About me

What to expect in therapy sessions

The first session is longer, and will last an hour (a standard session is 50 minutes). This gives us an opportunity to spend time having a full therapy session as well as take time answering questions you may have of me and how I practice. You will be given the opportunity to give personal details and consent to how the counselling relationship will operate on things like confidentiality, boundaries, notes and record keeping. The spirit of all sessions, and especially the first is to put you in control of your therapy experience.

Whatever reason or difficulty brings you to therapy it is the relationship between us that heals. I will work to meet you and your experience in a compassionate, accepting, non-judgemental and empathic way, being present with and alongside you, helping you explore the issues you bring.

About me

I am approachable and open, with plenty life experience behind me. I have always wanted to work where I could make a difference to people’s lives. As a counsellor I want to support and facilitate you through your challenges and have a commitment to putting your best interests at heart. My career before training as a therapist covered roles that required sensitivity, discretion, compassion, acceptance and resilience to difficulty.

Having had a significant and life changing experience of counselling I was drawn to continue the journey of self-development which has brought me to the point of becoming a counsellor myself and I feel I have found a role that I thrive in.

I have over four year's experience in the Mental Health field working with adults of all ages. I have gained experience working with: carers; personal dilemmas; childhood trauma; abuse and historic abuse; bereavement; grief and loss; depression; disabilities; chronic illness; low self-esteem; suicidal thoughts; intrusive thoughts; things just not feeling right or feeling sad; numbness and numbing out; coping with change; and, the considerable stresses of modern living.

My professional interest extends to mindfulness in counselling as it focuses on what is felt by the body in the moment. Feelings are the sensations of emotions and reconnecting to our bodily sensations can help us identify what is happening with us. Being more accepting of the moment as it is rather than what we wish it to be is a route to a happier life. Finding ways to be more in the moment helps us reach that. To build on this I am undertaking a Masters Degree in Mindfulness and Compassion.
