Hello, I'm an experienced BACP registered couples and individuals counsellor working primarily online with Relate and also offering online and "Walking and Talking" side by side in-person therapy in the open air as part of my private practice.
My online practice is with couples and adults over the age of 18 years. I offer warmth and understanding with plenty of time to explore whatever difficulties you may be facing. I can help you to reflect on any painful feelings arising from these difficulties and together we can find new ways to manage these and you can develop new and positive pathways forward.
I have experience of working with visually and hearing impaired people and can offer understanding of the difficulties which are frequently encountered. Telephone counselling for visually impaired clients and email for hard of hearing can opening counselling up and bring real benefit.
In addition to online, I offer professional counselling by safe and confidential, socially distanced side-by-side walking and talking in the open air.
Psychodynamic, Integrative, including post grad training in TA, CBT and EFT.
Emotionally Focused Therapy.
