My Practice is based in Penrith and Carlisle. I have been in practice over 7 years. My experience of work has been voluntary for Cruse Bereavement. Hope Charity working with survivors of domestic violence and sexual abuse and counselling children or their parent in a school. Along-side private practice with regular clinical supervision.
I work in a creative way introducing choice to clients if they wish to work creatively or if they prefer talking therapy.
At the initial consultation I will work with you to understand your needs and develop an individual plan that suits your needs. In order to get the most from each session, it is important to develop an open and trustworthy environment. This will help you get the most from the session and feel in control of the work being done.
