About me

Hello and welcome.  With my therapy room set within a rural hamlet I offer a peaceful setting for therapy. With beams and an open fire the room is informal and inviting, helping you to feel at ease.

The 'Psych' of Psychotherapy is often translated as 'the mind' and includes feelings and emotions.  Indeed Psychotherapy and Counselling may be described as

'a personal relationship with a professional person in which one can share and explore the nature of their troubles'

With my training in Attachment Theory, up to Masters Degree level, I offer a supportive 'secure base' within our therapeutic relationship.

Here at Harmony Therapy, I offer the opportunity for you to gain insight and self awareness thus 'clearing the way' so you can focus more clearly and decide what to do through your process of problem solving.  I endeavour to support you in exploring your problems, defining your goals and helping you clarify how you might achieve this.

I provide a safe, effective and gentle approach to support you and be alongside you on your journey in therapy.  Your thoughts and feelings will be heard and accepted without judgement and at your own pace.  Confidentiality is of the utmost importance.

Children and young adults do not always relish the thought of 'talking things through' and as such I additionally offer more creative means of exploring difficulties, through play.  Particular challenges for children and young adults which I can support exploration of include:

Coping with change

Feeling overwhelmed

Difficulties in relationships

Problems at school

Please feel free to contact me if you would like to know more or wish to take advantage of the free of charge initial consultation.
