About me

Introduction

I am a Person-Centred Counsellor and Psychotherapist and an Accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy; I practice according to their code of ethics and provide a confidential and non-judgemental environment. The relationship between the counsellor and client is crucial to change occurring and I strive to ensure that my clients feel safe and accepted enough to explore issues, sometimes for the first time.

Experience

I have been practicing for eleven years and have considerable experience of working with survivors of childhood sexual abuse and issues that arise from this such as anxiety, depression, guilt, dissociation, grief and loss. Difficulty in moving on in your life can often be a result of past relationship issues or family issues and a cause of low self-esteem or low self-confidence.

As a Person-Centred therapist, I believe that clients are the experts of their world and I am here to listen and help explore troubles that are preventing clients from moving on with their life. The impact that talking in a warm and trusting environment has for a client cannot be under estimated and I believe strongly in valuing and accepting each individual.

First step

The first step is the hardest; if you decide to contact me, please leave a message and I will respond to you as soon as possible, within 24 hours if I can. I offer appointments outside of normal working hours for both short term and open ended therapy with weekly sessions of 50 minutes. We will arrange a mutually convenient time to meet and during that first session, together we will assess if we will be able to work together. Thereafter, we will book weekly appointments with a review after the first six sessions.

Location

My practice is in Balsall Common with parking available.  I am within easy access of Birmingham, Solihull, Kenilworth, Warwick, Leamington and Coventry.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I offer a therapeutic space to enable clients to feel they can explore the issues that are causing distress.  I feel that when a client feels safe and not judged, it is possible to open up and talk about how they are struggling, building a foundation of trust.  I have experience of working with survivors of childhood sexual abuse and feelings of loss.

I also have experience in working with families, parents who are struggling with their adolescents and feeling overwhelmed and with young people in their teens or twenties who are struggling with confidence or relationships.
