Counselling can help you gain clarity, insight and understanding and provide practical strategies to help you move forward and achieve the change you wish to see in your life. Maybe you are facing difficulties with past trauma or fear of the future and you've reached a breaking point. You might feel things have to change but don’t know where to start. Or maybe you feel stuck, or held back by limiting beliefs, negative thought patterns and overwhelmed by emotions? Whatever brings you to seek support, my aim is to meet you where you are and help you get to where you want to be.
My clinical practice is an integrative therapeutic model and combines elements of psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioural and humanistic approaches. This allows me to adapt to each of my client's needs and work to build a secure and trusting therapeutic relationship. I bring warmth, creativity and compassion to my work, with the aim of engaging my clients in the process of discovering their personal strengths, resources and potential. I believe that understanding, knowing and believing in who we are as individuals can help us to live bravely in our own skin and live the lives we want.
When we first meet we will look together at what is happening for you, how it is affecting different areas of your life, and what you might like to be different. By the end of this session you will have a clearer understanding if beginning therapy feels right for you. I understand it can be an overwhelming task to find the right therapist for you. If you are unsure, I am happy to answer any questions you may have about your specific situation and how I can be of help. Please do get in touch to arrange an initial telephone conversation with me.
I am an Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor based in Spalding, Lincolnshire and I work with both individuals and couples. I work online by video call or telephone, irrespective of your location. In-person appointments will resume depending upon government guidance and safety concerns.
My aim is to support my clients to explore and understand what may be contributing to the unhappiness, distress or psychological suffering in their lives. I offer a safe, confidential and welcoming space for self discovery, development and change.
Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.
