Information & Fees

My approach:

I work online and in-person with both adults and young people, using the Person-Centred approach to counselling and psychotherapy to support emotional and psychological change. This is a non-directive approach, which focuses on the client's inner world, emotions and experiences. My practice is also informed by other techniques such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-Based and creative interventions.

Additionally, I value the importance of cycle-informed counselling, which considers how the menstrual cycle can impact mental health and the trajectory of progress and healing in therapy too. It is possible for us to give attention to this in our work together, if this feels helpful and relevant to you. 

How do I know counselling is right for me?

People all over the world seek support through therapy for many different reasons. It can feel very difficult taking the first step towards change, but finding the right counsellor can play a big part in helping your journey to feel more comfortable, understood and supported. No matter what you are struggling with in this moment, it's important to know that you are not alone and that there are many options for support, no matter the challenge.

Counselling can help with many things, such as:

​​

  • Anxiety​

  • Bereavement

  • Body Dysmorphic Disorder

  • Bullying

  • Disabilities

  • Discrimination

  • Dementia

  • Depression

  • Eating Disorders

  • Family troubles

  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

  • Loneliness

  • Low confidence or self-esteem

  • Pregnancy and birth

  • Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD)

  • Relationship troubles

  • Seasonal Affect Disorder (SAD)

  • Self-harm

  • Separation and divorce

  • Sexuality

  • Spirituality

  • Stress

  • Suicidal thoughts

  • Trauma

  • And many more challenges

 

Many people also choose counselling as a space for self-exploration, to gain a better understanding of themselves or life circumstances, or simply as a space to work things through.
