Are you thinking about therapy?
Finding a therapist can be daunting, there are so many to choose from with different qualifications and modalities - how do you choose? A key contributing factor to successful therapy the therapeutic relationship.
I offer a discounted initial consultation appointment (see fees) where we can discuss the issues that bring you to therapy and what to expect to from therapy. This also gives you the opportunity to establish if i am the right therapist for you. I aim to provide you with a safe, confidential, non-judgemental environment. My role is to work alongside you to help you to explore what is happening for you in the here & now; it is through this process of awareness that change occurs.
I work with a whole range of issues ranging from anxiety & depression to relationship issues, life transitions, menopause, bereavement and loss and career issues. I have a specialist interest in Bereavement and have worked clinically in a hospice setting supporting bereaved individuals.
Talking therapies work ... psychotherapy can help you work through difficult emotions & put you back in touch with yourself.
I work local to the Burnley & Pendle area. I am based at the PH7 Wellbeing Centre https://ph7wellbeing.co.uk/

Other areas of counselling I deal with
Are you training to be a psychotherapist/counsellor?
I understand that training can not only be challenging academically but financially too. Most courses have a mandatory requirement that trainee therapists must engage in their own personal therapy. I have sat in the clients chair and it is one of the most beneficial and insightful experiences of my entire training.
In order to manage the expense involved in training, I offer personal counselling to trainees at a discounted rate (see Fees)

Psychotherapy offers you the time & space to explore your thoughts & feelings in a safe, confidential & non-judgemental environment. Working with a therapist is a collaboration; I believe that the client is the expert of their own life, my role is to work alongside you to help you to explore what is happening for you in the here & now; it is through this process of awareness that change occurs.
Ultimately I believe that it is the strength of the therapeutic relationship that facilitates change. I am a huge advocate for talking therapies - therapy works!
Book a 30 minute consultation to discuss what brings you to therapy; the consultation will also help you establish whether i am the right therapist for you.
