I provide both time-limited counselling (6-12 weeks) and open-ended psychotherapy to individuals in Vernon Street, Derby.
I am a Humanistic Integrative psychotherapist working from relational and developmental psychotherapeutic theories, and am committed to ongoing regular and extensive training.
I offer a safe, ethical, confidential, and non-judgemental environment in which you and I can build a trusting therapeutic relationship. This will help you if you find yourself experiencing uncomfortable or painful emotions during your counselling or therapy. By supporting you with compassion, I will encourage you to experience the healing that can come from being curious about, and exploring, these emotions, as well as thoughts and behaviours.
During your first, free, 50 minute initial consultation with me, we will explore what you want to achieve in your counselling or psychotherapy, and decide whether we will be comfortable working together.
My ultimate endeavour is that you complete your therapy, or counselling, feeling free and able to live in ways which fulfil you and make you content and happy.
