Based in Leek in the stunning Staffordshire Moorlands, I offer an integrative counselling service, with a specific focus on psychodynamic techniques. I use empathic listening and work in a non-judgemental manner, offering unconditional positive regard to all of my clients.
Primarily I work with anxiety and depression issues, self esteem/self-worth, concerns around confidence, client-led dream interpretation, and addressing adoption issues. I can advise on mindfulness and a variety of meditation techniques and I also conduct guided visualisations. I have a deep interest in working with clients who are experiencing deep philosophical and spiritual concerns or crisis and also a deepening interest in working from cross-cultural perspective.
I generally work from home, where I have a designated counselling room free from interruption, thus ensuring a safe and confidential space where the client's issues can be securely explored. However, I can be contacted to discuss other arrangements regarding session environments i.e walking/eco-therapy. I offer a negotiable rate for people who are low waged or unemployed.
I am fully DBS checked and work with a wide range of age groups from 13 years and upward. Please contact me for further details.
