Thank you for taking the time to view my profile.
It can be hard to find the answers to your difficulties particularly when you are feeling overwhelmed, unsure that you can trust in your ability to make decisions, feel confused by past experiences, struggling with changes to recent relationships or personal circumstances.
Seeking counselling can often feel quite daunting: taking that first step to make contact can sometimes create its own anxiety. Many people come to therapy not knowing where to begin, what to expect, or whether they will be able to talk openly to the person sat in front of them.
As a counsellor, I am here to offer support and help you find the answer to, or acceptance of, your individual experience.
Together, we can explore the complexities of your life and begin to understand the impact on your emotional well-being: which if left unresolved can sometimes create physical problems such as interrupted sleep patterns, loss of appetite, and low energy levels, leading to isolation and a sense of loneliness.
Being a person-centred therapist means that I offer a non-directive, client-centred approach. I value your worth as an individual which is expressed through my continued efforts to build a trusting therapeutic relationship by offering you empathic warmth, understanding, and acceptance, confidentiality, and relating to you with ethical integrity.
I am a person-centred counsellor with a First Class Honours Degree in Counselling & Psychotherapy, and a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. I have supported clients through a range of issues whilst working within two statutory organisations, I currently continue to work within the NHS.
Person-centred therapy is widely used in the UK and is known to be very effective: with clients continuing to experience positive change and growth after therapy has finished. If you would like to find out if counselling is for you, why not give me a call or send an email, and we can arrange a time to get together for a free, no obligation, meet and greet session. This will give you the opportunity to find out about me, the counselling I offer and how I can help you, before deciding whether you would like to attend counselling.
However, if following your free introductory session you decide that person-centred therapy is not for you, I am happy to discuss your needs and refer you to an appropriate colleague.
My therapy room is based at the Bridgewater Clinic, which is a private clinic, where I provide a quiet, relaxing, and confidential space for both men and women to explore their individual experiences.
