About me

I have been working as a fully accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists since 2002. I work mainly with individuals and couples. I am also a Life Coach and a Creativity Coach, and I run social anxiety and confidence building programmes for individuals and organisations. In 2004 I founded Greenlight Healing and Personal Development Consultancy. Please see website for further details.

I employ an Integrative and Holistic approach to Counselling and Psychotherapy – aiming to match the therapy to the client rather than the client to the therapy. My training and experience is wide ranging, and I draw on therapies that are best suited to the individual client – or couple – in question. The various approaches I use include Psychodynamic, Transpersonal, Existential, Person Centred, and Cognitive Behavioural (CBT). Where appropriate, I may also draw on Addiction Management, Stress Management or Neuro-Linguistic techniques.

Through identifying and tackling destructive life patterns, spiritual deadlocks, negative behaviours and thinking I aim to open up new life style choices, improve relationships and increase confidence, personal growth and fulfilment.
