About me

In an ideal world, we would have someone to talk to within our family or support network, but sometimes we don't feel that we can because we don't want to hurt their feelings or face their reactions.  Counselling fills this gap and is a way to express how you really think and feel in a respectful, warm, safe and non-judgemental environment, with someone who is not emotionally involved.

I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor which means that I use different models of counselling, inter-twining them and tailoring them to fit your needs.  This gives us the opportunity to explore how life is for you, how you feel about it and how you react during certain situations, all with the aim of finding solutions that work for you.

I continue to work with clients over the age of 16, from various backgrounds with a plethora of issues, which include:

Anxiety                        Stress                                   Bereavement               
Depression                  Health related issues           Low Self confidence
Trauma                        Work related issues             Low Self esteem
Relationship issues     General counselling             Anger management

My commitment to you involves offering you a safe, warm, empathic, non-judgemental, impartial and confidential environment; helping you try and make sense of why you feel the way that you do and developing different options.

I offer a free half hour initial consultation, without obligation, giving us the opportunity to meet and discuss how counselling may help. If you feel, for whatever reason, that you are unable to meet face to face then I also offer counselling via the telephone and by email. 


To ensure that I work within your best interests at all times and working to a code of ethics, I am a full member of a governing body called the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists).   I also attend regular training days keeping my skills and knowledge up-to-date so that I can help you in the best way I can.


I also supervise other professionals to promote and encourage good practice, when working with their client work.  I help and encourage them to develop professionally and personally, by adhering to their agency policies and procedures, as well as a code of ethics which promotes good practice.  Although I am an Integrative Counsellor, I often work with Supervisees who work with different models and together we help establish a learning environment of support and guidance, enabling discussions to help facilitate their clients' needs, whilst they themselves remain safe.
