About me

I provide a safe, professional, friendly and confidential service to individuals, couples and families. Having trained separately in counselling and psychology, I tailor the service I provide to suit the specific needs of each individual client (couple or family).
Working primarily on a short-term therapy basis (typically between six and eighteen sessions) and long-term therapy when appropriate, I help individuals and couples over the age of sixteen with many different issues and therapeutic aims. As well as my work in private practice, I have also fulfilled other counselling/therapy roles within the NHS, Occupational, Charity and Public sectors.
I practice from a Person-centred perspective and use a combination of approaches such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Transactional Analysis (TA), in order to help people with a broad range of therapeutic needs. I respect that everyones problems are very complex and unique. Therefore I believe that a flexible approach has the potential to meet a clients particular needs at a given time during the counselling process.
