About me

Hi,

Life can be a massive struggle, causing havoc and destruction, constantly putting on a 'brave face' is exhausting and relentless. I offer an opportunity for you to allow me to be with you on this journey, to uncover and work from where you are to where you want to get to.

I have a genuine belief in the benefits gained in connecting with your authentic self, giving freedom to choose when or if you need to wear a mask and hide your real self.

As an experienced and professional Counsellor/Psychotherapist, I offer you a respectful, non judgemental and safe environment for us to explore your worries and fears. We can learn what works for you. I will facilitate your ability to gain understanding of yourself, your behaviours and reactions, growing self awareness and developing a greater sense of your identity leading to a rise in confidence and self esteem.

My approach is honest and genuine, working at your pace, providing a confidential safe therapeutic space.  I work from a peaceful therapy room with a view from the window across an area of green land and trees.

I am an Accredited member of the BACP and work alongside their Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions.

I offer long or short term counselling, weekly or two weekly, am experienced in a wide range of issues:  all types of trauma, dissociative identity disorder, alters, depression; post natal depression; anxiety; panic, suicidal ideation, self harm; sexual abuse; physical and emotional abuse; relationship breakdown, low self esteem, bereavement, stress.

My style of counselling is Integrative which combines theoretical models, Person Centred, Psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and some aspects of Transactional Analysis. I may also work creatively using art, mind-maps, stones and other objects etc, if this is something you and I decide is right for you.

Clinical Supervision - I hold a Diploma in Clinical Supervisor to counsellors/psychotherapists. I work in line with the BACP Ethical Framework and have a strong ethical framework which underpins the safety of clients and ourselves. Fortnightly or monthly supervision available. Please call or email any enquiries.
