Hello and a warm welcome to my website. A wide variety of reasons lead people to therapy; we are all unique and life experiences can affect us very differently. What some people seem to cope with well may leave others struggling. There is no reason too big or too small to seek the help of a counsellor.
I am a compassionate and experienced counsellor, psychotherapist, supervisor and lecturer in counselling. Feeling heard and having a safe place to explore our life story lies at the heart of good counselling practice. However, sometimes it is hard to speak of the difficult and distressing events in our lives. I am also passionate about counselling and psychotherapy that involves more than words alone and offer somatic, creative and trauma informed interventions that consider thoughts, emotions, and physiological aspects of the psyche as intrinsically connected.
Maybe you have had counselling before and are looking for something deeper; maybe you are feeling a bit stuck or have experienced distress or traumatic events that are hard to verbalise. Working together according to your needs and preferences we can adopt an approach to therapy that feels suited to you.
Research shows that it is the quality of the therapeutic relationship that predicts good outcomes in therapy, rather than the type of approach, therefore it's important that you feel comfortable with the therapist that you choose. Our first session will be an introductory assessment with no obligation to continue unless you wish to and my approach feels welcome to you.
