Is low self esteem holding you back? Maybe you don't feel heard .I'm here to listen and together we can look at how you find your voice again.
Feeling self conscious may be affecting your work and social relationships as you may often worry what others may be thinking about you . You may feel you are not enough which may lead to increasing anxiety as you withdraw from social situations ? Does it feel like everyone else seems confident and that you are alone?
I help people with feelings like this and who struggle with not feeling ‘enough’and want to let you know you are not alone.
Maybe some of these issues you have been dealing with have meant that to get to this point to start looking for support has taken courage, well done you are here. I understand and in this space, together we can help you move forward and achieve the change you seek.
Training, qualifications & experience
As well as a qualified integrative therapist I am also an experienced cardiac nurse with a MSc in Cardiology and have worked in the NHS for many years. One of the reasons I trained in the counselling profession is as a result of working in clinical research where I was able to spend time with patients who felt able to share their stories . I saw how powerful it was for them to feel listened to.
I have experience of working with clients who have felt overwhelmed by their anxiety and feelings that they are not enough. I have witnessed the potency of people feeling and being heard. Together we can work through those feelings so you feel empowered.
I am a humanistic integrative therapist which in essence means I will put you at the centre of all I do and will use different theories and skills to help you work through and unlock what has brought you to counselling.
I work with clients on an individual basis and as such the therapy is tailored around you to meet your needs. I am mindful that there is a not a 'one size fits all' approach, we are all unique in our uniqueness.
I am an individual member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) which means I work within their ethical principles and guidelines working with integrity and fidelity.
More information about me :
I understand how difficult it is to reach out .You may worry you don't know what to say or that you will feel pushed or pressured and I want to reassure you we will go at your pace.
Taking this next step can be difficult and it may be easier for you to drop me an email please do if you prefer that to calling.
Either way I offer an initial free no obligation 20 minute session via zoom where we can discuss your hopes, needs and wants for counselling. If you should decide to proceed we can work on a short or long term basis.
I very much look forward to speaking to you.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
