About me

I am a qualified UKCP registered psychotherapist and counsellor. I work with people who come with a range of emotional issues who are finding that how they are feeling is impacting on their lives.

Counselling is an opportunity to be listened to and to be heard, in a way that helps us to make sense of our feelings, thoughts and behaviours .

I work in a way that meets the unique needs of each person, helping them to find their own way forward and to make positive changes in their lives.

Everyone is unique and not everyones needs are the same, as an integrative psychotherapist/counsellor, my approach incorporates different theories and models, giving me the flexibility to meet those complex and diverse needs.

I have undertaken extensive training to understand, what makes us who we are, how we think and feel about ourselves and the impact this has on how we relate to others. Where our anxieties and fears come from and how these can be worked through to reduce the impact these may have on our lives.

Learning, understanding and healing is also unique to everyone and the process may take longer for some than others, I work short term with current problems, working through your reactions to a distressing or stressful event or longer term working towards a deeper understanding of yourself, why you feel the way you do, what you feel about others and the things that happen to you.
