About me

I am an Integrative Counsellor, offering Gestalt, person-centred and cognitive behavioural therapies. I also offer mindfulness, visualisation and object work. An ‘integrative approach’ means being able to tailor sessions to the needs of each client. One size does not fit all.

I can offer therapy face-to-face, via skype or by telephone. My preference would be to meet face-to-face as I feel this is most beneficial to you, the client.                             

I have found counselling to be the most amazing path of self-discovery, as a client and practitioner. Both sides of this dynamic have been transformational. To be in a room with a professional who was there just for me, to listen without judgement or preconceived ideas, was life-changing.

  • Abortion

  • Affairs
