How I work

My Counselling practice offers a safe and empathetic space for you to navigate life’s challenges and find inner strength. Whether you’re grappling with anxiety, relationship issues, or simply seeking personal growth, my practice is here to support you. With expertise and a compassionate approach, I seek to help clients explore their thoughts and emotions, fostering self-awareness and resilience. If you’re looking to embark on the process of self-exploration, I am here to provide a safe and respectful environment for this journey.

Creative Counselling

In counselling, the use of creative tools can be a transformative and therapeutic approach. Creativity allows individuals to express their thoughts, emotions, and experiences in unique ways that may be difficult to convey through traditional verbal communication alone.

Through art, music, writing, or other creative mediums, clients can explore their inner worlds, process complex feelings such as anxiety and stress, and gain insights into their concerns.

Creative tools provide a non-judgmental space for self-expression, encouraging clients to tap into their imagination and uncover hidden aspects of themselves.

Whether it’s painting to externalise emotions, writing to reflect on personal narratives, or using music to connect with buried feelings, these tools empower clients to engage with their healing journey in a more profound and holistic manner.

In the process, clients often discover newfound perspectives, increased self-awareness, and the ability to develop coping strategies and solutions that may not have emerged through traditional talk therapy alone. The integration of creative tools into counselling can be a powerful and enriching experience, promoting personal growth, healing, and self-discovery.

One-At-A-Time session.

One-At-A-Time therapy (OAATT) is solution focused and revolves around the counsellor aiding the client in problem solving.

Whilst OAATT is not suitable for deep diving into mental health issues such as depression and anxiety due to its time constraints, it can fill a space if clients are on a waiting list for NHS or charity counselling.

OAATT can be great if you have an event coming up that may be irritating those symptoms of underlying mental health issues. Anxiety may be getting in the way of applying for that dream job. Depression may be stopping you from attending that wedding. Work stresses may be building up and causing tension at home. With OAATT, I work with clients to put a plan of action together, tailored specifically to their needs.

One-At-A-Time therapy sessions are structured and last for 90 minutes with check-ins booked as required.
