About me

I am not currently doing face to face sessions but can offer online/telephone counselling where appropriate.

I offer bespoke therapy for children, adolescents and adults, working both on a long-term and short-term basis. I understand that people come to therapy for many different reasons. Some may know what it is they want to work through, for others this may take time to pin point. I know that what ever has brought you to therapy will be of great importance to you and I will meet you with genuine interest, warmth and empathy.

  • Getting started

Once you've made contact, we will arrange a convenient time to meet. You may be nervous and that's ok, I understand it can be a big step. We will begin with an an introduction and assessment session (no therapy takes place at this stage) so that i can get a feel for where you are at and what you're seeking from therapy. This also gives opportunity for us to get to know each other and see if we are a good fit to work together. If the dynamic is comfortable we will contract for further sessions. It may be that we agree on a fixed amount of sessions or look to work on an open ended basis, depending on what is required.

  • How I work

As an integrative therapist with a core training model in Transactional Analysis, I combine a number of therapeutic modalities and techniques to help you get the best out of your therapy journey. My specialism is working with children and adolescents but I am happy to work with all ages. I provide a safe, non-judgmental and confidential space where you can explore your thoughts, feelings and your story so far.

Whether you're an adult, a child or somewhere in between, I am happy to work creatively using a range of different media. This can be a great way to work when words are few or hard to find.

We will work together to explore your current situation/difficulties and look at what it is you really want out of your relationships and life. The more motivated you are to participate in the work, the more likely you are to benefit. As the work together progresses we will have regular reviews to ensure you are achieving what you want from therapy and to reflect on how you are finding the experience.

I believe the relationship between therapist and client is key and when it's good fit, great therapeutic work can be done. Therefore, it's important you to find a therapist you feel comfortable working with and that the relationship feels right for you. If I feel I'm not the right therapist for you, I will talk this through with you.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
