaches I have provided an overview section in the website.
Overview of first session
Every first session is different; I do not have a set formula as I want to be led by you and your needs. In most cases we will cover:
• Building a picture of what’s brought you to counselling
• What you wish to change and resolve in the counselling process
• Discuss any previous experiences you’ve had with counselling or other helping therapies – what’s helped or not
• What counselling is, and how we might work together.
Am I the right person for you?
There is no obligation for you to continue from this first session. It’s really important you have a chance to decide if you feel comfortable with me.
Some people know instantly, others need to go away and think. Either is fine and if unsure at all, I recommend you take a bit of time, contact a few different counsellors so as to make an informed choice for you.
Counselling is a wonderful investment in yourself and so it is important you spend your time and money in the best possible way for you!
