Description:

People can benefit from counselling for many reasons; to deal with thoughts, feelings and behaviours that may be causing distress; for support in times of difficulty; or to seek greater self-awareness and fulfilment in life, enabling growth and deeper understanding.

It is not always easy to speak to friends or family about difficult or personal issues and it can help to speak to a counsellor who will not judge you or tell you what to do. Counselling can give you the opportunity to be heard, to enable you to make your own decisions, in a supportive and confidential environment.

If you think counselling could help you, please do get in touch and we can arrange an initial appointment to see how we can work together.

I practice from a humanistic integrative approach which means that I use theories and techniques from various psychotherapeutic perspectives. I also use a relational analytic approach which uses the relationship between therapist and client to explore and deepen the work. We will initially  discuss the reasons for you seeking therapy and if we are happy to proceed, we will arrange an initial session in which you will have the opportunity to find out if you think counselling could help you and if so, we will work towards an agreed plan for our therapy.

It is usual to plan for six or twelve sessions, with regular reviews to assess how the therapy is going and we can add or reduce the number at any time. There is no obligation to continue and you may finish therapy at any stage, although it is beneficial to work towards a planned ending. Sessions last for 50 minutes and are usually held at the same time each week, although fortnightly sessions are also available.

I am currently studying on the Masters Programme in Counselling and Psychotherapy (Advance Clinical Practice), at the Minster Centre in London. I have a Foundation Degree of Arts in Counselling (Passed with Distinction) from the Universities of East Anglia and Essex. I am a Certified Cyber Therapist, having trained at the Online Therapy Institute.
