I can offer a warm, non-judgmental, safe space for you to explore anything that is troubling you.
I am an integrative counsellor which enables me to tailor your needs with the use of different models such as humanistic (working in the here and now), psychodynamic (looking at how past experiences shape us) and CBT (goal setting and links between thoughts, feelings and behaviour are explored).
I work with the treatment of anxiety disorders and depression, stress, eating disorders, bereavement, OCD, PTSD, major life change, isolation, loneliness, relationship difficulties, trauma, abuse (sexual, emotional or physical) and phobias.
I have a particular interest in working with clients facing the challenges of living with a chronic or terminal health condition and/or carers looking after someone with a long-term health condition. It can often bring up feelings of uncertainty, fear, anger, loss and grief. I can support you and walk alongside you at whatever stage of your journey into the acceptance and adjustment of your ‘new self’.
The most important aspect of any positive therapeutic experience is that of the therapeutic relationship based on trust, confidentiality, autonomy and respect.
I wish you all the very best in finding the right therapist for you and do look forward to meeting you if you feel that could be me.
My sessions (inclusive of initial assessment) are 50 mins @£40 per session.
I have therapeutic insurance.
