About me

Life has a habit of throwing a spanner in the works when you least need or expect it. From a specific issue to a general feeling that things could be a little better, counselling and therapy allows us to broach these sometimes difficult topics in a safe, supported and confidential environment.

I am a qualified Therapeutic Counsellor, working with clients both on a long and short term basis, covering a wide range of emotional issues. My method utilises a ‘client centred’ approach, meaning that you take the lead during the time we have together - at your speed, talking about what you want to talk about. I have experience with adults and young people and enjoy working with both individuals and couples.

I offer Walk and Talk therapy in addition to face to face sessions...

Everyone processes things differently especially when facing adversity and this is something I aim to embrace. Whilst traditionally counselling involves sitting and speaking (which of course is a very effective option), some people like to write or draw to help them reflect their thoughts or feelings, or even to involve movement. If you find the thought of sitting face to face with someone off-putting or intimidating maybe combining a walk or some gentle exercise into your session would put you at ease - I have qualifications in fitness and dance to allow us to do this. It is my intention to co-create something with you that meets your needs.

Just a few of the things people bring to counselling include:- Depression, Anxiety, Stress, Anger, Bereavement, Abuse, Relationship Issues, Family Problems, Childhood Events, Self Harming, Eating Disorders, Trauma, Work Issues. There are many many more!

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and am committed to working within it's ethical framework. I also hold all appropriate insurances.
