I work with adults and currently spend one day a week at a charity, counselling survivors of sexual abuse. My background as a solicitor also helps me to support a large number of clients suffering with executive stress.
In my private practice, I offer one-to-one counselling, either on a long-term or short-term basis. I provide a safe and welcoming environment to support you. The relationship between us, as therapist and client, is hugely important and after a few sessions together we can review whether you feel I am the right therapist for you. As an Integrative therapist, I draw on a wide range of theories, including recent developments in neurobiology, which help us to understand the relationship between mind, body and our sense of safety and emotional wellbeing. Many clients benefit from developing their ability to notice what is going on in their body and being curious about this. If you feel comfortable, as well as talking, our sessions might include breathing practices, drawing and other creative ways of working that you are willing to experiment with. However, this will always be your choice.
I believe that therapy can be a useful support for any problem. My work includes counselling in the following areas:
Stress, anxiety and depression
Work-related problems, particularly executive stress
Ill health and terminal diagnosis counselling
Sexual abuse / Domestic abuse
Sex, sexuality and gender identity
Life change and crisis
Low confidence and low self-esteem
