I am a humanistic (Gestalt) counsellor providing one-to-one counselling.
I am a qualified and experienced therapist offering confidential and professional service to individual and couples. I believe an overall aim of counselling is to provide people with space to talk and reflect on issues in their life that they feel important, and also ones that are causing distress. I see my role as a therapist to build trusting and productive working relationship with people while providing a safe environment where they can achieve further awareness, alongside exploring ways in which they can cope and manage better. I work with the belief that you know how to support yourself and can solve your own problems, but sometimes you may get stuck in an unhelpful pattern and need someone else to help you to get out of it. I offer long term and short term therapy and personal development.
I specialise in couple-counselling and family counselling.
I work with clear ethical boundaries and I am a Registered member of British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy ( BACP).
My aim is to ensure that counselling is undertaken with the context of respect and acceptance.

For the first session I charge £35.00 to give us the opportunity to meet, talk and see if we want to work together. After that the charge is £40.00 per session (50 minutes) for individual counsellling. For couple counselling it is £50.00.
I have allocated limited subsidised sessions available for low-paid or unwaged clients - these do tend to fill up quickly.
I am a supportive person that will accompany you on your journey, no matter how long it is. I have a 'holistic' approach to working. This includes observing body language and what is not said, as well as working in here- and- now to raise awareness and increase your choices.
