You may be seeking therapy because you are going through a difficult time, feeling confused, or just struggling to make sense of things. My aim is to provide you with a confidential, non-judgemental, and authentic space, helping you to gain a better understanding why you sometimes feel, think or behave the way you do.
I understand that taking these first steps to seek help can take a lot of courage, and finding the right therapist to support you on your journey can feel daunting. As research suggests, the most important factor in benefiting from therapy is based on the quality of the relationship between client and therapist. Drawing on my previous background as a professional photographer, I try to make someone feel at ease through my warmth, genuineness and underlying desire to listen and to understand. This can lead to a felt sense of trust that ultimately forms the bedrock of a successful therapeutic relationship.
I believe that every individual is unique, therefore therapy needs to be tailored to the individual. Trained in Integrative Counselling, I use a variety of modalities and theories to creatively and collaboratively work towards a way that can have most meaning for you. With this awareness and insight you can begin to make some positive changes in your life based on an internal sense of empowerment and personal growth.
I am a registered member of the BACP, who is experienced working with a range of experiences and concerns such as trauma, addiction, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, self-esteem, sexual abuse, and individuals impacted by domestic violence.
Alongside my private practice I also work for a Social Justice Charity working with clients from a diverse demographic facing a multitude of difficulties. I am also currently undergoing a Post Graduate Diploma in PTSD and Trauma which is proving fundamental in keeping me abreast with the latest research findings in my trauma informed work.
I offer in-person and online, both long and short-term therapy.
My in-person fees are £70-£85 / online £50-£60
I offer concessions dependent upon current availability.
Please feel free to contact me so that I can answer any questions or queries you may have.
