Your Theraputic Journey

You remain in control of the route you choose to your wellbeing

Person Centered Therapy

I work alongside you in a very immediate and attentive way, helping you focus on the things that matter to you most.

The relationship quality is key where we have a non-judgemental, genuine and empathic space where you can share anything at all.

You will receive reflections that while sometimes challenging you will feel held and cared for throughout.

Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy 
(TF-CBT)

A structured, holistic program starting with emotional regulation skills and when safe, moving onto learning to deal with the intrusive and unwanted aspects of feelings that are associated with reliving past traumas.  

We can then move onto understanding the unhelpful thinking patterns and automatic negative thoughts that so often occur and then to how you form part of your family and community. 

Integrative Therapy

Incorporating both Person Centred & CBT, this can be particularly beneficial to those who are experiencing negative patterns of behaviour which are caused by anxiety, phobias, depression, addictions, or any other mental health issues which are
having an impact on life satisfaction.

This may include learning how the brain causes feelings or a collaborative exercise whilst in session, reframing unhelpful thoughts to more adaptive ones.

Couples Counselling

I can help couples to talk openly about their difficulties and help understand themselves, working on how to make changes to improve the relationship. Sometimes a couple will decide to separate and I can support you through this process.

You can join a session together or online at separate locations if you prefer.

Sessions are usually fortnightly to give you both time to reflect on the session. 

How can we talk?

I can offer a variety of ways we can talk, all completely up to you.

In Person

You are welcome to visit my comfortable counselling space in Kendal, Cumbria for Face to Face Counselling or Supervision.

Online

If you're more comfortable where you are, we can talk via Video over Zoom or Skype.

We can also talk over the Phone, via Text or Email.

Supervision

I can help Supervisees to reflect on all aspects of clinical work, supporting development whether in training or qualified, keeping the welfare of clients central.

Your privacy and protecting your information matters.
