UKCP Accredited Psychotherapist

Hello, I’m Simone, a UKCP Accredited Psychotherapist and Counsellor - passionate about delivering safe and effective therapy which improves psychological health and builds resilience. 

I’ve been seeing clients in private practice since 2009, and since 2006 have worked across many different settings including an NHS Adult Community Mental Health Team and Specialist Counselling Service.

I provide a friendly and professional counselling and psychotherapy service for anyone aged 18 and over experiencing psychological distress or issues that may feel too sensitive, difficult, or trivial to discuss with family, friends, or colleagues.

Problems I regularly help people with include anxiety; boundary issues; childhood trauma; codependency; communication; depression; eating issues; emotional regulation; low self-esteem; perfectionism; PTSD; relationship difficulties; and stress.

About Counselling in Shropshire

Therapeutic Style

My therapeutic style is integrative, and I adapt my approach depending on the best fit for your own preferences, along with the nature and duration of the problems you’re wanting to address - and the impact they’re having on you, your relationships and your life.

Knowing that choosing a therapist can feel like a minefield, I offer a free, no-obligation, 20-minute initial consultation. This gives you the opportunity to learn more about my approach, whether I have the expertise you need, and most importantly - whether I’d be a good match for you.  The About Me page provides details of my experience and qualifications to help you make your choice.

Counselling & Psychotherapy

Coming into therapy does not always mean you having a specific problem, sometimes having a space to reflect on your life with someone professionally trained to listen and respond to you in a particular way can be highly beneficial.

My time working with Simone has been life changing. She strikes the right balance between compassion and challenge and has enabled me to see situations from a different perspective. Her knowledge and her ability to communicate are outstanding – she has led me to a clearer understanding of myself and my experience and the impact has been profound. I cannot recommend Simone highly enough and I will forever be grateful.

Simone's warm presence and assured expertise provided instant trust during my first session. It was clear she saw my struggles as valid and had a genuine interest in helping solve them. I can confidently say that Simone showed me a different way to look at things, providing me with the skills and courage where I now feel confident to tackle the hurdles life throws our way.

Finding the courage to have therapy took a long time, but I wish I'd found Simone sooner. From my first session, she made me feel safe, validated, and understood without judgment. We've unpicked a lot, challenged deeply ingrained thought processes which I'd always taken to be inevitable and unchangeable, and helped me to see and know that I have control over my life. We also worked on practical tools to manage anxiety, gain clarity in the moment and in interactions with other people, which has transformed my mental health from deep within. If you are already thinking therapy might help, speak to Simone.
