About me

Most of us experience feelings of sadness, loss, frustration, anger and stress at some time in our lives. It can be very difficult to express, understand and resolve these feelings when we are emotionally distressed. It may also be difficult to share some issues with family and friends for fear of being judged or misunderstood.

I am here to offer you an empathic, non-judgmental and confidential ear. I am a fully qualified counsellor and psychotherapist, offering a safe, calm and supportive space for you to work through those experiences and feelings, which are preventing you from leading a happy and fulfilling life.

I believe that each person is unique and, as such, I vary my style to meet the needs of each client. My counselling techniques are therefore informed by a wide variety of counselling/psychotherapy approaches, and I describe myself as an “integrative counsellor”.

A good client-counsellor relationship is essential to the counselling process. I aim to work in a collaborative way, where all decisions are made together.

As a counsellor, my role is to facilitate a process whereby you recognise and draw on your inner strengths and resources in order to make any changes which might be necessary. I do this by actively listening to what is (or isn’t) being expressed and by using techniques which will enable you to explore your feelings and experiences at a deeper level. I may also offer you sensitive and supportive challenges to help you to gain a new perspective on your concerns.

I offer individual, face-to-face counselling to adults and young people (age 16 upwards).

As a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, I am guided by a strict code of conduct and ethics. This ensures that I work in a professional manner. It also ensures that I keep abreast with new developments in counselling and psychotherapy.

I worked for Victim Support for many years, offering advice and information to female victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse. This experience provided me with an in-depth insight into the issues faced by this particular client group. My experience also enabled me to develop the skills needed to meet their often very complex needs.

I also worked for the Royal National Institute for the Blind as a research assistant, which brought me into direct contact with visually-impaired people. The role provided me with a sound understanding of the physical and emotional needs of disabled people.

I have extensive experience of supporting pupils with special needs, such as those with physical, learning and emotional difficulties, using counselling skills and other techniques.

I have also worked for a drug and alcohol agency, providing brief and open-ended counselling to clients with substance-misuse issues. Addiction provides a means of escape from painful or stressful experiences and clients generally present with a range of issues including those listed below.
