About me


I am Qualified, Therapeutic Counsellor and Registered member of the BACP.  I have worked with both Men and Women, young and old in my Private Practice.   I bring experiences from working in a Charitable Organisation offering Holistic Therapies.   I gained a wide experience of working with Staff in NHS, Counselling Service, offering support to staff within the NHS/Care Providers. With a wide range of issues from Work/Personal Related issue to Anxiety/Depression and grief.

What to expect in your first session

First steps can be daunting!    Feel free to e-mail me as the first step in introducing your needs with any clarity or concerns you may have about Counselling.   I welcome any questions about what difficulties you are experiencing at the moment.  It will be confidential and treated with respect and understanding.  I know how difficult it is to make the first steps to getting help.  It takes courage, bravery even when that is not felt. Everyone deserves the right to fulfil their full potential in life and together we can go on a journey of your self-discovery that informs change.

I can support you in a Therapeutic, Safe, Confidential environment in which you can explore and share your feelings at a pace that suits you. Building a therapeutic relationship is important. As an Integrative Counsellor I draw upon a wide range of different approaches to suit your individual needs.   My person-centred approach sees you as a ‘Whole Person’.  Mind/Body/Spirit.   I believe that every individual can find their own answers within themselves. I can support you on your journey of self –discovery.

How Counselling can help

Relationship family & Work Issues   - Bullying -   Trauma   -   Abuse - Anxiety - Depression - Grief & Loss - Stress  
to name a few

I offer,

  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy focusing on your mind aspect of self. Negative or faulty thinking patterns.
  • Solution-focused Therapy  -  work/life related stresses
  • Gestalt Therapy  -  helping to immobilize and express stuck emotional feelings

A combination of all therapies can be used depending on your individual needs.  Coping strategies to help with Anxiety/Stress and Depression, self-esteem are a few difficulties that may be affecting your every-day life.

Together, I can support you through your ‘Journey of Discovery’ whether it is for short term therapy, focusing on a particular need.  Or longer term therapy, focusing on the underlying issues, you may have experienced, i.e. Trauma, relationship/family issues or want to work on understanding your self better.

  I provide a confidential environment and offer the space in which you can explore and try to understand, make sense of, your own difficulties. Together we can find new coping strategies that helps you to find a way forward to cope with every day life experiences.
