About Me:

My approach is integrative which means I draw on a variety of models and techniques that best suit my client’s individual needs as I believe we are all unique. Before becoming a counsellor I had a working background in publishing and photography, with a keen interest in wildlife and the environment. I worked as a massage therapist for 10 years, where my interest in health, the human body and the mind developed. I am interested in the connection between physical and mental health and promoting holistic care and wellbeing. I have experience of working in the finance sector and corporate environments, where stress can be a common occurrence.

Deciding to embark on counselling does require a financial commitment, with this in mind for those on low incomes I can offer reduced session rates, as well as for students and those training in counselling or psychotherapy. Please contact me to discuss.

Description:

I strive to provide a warm and non-judgemental space for my clients to talk, believing the relationship and connection between counsellor and client is fundamental to client self-exploration and personal growth. I work collaboratively with each client so I can tailor my approach, this is important, as we are all unique. Offering a safe and confidential space for the expression and understanding of feelings.

I may also use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for exploring thoughts and behaviour, Behavioural Activation for depression, or Mindfulness to help focus on the present. I work in a client-centred way, encouraging feedback to help guide any treatment suggestions I make. My aim is to support each client to reconnect and develop the confidence to be the expert in their own life.

I can offer the flexibility of short or longer term therapy. Sessions are usually booked for 50 minutes, however longer sessions are possible. The frequency of sessions is entirely up to each client, options include weekly or every other week, and may differ depending on individual needs.
