Everyone has times in life when their mental health is particularly challenging and they may be facing emotional or psychological distress. I am a professional, approachable UKCP registered psychotherapist working in private practice in Malvern. I support adults by holding a safe, confidential, non-judgemental space so you can become more aware of the impact of past life experiences, how those events still influence how you are in the world today and explore your thoughts and feelings around options for making changes in the future.
I offer a free initial 30 minute session for you to briefly explain what has brought you to therapy and your hopes for it and for me to explain how therapy works. This gives both the opportunity to find out a bit more about each other and decide if we feel we could work together.
Therapy can be either short-term or long-term (with regular reviews) and either in person or on-line. If meeting in person we can use one of two comfortable, confidential rooms in the gardens of my house. A cloakroom is available. As I live on the outskirts of Malvern, meeting outside in nature is also possible. If meeting on-line we can use either Zoom or MS-Teams. Whether meeting in person or on-line, normally we would meet at the same time each week, although this can be varied if necessary. There is free parking on-site and Malvern Link train station 1.2 miles away.
Welcome and thank you for taking the time to read my profile.
I come originally from a technical background, first working in IT in financial services and central government and later moving into business analysis, project management and consultancy. Throughout, I received feedback that colleagues found me comfortable to talk to about work or personal issues. Hence I decided to pursue further training – firstly as a coach and later, seeking greater relational depth to support clients with longer established, deeper issues, as a Gestalt psychotherapist.
