I am a full time, self employed, Counsellor & Psychotherapist with over 14 years psychotherapeutic experience offering: Psychodynamic, Jungian, CBT, Person Centred, Solution Focused and Spiritual Counselling, Relationship Couples Counselling and Psychotherapy for adults and young adults (21+) from Knighton Fields Road East, Leicester. I offer appointments from: Monday to Friday and Saturday morning either face to face or online.
I also offer reduced fees for people on a limited income and a free of charge telephone consultation.
Most of us experience times in our lives when we feel lost, worried or anxious. This might be because of specific difficulties such as: Anxiety, depression, night terrors, bad dreams, bereavement, low self esteem and confidence. It could also be a general sense of feeling different and not fitting in. Or feeling isolated and lonely and not understanding why. I have supported people with many issues for a large charity, a local University and in private practice for many years.
For counselling I use: CBT, Person Centred Therapy, Relationship Therapy and Solution Focused techniques. For open ended Psychotherapy, I use Psychodynamic and Jungian modalities, which explore at a deeper level; childhood memories, dreams, trauma, relationship attachment problems and developmental issues. I also have an interest in the Personality Adaptation (Disorder) spectrum, I also work with Spirituality within the therapeutic space.
Your childhood experiences, dreams, memories and current feelings in the ‘here and now’ are uniquely personal. Talking to an experienced, accredited therapist, offers you the opportunity to explore previously unresolved feelings, and behaviours that might have made you feel lost, confused and even ‘held you back’ for many years. Exploring your inner world can be life changing and extremely empowering.
I also work with couples (21+) regardless of sexuality and gender identity) who find it difficult to connect and maintain long term, intimate loving relationships. You might after a certain period of time, find yourself withdrawing from your partner, or you might be someone who finds it painful and anxiety provoking to be apart from them, relationship counselling can help. Whether you find existing or new relationships difficult, or you feel insecure, lost, lonely, or have experienced Infidelity and domestic violence, please feel free to contact me for an initial free of charge telephone consultation to see how I can help.
I offer a free of charge telephone consultation to ensure you are comfortable speaking to me before booking a consultation session.
So whether you wish to book an appointment for one session, or you decide to explore your needs, thoughts and feelings further, I look forward to speaking with you. I hope the following gives you an overview of the areas I am competent to work with:
Short term Counselling
Open ended Psychotherapy
Anxiety and panic attacks
Night terrors, Dreams
Low self esteem
Childhood abuse and trauma
Personality Adaptation (Disorder)
