About me

Everyone who comes to Roots for help with difficulties and challenges that is impacting daily life are treated individually as there is no one size fits all therapeutic method. It is a bespoke process tailored in a way to work at a pace that suits you and is designed specifically to meet your needs. All clients that come to Roots are provided a structured, boundaried environment in which to manage safety and confidentiality. This ensures maximum therapeutic potential in an ethical manner as guided by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.

By building a trusting therapeutic alliance with you, and the decisions for the direction of therapy led by you we are able to initiate the process for  understanding and lasting change/development.

I named my practice Roots because I believe strongly in the impact our childhood experiences, and past behaviours have on our current life positions. Consciously, or unconsciously, we act in a ways that were modelled to us at an early age and sometimes those lessons are incompatible with the person you've grown to be. Learning that these behaviours can be re-modelled for the life you're currently experiencing can bring about significant development and growth. 'The past is a place of reference, not a place of residence, the past is a place of learning, not a place of living' - Roy T Bennett.

My client experience and training highlight my work with young people, bereaved clients, anxiety, depression, suicidal behaviour, and other presenting challenges that clients have struggled with.

One of the most important decisions in coming to therapy is choosing the right counsellor for you. Many profiles are similar and it can be difficult to choose. My advice is to make contact with a few and see how you relate to that counsellor. Investing in yourself is a fantastic way to look after you and I value your investment as much as you do.
