***Although restrictions have been lifted, and we can have face to face sessions, because of the new variant, and 'possible' need for caution...I would like to encourage Zoom sessions or telephone sessions over the next few months. I am happy to offer sessions at a reduced rate (20%less) to those clients who will try this - It has been very successful! Other than that, while we can, I'll still offer face to face***
I am qualified in Integrative Therapy which means I use (and combine) several types of Therapy depending on the individual needs of my client. I work from my Therapy room in my home in Larkhall.
I offer you a confidential space where you are safe to talk about your problems and challenges. Anxious, worried, scared, very low mood, jealous, overwhelmed? We can explore whatever is needed to help you to begin to feel yourself again.
Some people hold on to issues for years, and by doing this we can really affect our overall health. I believe that many of our issues begin from experiences we had as children or young people. Working through these, making sense of them (at your own pace), it's possible to help you to see where some of these emotions and feelings are stemming from.
I can also help with tools and coping strategies for be you to be more confident of living with, and dealing with your issues in the future.
As well as working with adults, I have gained a lot of experience working with children and young people, and so I see clients of all ages.
I am fully insured and all of my certificates are available to view if required.
I attend monthly supervision.
