I offer counselling offer based on respect for you, working at the right pace for you, in the right way for you. I see adults and young people as clients. I am fully qualified, (level 6 diploma, accredited by the BACP, Certificate in Couple's Counselling, Certificate in Counselling Children and Adolescents). BACP registered Accredited member. Fully insured. Over 15 years of DBS / CRB (police) checks.
I am an "Integrative" counsellor. This means I use the best mix of several theories to suit each individual client. (Person Centred, Gestalt and Psychodynamic). I have an interest in Carl Jung and am very pleased to help you explore the "bigger questions" in life, if appropriate. I am equally happy to work on resolving daily personal issues - relationships, stress and anxiety, grief and many other issues. Having been a meditation teacher I can support you in exploring or extending your mindfulness / awareness practice.
