About me

Introduction

I am a Person-Centred Counsellor and Psychotherapist and an Accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy; I practice according to their code of ethics and provide a confidential and non-judgemental environment. The relationship between the counsellor and client is crucial to change occurring and I strive to ensure that my clients feel safe and accepted enough to explore issues, sometimes for the first time.

Experience

I have been practicing for seven years and have considerable experience of working with survivors of childhood sexual abuse and issues that arise from this such as anxiety, depression, guilt, dissociation, grief and loss. Difficulty in moving on in your life can often be a result of past relationship issues or family issues and a cause of low self-esteem or low self-confidence.

As a Person-Centred therapist, I believe that clients are the experts of their world and I am here to listen and help explore troubles that are preventing clients from moving on with their life. The impact that talking in a warm and trusting environment has for a client cannot be under estimated and I believe strongly in valuing and accepting each individual.

First step

The first step is the hardest; if you decide to contact me, please leave a message and I will respond within 24 hours. I offer appointments outside of normal working hours for both short term and open ended therapy with weekly sessions of 50 minutes. We will arrange a mutually convenient time to meet and together we can assess if we will be able to work together during that first session. Thereafter, we will book weekly appointments with a review after the first six sessions.

Location

My practice is in Balsall Common with parking available.  I am within easy access of Birmingham, Solihull, Kenilworth, Warwick, Leamington and Coventry.
