My Approach

The therapy room

In my practice, I'm dedicated to fostering an environment that's not only reassuring and confidential but also wholly non-judgmental. Here, every individual is genuinely welcomed, assured of a space where they can feel at ease, listened to, and truly understood. My expertise lies in aiding clients navigate through anxiety, grief, trauma, and feelings of overwhelm. I employ a diverse toolkit in my approach, integrating counselling techniques with mindfulness practices and Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) to address each client's unique needs.

Creating a Comforting Space

I invite my clients into a therapeutic environment located in my Malvern home, which is carefully arranged to be as comfortable and welcoming as possible—far from the starkness often associated with clinical settings. This space is designed to provide a safe haven that feels both secure and homely. While I primarily cater to adults, I can also work with children and young people.   I also offer the flexibility of phone or remote sessions.

The Foundation of Our Journey

At the heart of effective counselling lies the profound connection and relationship cultivated between you and me, your counsellor. It's crucial to partner with someone with whom you feel a genuine rapport—someone who not only understands you deeply but also with whom you can share openly. The counselling journey may present its challenges, but having a supportive, non-judgmental ally by your side can make all the difference.

My personal approach - the 'me-ness' of my practice

As someone who is highly sensitive and has navigated personal traumas in my past, I approach each session with immense care, empathy, compassion and authenticity. My methodology is warm, attentive, and insightful, aiming to provide a tailored experience that addresses your specific circumstances. My practice is enriched by the gentle presence of my little dogs, whose calming presence often aids the therapeutic process. Should their presence not be comfortable for you, accommodations can be made and they will be kept in the main part of the house.

Shauna Niequist once said, "What I can offer is myself, wholehearted and present, to walk with people through fear and mess." This sentiment really resonates with my practice philosophy.

Expertise and Qualifications

My areas of expertise include managing anxiety, stress, and overwhelm; navigating through various forms of loss and grief; resolving relationship and conflict issues; addressing bullying and its long-term effects; and supporting clients through significant life transitions and changes. I also  specialize in working with highly sensitive individuals and those who have faced judgment and discrimination or who feel they have never quite 'fitted' what others want from them.

I'm in the final stages of earning a Level 4 Diploma in Counselling after four years of rigorous study, poised to qualify as an Integrative Counsellor in Summer 2024. I currently hold a Level 3 Certificate in Counselling, a level 2 in Bereavement and Grief and a Level 4 in Mindfulness teaching.
