About me

There are times in our lives where we face challenges that we don't know how to deal with. Seeing a counsellor can help you resolve what's troubling you and move forward into greater well-being and enjoyment of life.

I am a qualified Psychodynamic Counsellor and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and I adhere to their professional code of conduct and ethical framework for good practice.

Psychodynamic theory focuses on both the past and the present. The psychodynamic approach looks at how important the role of the unconscious and past experiences are on influencing our current behaviour. Together we will work towards a better understanding of where your problems have originated and how to deal with them and look to the future.

As a counsellor I aim to provide an empathic, supportive, safe, strictly confidential and non-judgemental space for you to explore and make sense of your thoughts and emotions from your individual perspective.

People come to therapy for many reasons including anxiety, depression, bereavement and low self-esteem. Others may be experiencing relationship difficulties, or wish to gain a better understanding of themselves and why they think, feel and behave as they do.

I work with adults and adolescents on a short or long term basis according to your needs. Each person is unique so I work in different ways to encourage greater insight and awareness.
