Special interest areas
My specialism is working with trauma, anxiety & depression, overthinking & intrusive thoughts, low self-esteem, and emotional distress. I also have extensive experience of working with relationship difficulties, abuse, OCD, bereavement and simply feeling stuck.
You will have the option of doing short or long term sessions depending on what you aim to get out of counselling and depending on your financial situation.
When speaking with me, I will offer a non-judgmental and confidential space for you to be able to explore your thoughts, feelings, beliefs and behaviours so that you can develop a better understanding of yourself and others.
Each session takes place at the same agreed day and time each week, and sessions are 50 minutes long.
Your first session will involve an assessment of your needs and expectations and is an opportunity for us both to gain some insight into how we might work together. It is also an opportunity for you to have any questions you may have.
As a therapist, I endeavour to provide you with a safe space, to make sense of your concerns, help facilitate your own insight and perhaps explore solutions in a way which has meaning for you. As a client, it is important to remain aware that therapy is not a linear process - therapeutic interventions can be challenging and these challenges form part of the work.
I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and I abide by the ethical framework which consists of a set of common values and principles which promotes the quality of my practice. As part of my ethical practice, I receive clinical supervision to support my work.
