This radiant sunflower symbolises for me the enormous potential within each one of us.
Lovingly rescued from a bag of bird seed, clumsily planted by a child, dug up several times by a dog and trampled by a toddler yet somehow, from deep within it found the strength to keep growing and reach it’s beautiful potential.
Person centred therapists refer to this as Actualising tendency – a desire present in all living things that pushes the organism towards growth.
I believe you too can push past the things in your life that seek to hold you back and be empowered to grow into the person you were meant to be.
There Is Always Hope
I use a person centred approach to help create a safe, empathic and non-judgemental environment where clients feel free to explore difficult thoughts and feelings in order to make sense of them and move forward in a positive way. My skills and experience count for nothing unless we can develop a real therapeutic relationship of trust. This is fundamental to our work together.
I offer an initial free 30 minute session so that clients can decide if they feel comfortable working with me
Thereafter, sessions are £40 for 60 minutes (Face to face/online/telephone)
I continue to offer online/telephone therapy and I am now also resuming face to face sessions in line with government guidance re Covid-19.
I offer a concessionary rate of £25 in certain circumstances (please ask for details) Brief therapy (6-12 sessions) and longer term therapy are available, depending on client need and preference.
I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (MBACP) and work within their ethical framework. I receive regular supervision to ensure that I am working both ethically and in my clients best interests. My register number is 382986.
