I am a mature counsellor/psychotherapist who loves to help people get back to living a life they love. After a career as a chemist and then a civil servant, I made the decision to train as an osteopath, helping people feel better directly and making a real change in the quality of their lives. After completing my 5-year degree I went into private practice and what I realised was that many people struggle with issues in their life, not just physical issues but emotional ones too….and often there’s a link. Patients frequently told me I was a good listener, and so I took the decision to use that natural ‘skill’ and spent 2 years training as a counsellor. So here I am…..helping people physically and emotionally to lead better lives.
How do I work?
I chose an integrative course which gave me a wide range of techniques and styles to choose from. It fitted my style of being able to tailor an approach that’s specific to your individual needs. After all, there’s no ‘one-size fits all’ solution to anything in this life. Even the same person may respond differently at different points in their life.
It also gave me the opportunity to work on both short and long-term approaches. Sometimes all you need is to ‘offload’ a bit of the pressure, or figure out what to do next, over a session or two. And sometimes you need a longer, supportive approach to explore those deep-rooted issues.
So flexibility is at the centre of what I do, it’s very much led by you with me gently guiding. This is your safe space to explore anything you want or need to, without judgement from me.
I’m also exploring an alternative setting for counselling sessions, as I know that sitting face-to-face with a stranger for a whole session can be anxiety provoking in itself. If you might be interested in ‘Walking & Talking’ why not give me a call and we can discuss how this might work for you.
