About me

Hello,

When life isn't what you want it to be it can help to talk things through with somebody objective, who can help you understand what is going on, what is holding you back and how to move forward. That is what I am here for.

The first session

The most important thing when choosing a counsellor is that it's someone you feel comfortable with. To help you find out, I offer a free 15 minute phone or zoom chat so that  we can meet and talk about what you want from therapy. I'll also tell you more about how I work. This will help you decide if you think we can work together.

How I work

I see the work as a journey where we uncover the thoughts, feelings and beliefs that are unconsciously running your life. Often these have been strategies developed in childhood that you are still using now.  Sometimes they can be useful, sometimes not. In understanding them you can get back in the driving seat and decide what is most useful to you here and now.

Transactional Analysis

I work using a theory called Transactional Analysis. Our basic principles are that everyone can learn and change. I work as your ally and objective partner, using my theory to put words to some deeply held feelings. We will work together to gently understand the things that are keeping you stuck. I will walk the difficult path with you towards a place where you are more consciously in control of how your life works.

Training, qualifications & experience

A Certified Transactional Analyst, I hold a masters degree in Psychotherapy and am an accredited member of UKCP, IARTA and EATA. I also hold a couples therapy qualification.

I have worked with adults, adolescents and groups on issues such as relationships, depression, low mood, anxiety, panic attacks, stress, identity issues, childhood trauma, abuse, neglect, grief and existential crises.

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.
