About me

Face to face counselling, online counselling and therapy in the park.

As we begin to ease our way back to 'normal', many people may struggle to understand how they are feeling.

You may feel nervous about gathering in larger groups again, or about returning to work.

It is understandable that you may feel anxious about the easing of restrictions, I would like to support you through this process, knowing you are not alone experiencing anxiety or depression. It is important to go at your own pace and not overstretch yourself. I offer face to face counselling, online counselling and  therapy in the park.  

I am an Integrative Counsellor/Psychotherapist. I am a registered member of the British Association  of Counselling and Psychotherapy  (BACP) and am guided by their ethical framework and procedures, in order order to enhance my practice.

Counselling can help you to realise that change is possible, especially in the  world we are living in today. Sometimes we can feel overwhelmed by our emotions, maybe because of things that have happened to us in our past. Sadness, depression, anxiety or anger, all of these can interfere with our enjoyment of life, cause problems in our relationships and keep us stuck.

My aim is to provide a safe, confidential space in which  you will feel heard  without  fear of being  judged or critised, and where you will feel valued and accepted for who you are. As a Counsellor/ Psychotherapist, I blend different theories and approaches to suit your specific and indivdual needs and work collaboratively with you.

Each client is unique and I endeavour to meet you with compassion, warmth and genuineness. My role is not to advise you, but to support you as we explore the issues you bring to counselling. I believe that you should feel in control of what we cover and how we work together in our sessions. I aim to help you gain a greater understanding of yourself and how you experience life, and to encourage you to tap into your inner resources to make positive change.

The initial assessment will give you the chance to talk about the difficulties and concerns you are experiencing  (past or present). However, there is no need to commit to counselling at this stage, you may want to go away and decide if you  would like to work with me.

Additional information

INITIAL CONSULTATION;

If you are looking for a counsellor I offer a low cost, intital consultation so you can decide wheter you want to work with me

The Purpose of the Initial Consultation?

 I understand that choosing a counsellor can be daunting, particulary if it's your first time. You can tell so much about a potential counsellor from their online presence so I like to give all my clients a chance to meet me face to face before choosing me as their counsellor. It is also a chance for me to learn a little about you and I how i can best support you.

What Can You Expect From the Initial Consultation?

When you arrive, once you've made yourself comfortable, we will talk about what's going to happen during the session and the importance of and limits to confidentiality. I will answer any questions and attempt to address any concerns or anxieties you might have. You will then have a chance to tell your story and what you what to get from counselling. Some people fiind this pours out of them with ease whilst others find it harder to articulate. There is no right or wrong way to do this and I will make it as easy as possible for you. 

If you're feeling anxious during the session which lasts One hour, I will do my best to put you at ease. if you find that emtions well up or you become lost for words, that's OK. There will also be time for you to ask any questions you might have about me.

What Happens If We  Don't Go On To Work Together?     

If, at the end of the session, I don't think that i will be able to help you with your needs I will do my best to point you in the direction of someone who can. If you don't think I will be  the right  counsellor for you, you can let me know at the end of the session or have a think about it and let me know later. You might, for example , want to meet some more counsellors before making a choice. if you decide not to return after the initial consultation I will destroy any personal data you have provided me with and any notes I might have taken.
