About me

Sometimes life can just get too much! We can feel overwhelmed with strong emotions and not really know how to work with them. Are you feeling anxious, stressed, depressed, bereft, suffering with low mood? Counselling can help you explore these emotions and help you find a way forward and gain control again.

Choosing the right Counsellor is very important and can be difficult especially when you are experiencing testing times. Friends aren't always the answer, so perhaps counselling would help. I entered into counselling 14 years ago believing that sometimes it truly helps and can make a huge difference to have someone actually listen to you. Many of my clients have expressed that when they finally plucked up the courage to try counselling, that it was honestly the first time they have ever felt 'truly heard'. My promise to you is that I will work with you in a safe, caring, confidential and non judgmental way in order for you to try and find some sense or clarity with the issue you are bringing.

I am an intergrated counsellor using person centred, CBT and systemic in my work. Each model is different and we can discuss which one would suit you better. Person centred counselling is very gentle with the belief that each individual has within them the capacity to change as they already hold their own answers. CBT is more directive and looks at improving your state of mind now rather than the cause of your distress in the past. Systemic is normally used for counselling couples or any realtionship issue within a family, ie mother/daughter, gay couples, friends. I have also had extensive training in online counselling, this is very useful for clients that are unable to get out for various reasons. When I counsell online I use a platform that is fully encrypted to ensure confidentiality for all parties which is called Doxy.me.

I also offer Ecotherapy, this basically means we combine our talking therapy with nature. It’s been proven that nature can benefit both our physical and mental wellbeing, so what better than to combine the two.

I have been trained by Breakeven who specialise in people with gambling addictions. I have also worked for Boston County Council working in several children's centres working with families, children and adults covering a variety of issues such as anxiety, depression, anger issues, relationship issues and many more. I am also a fully qualified couples counsellor working with relationships, this could mean marriage, mother daughter, father son. Basically any relationship of any kind. I worked with Cruse which helps people try and come to terms with bereavement (I also include pets within this as I believe they are an integral part of a family).


I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and ensure I follow their Ethical Guidelines and Framework for Good Practice in Counselling. I am also required to have adequate supervision as stated by the BACP as part of the good practice. I am committed to developing my personal growth and professional development in order to always provide the best service I can to my clients.

I also counsel trainee counsellor whilst they complete their training as this is part of their requirement.

I am a married mother of 2 children aged 21 and 26. In order to relax I walk our 2 dogs and go running and ride my motorbike.

Fees

My fees are

Free Pre Initial Consultation phone call to discuss possible sessions booking and suitability.

This is then followed by an initial face to face consultation (approx 60 mins). All clients require this as it is the beginning of the therapeutic process. This session is about us getting to know each other and ensuring we are a good fit and for you to explain to me in more detail what the issues are. In turn I can explain to you how I work and from there we can look at the best way to move this forward for you.

If you are interested in block booking then a discount will be available but please check at time of booking.

This is a true investment in you and your life, if you feel now is the time to make those changes then please get in touch. You are worth it!
