Welcome to My Website

There are times when we feel lost, stuck, alone, hurt, sad, afraid, frustrated or angry. At such times, through engaging in therapy, you can be heard and understood and have space to work with whatever you are facing. MY Therapy provides a safe space to allow healing of pain and distress, explore possibilities, achieve clarity and enhance emotional and physical well-being.

I work in a compassionate, caring, non-judgmental, ethical and professional way.

Frequently Asked Questions

I know I need to talk to someone but do I really need therapy?

There are times in our lives when we can feel overwhelmed, stuck, lost, alone, hurt, frustrated, stressed, anxious or depressed. This is when seeking therapy to talk issues through, gain clarity and understanding, be heard and supported, really makes a difference and can help you resolve issues and make the changes you need to.

What can I expect from therapy?

After your initial session, I will discuss with you my understanding of the problems and issues. We will agree a therapy plan; with clear objectives and a view of the possible outcomes of therapy. If you have any questions about any aspect of your therapy, please ask at any point and you will be answered fully. If you could benefit from any treatment that I do not provide, I have an ethical obligation, and am happy to signpost you to those treatments and where possible.

What about confidentiality?

I ensure that all sessions are treated confidentially, and all reasonable steps are taken to protect your privacy. All information disclosed within sessions and the written records relating to those sessions are confidential and may not be revealed to anyone without your permission, except where disclosure is required by law. An example where a therapist is required to act responsibly and disclose client information to a third party is where there is reasonable suspicion of child, dependent or elder abuse or neglect or where a client presents a danger to self, others or property. In such circumstances no action would be taken ,whenever possible, without you being informed.

As a professional practitioner, and for your protection, I adhere to the Code of Conduct, Ethics and Guidelines of Good Practice of the British Psychological Society. I am also regulated by the Health Care Professions Council.

What is a Chartered Counselling Psychologist?

A Chartered Counselling Psychologist is registered with the British Psychological Society and regulated by the Health Care Professions Council (My registration number is PYL 22722).

They work collaboratively with clients to provide effective treatment and help them develop understanding and empowerment to enable positive life changes to be made.
