Counselling and therapy in Caverham and Reading area
Welcome! Thank you for visiting my website.
If you have found your way here, you may be feeling that you are not in control of some aspects of your life right now and you are hoping counselling will help you make sense of the feelings and experiences that are troubling you.
Beginning your counselling journey can be a daunting prospect so I hope the information I have provided is helpful to you.
I am a qualified counselling therapist offering a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment for you to talk about what is troubling you. I work with individuals on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, meeting once a week, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.
Counselling can help you better understand yourself and how you think which, ultimately, will help you to develop a clearer understanding of your problems.
I work at your pace, so you are always in control of what you disclose and when. Counselling is not a quick fix, and as your counsellor I can't tell you what to do but I will support you as you explore the best solutions for yourself.
The counselling process requires a strong relationship between client and counsellor so it is important you feel comfortable working with me and therefore, I offer new clients a free 15-minute telephone consultation so we can start getting to know one another and see if we are a good fit before committing to anything. You are welcome to ask any questions you may have about the counselling process.
I have experience across a wide range of issues including:
I have worked with survivors of sexual violence for over two years, supporting them to manage trauma symptoms such as nightmares and flashbacks as well as negative feelings and thoughts such as shame, guilt and a sense of worthlessness.
My practice is in Caversham, near Reading town centre and easily accessible from Henley, Wokingham, Newbury, Basingstoke and surrounding areas. There is free parking nearby and a good bus service. I am also in easy walking distance from the train station.
Whether it is personal or professional, or addressing and resolving feelings of loss and distress or mental health issues such as anxiety or depression, I can help find the right solution for you.
