About me

In the waves of change we find our true direction

Sometimes, when everything feels like it is in flux, we have an opportunity to become who we are meant to be.
We are very rarely just one thing because we do not fit into boxes even though society often tries to squeeze us into certain ones. We exist in different roles, different space and different relationships; we are messy. This can often lead to tension within ourselves as we try and fit into who we think we 'should' be.

Lots of us spend a great deal of energy hiding the parts of ourselves that do not fit, pretending that everything is ok, when really we know that we are not being true to ourselves. This might be interests that you do not pursue, relationships or jobs you stay in even though they no longer make you happy, or even a denial of part of your identity that feels too difficult to let out.

Can you imagine how it would feel to be at peace with all of the parts of you, to craft a life where they were all valued and nourished?

Sometimes we become so caught up in all of our 'shoulds', that we don't stop think about what we would could or would like to do. While change can feel scary and difficult, it is also an opportunity to make different choices.

Counselling can provide a safe place to become curious about yourself and your life. By working with someone who is impartial and only interested in supporting you to make the right decision for you, it can be easier to tune into your own sense of self rather than other people's expectations.

By understanding and acknowledging the different aspects of our own identity and how they interact with each other and different areas of our lives, we can begin to make choices about who we want to be.

Any change can feel difficult and will cause ripples in different areas of your life, but when you feel secure in who you are and what is important to you, it becomes easier to start living the way you want to.

What to expect in your first session
While all session, like clients, are different, many people who have not had counselling before are unsure of where to start and can find a first session quite overwhelming. If that is the case for you then I will usually suggest that we spend the first session mapping out what is currently going on in your life and talking about any areas that you might like to explore in therapy. If you already have a clear idea of what you would like to address in counselling then I will be lead by you. The important part is that we will work together to find a way that works for you.

I offer online and walk and talk counselling in Crewe.

Online counselling is a great option for individuals who may struggle to attend face to face sessions. However, there are a small number of clients for whom it is not suitable. This could be due to technological issues or because they are in crisis and would benefit from more specialist support. If during our work it becomes clear that online sessions are not right for you, we will discuss other types of support that you may benefit from.

Training, qualifications & experience

My training was integrative, which means that it covered several different types of counselling (Person Centred, CBT, Systemic and Psychodynamic). Since qualifying I have completed additional training in Compassion Focused Therapy and Brief Solution Focused Therapy.

Because my training has been varied, I can tailor my way of working to suit your changing needs. Sometimes you might want a place to talk and explore whatever is coming up for you that day, but on other occasions you might want to work with a structured exercise. The most important part of how I work is that it will be led by you, we will talk about what does and does not feel helpful in all our sessions.

I work with adults (18+) for both short-term and longer-term work. While I have experience of working with a range of issues, I have a particular interest in working with people at times of change and transition, as well as those who wish to gain a better understanding of their own identities. I also have specific experience of working with people who identify as LGBTQIA+ and Neurodivergent.
