About me

I am a BACP registered and accredited Counsellor with over 12 years experience of working with adults young people and their families.

My core training is Psychodynamic but I use an integrated approach that brings together different elements of specific theories helping to provide greater flexibility when working with different presenting issues.

I offer a safe containing space in which we can work together to explore the difficulties being faced by you.By talking about your feelings and thoughts you will begin to gain a better understanding of what is happening in your life.

The counselling relationship helps you to become aware of the changes that can be achieved in your life and develop strategies to better manage those that can't be changed.The relationship that can be developed during counselling is the key element in the healing process.

To compliment this approach I offer Mindfulness practices which help to develop a greater sense of self awareness and emotional regulation.In all aspects of life these skills can help to create a gap between an automatic reaction to a situation and that of a response which is likely to be more positive.This approach will offer a means of becoming more at peace with yourself and others.
