About me

We all have times in our lives when we're struggling with difficult feelings. Perhaps an unexpected event has happened in your life that's led you to feel overwhelmed and unable to cope. Or, a longer-term issue that was bearable now makes you feel stuck or lost. You could simply have the niggling sense that you're "not quite yourself" and would like to find out why that might be in order to make a change. We always hope that talking to friends and family about our feelings will help, and thankfully, sometimes it does. But if you feel that's not quite enough or that's not possible, then you may wish to consider counselling.

How I work

I listen with warmth and care and without judgement. I offer a welcoming space to talk in confidence about what is troubling you. I can help you to express, explore and understand unwanted feelings. It's not always easy to process what's going on inside, and feelings such as anger, loneliness, sadness, anxiety or shame are challenging to be with. Because of this, I aim to build a trusting therapeutic relationship with clients, so that you feel safe and supported as we journey through what it is that's bought you to therapy. Our work together can help you manage your feelings better as you find a way forward that feels meaningful, with greater self-understanding and fulfilment.

I work with clients in the short-term (6-20 sessions) or for a longer period of time, dependant on their needs.

What to expect

After speaking on the phone, we can agree a time to meet for an initial assessment. The aim of this first session is for us to meet in person, to get a sense of each other and for you to see whether you'd like to work with me as your counsellor. I'll have the chance to understand more about what's going on for you at the moment, to consider how I can help and you'll have the opportunity to ask any questions. If we agree to continue together, counselling sessions are at the same time, same place, each week for 50 minutes.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a professionally qualified Integrative Counsellor, registered with both the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and the National Counselling Society (MNCS Accred). I have a Post-Graduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling from the Minster Centre, a leading counselling and psychotherapy training institute (validated by Middlesex University). I hold a BA (Hons, 1st Class) in Communications from Cardiff University.

I am qualified in a range of therapeutic approaches and work in a way that is guided by my clients' experiences and needs. My training has included Psychodynamic, Humanistic and Person-Centred Psychotherapy, Body Psychotherapy and Relational Psychotherapy.

I am experienced at working with a range of emotional issues and mental health problems. I have also had additional specialised training in death and bereavement, self-harm and suicide, sexuality, sexual diversity, domestic abuse, eating disorders and trauma.

In addition to private practice, I have worked as a counsellor for two branches of MIND, a hospital bereavement service, a low-cost therapy service and a women’s healthcare charity (as part of NHS IAPT). Over the years, I have supported individuals with anxiety, depression, sex and relationship problems, and through times of loss and major life changes. I am particularly interested in the impact of parenthood and identity issues.

I am passionate about making mental health stigma a thing of the past. Before becoming a therapist, I was a befriender for Samaritans.

Fees

Reaching out for help is always the first step, and I know considering therapy can be daunting. You can start by sending me an email or we can speak on the phone, to talk a little about what's bringing you to counselling. Then if you'd like to meet for a first session, we can discuss how we might work together and how counselling may benefit you.

My fee is £70 per session. I have a limited number of slots at the concessionary rate of £55 for students or for clients on lower incomes.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
