About me

I offer a secure and welcoming space where counselling can take place with confidence and respect. The integration of my life experience, varied training and experience as a counsellor, I believe, enables this to happen.
I am a BACP accredited counsellor, working Integratively, from a Psychodynamic perspective. I am also a Qualified Supervisor in working with individuals and groups, working privately and in several agencies. I have a diploma in working with adolescents which benefits my work both with young people themselves and adults with unresolved issues from their own adolescence. In addition to my private practice I work in several young peoples agencies where I have gained much experience of working with victims of sexual and physical abuse, depression and low self esteem, loss and bereavement. My further training as an Ecopsychologist gives me a wider understanding of stress and depression related to life in present times.
