About me

Why People Come For Therapy.

There are lots of reasons why someone may consider coming for counselling. It may be that they are trying to come to terms with a loss or bereavement or are finding it difficult  to cope with the stresses and demands of everyday life. It may be that feeling and emotions about events in their past are affecting how they are living in the present. In fact someone may not even know the reason but feel that they would benefit from talking to someone in a supportive and confidential environment.

Whatever your reason for considering counselling please note you are not alone. Recent statistics show that 1 in 4 of us will suffer from some form of mental illness during our life time. The talking therapies such as counselling and psychotherapy are recognised treatments in conditions such as depression.

About me and How I work.

I am a qualified psychotherapist and counsellor with a background of 25 years’ experience in nursing and midwifery. My approach is Humanistic and Integrative, meaning that whilst my work is based on Humanistic principles I also integrate theories from other approaches tailoring the work to each individual client's needs. The work I do with a client is as unique as the person themself.

I believe therapy can aid healing by providing a therapeutic relationship which is non-judgemental, authentic and based on trust.

I offer a safe space where I work with individuals on short or long term basis to help them explore their feelings and gain a greater understanding about issues they may be facing. This may involve looking at how they are feeling and behaving in the present but also may explore events and feelings from the past which may be affecting them today.

In addition to my work in private practice I also currently work with survivors of sexual assault and abuse. I also have experience of working as a therapist within a G.P. setting and in an university counselling service.

I have an enhanced DBS certificate, am in regular supervision and abide by the ethical framework of the B.A.C.P. and Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute.
