Welcome to my website.
I am a professional experienced therapist with over 25 years of experience of working with people.
Based in Derby, I offer Individual Counselling and Psychotherapy. I also offer outdoor therapy ‘Walk and Talk Therapy’
I also offer drop in therapy. I keep available a couple of appointments a day for people who want an appointment as soon as possible. This helps people to begin their journey of change, as and when, they want to. For some people counselling can feel daunting, by beginning therapy now there is no time for worry and more chance of ‘doing it’
I have a passion for helping people achieve their full potential.
Sometimes we get stuck in old behaviours and thinking patterns, this can leave us feeling stagnant and unable to manage some areas in our lives.
Therapy gives people the time and space to acknowledge this and find ways of changing their own relationship with themselves and others.
I have worked for various organisations as a therapist, and developed my private practice over 18 years ago. I have provided confidential, professional counselling and therapy to individuals, couples and various organisations.
I am a therapist who will converse with you, rather than only repeating back to you what you have said. I believe the relationship in the room is between two people, you know your ‘inside story’ and you choose what you share with me. I use more of a psycho educational approach. I also feel humour and laughter is important in the therapeutic relationship.
