Are you feeling low, anxious, overwhelmed, lost or stuck? I can help you manage distressing emotions and negative thoughts. Sometimes these feelings can feel too much to cope with on your own. I will help you discover what is going on and how to improve things. I am a friendly, empathetic, professional and effective counsellor. I can assist you to understand the source of your distress and together we can identify strategies to improve your well-being. I know that finding a counsellor can be daunting. I want to reassure you that I appreciate this and I will do all I can, to make it feel less so. Please do contact me to find out more.
Training, qualifications & experience
I use an integrative approach, which means that I draw from a number of counselling models, including psychodynamic, attachment based, humanistic and cognitive behavioural therapy. I tailor my approach to your needs and I offer both short and longer term work.
I have undertaken a very comprehensive training and qualified with a Counselling Diploma from the Minster Centre in London. The Minster Centre is a highly respected college training integrative counsellors. I have counselled clients for three years, and have successfully worked with them on issues such as depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, bereavement, relationship difficulties, trauma, addiction, work problems, sexuality and identity, culture, and discrimination. I also have an interest in parenting issues.
Previously I have worked as a senior manager in large organisations, and have a good understanding of workplace issues that can have a negative effect, such as work/life balance, stress, bullying, restructures and redundancies.
