About Me

Hello, I’m Heidi, an approachable and down-to-earth therapist, aiming to offer you a confidential, calm, open-minded and non-judgmental space for you to express and explore any current difficulties, hurt or worries in your life. My counselling approach is integrative, mainly drawing on person-centred, psychodynamic concepts and attachment theory, though I also work creatively and intuitively within the moment.

 

I understand that life is complex and sometimes you might need some extra support, especially if you're feeling sad, fearful or overwhelmed just trying to get through another day. You may have been through a painful experience, or perhaps you've lost a sense of who you are, where you belong, what you want in life. I offer a confidential place for you to talk about whatever is most important to you, where you can be properly heard and seen without being judged, or told what to do.

 

My background in the creative industries has meant I’ve been fortunate to meet and work with people from a variety of cultural, religious and social backgrounds. This has given me understanding and sensitivity to people’s diverse life experiences and how these may impact upon their lives. 

 

We’ll take a journey that is unique to you. We’ll start from your ‘here and now’ feelings, experiences and relationships, and if it feels right for you, we can work together to discover connections to your past and to consider how those experiences might be affecting your present life. I’m committed to supporting and encouraging you to gain new insight and understanding of your self, with the intention of helping you feel more empowered or less ‘stuck’, feel better able to move forward more positively and make lasting changes in your life.

 

We can work together for a shorter period of weeks or months or should you wish to, I can see you for longer-term work.
