THERAPY FOR ADULTS Please scroll down for Therapy for Children
I offer a supportive space to explore your thoughts and feelings, to deepen understanding of the impact of your life experiences and your emotional needs. This understanding can help you to make decisions about things you may wish to change.
Providing you with support
This begins with developing trust so that you feel comfortable enough to open up & talk about what you have been/are experiencing.
I offer you a calm safe space, a time to feel really listened to, understood and accepted
I work in a way that is respectful and sensitive.
I use my knowledge and experience to assess your individual needs. Whatever has brought you to consider therapy, I can help you develop ways to manage and process feelings, gain insight and live a fulfilling life. I offer the choice of both talk therapy and to work creatively. Creative therapy includes art therapy, but can also include working with dreams or visualisation, writing or music. If this appeals to you or you are curious to learn more, please take a look at my website.
My therapy room provides you with a calm space away from the pressures of everyday life.
A free Initial Session
I offer a 30 minute initial session. I do not charge for this, as it is an opportunity for you to meet me in person and see how we might work together.
THERAPY FOR CHILDREN
You may be concerned that there has been a noticeable change in your child's mood, behaviour or both.
I seek to develop a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship with a child.
I offer child-centered play and art therapy. My therapy room is equipped with a range of toys, objects and art materials. Child-centered therapy involves being alongside a child whilst they play or create artwork. The child chooses and leads the activity and how much they wish me to be involved
