About me

I understand that contacting a Counsellor for the first time can sometimes feel difficult, especially if you are unsure how counselling can help you. My aim as a counsellor is to provide a safe, non-judgmental, peaceful environment, to enable you to feel comfortable in exploring your problems or difficulties in confidence, helping you to find understanding and meaning.

I am a professionally trained, qualified counsellor and a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapy - MBACP. I work in accordance to their framework for ethical practice and am committed to ongoing professional and personal development.  I hold an enhanced Criminal Records Bureau DBS disclosure, and am fully insured.

People seek counselling because they are experiencing difficulties or distress in their life. You may be feeling anxious, depressed, having relationship issues or family problems; struggling to find confidence, you may have experienced a traumatic event in your life, such as a bereavement that has left you feeling lonely or anxious. You may be feeling stuck or confused and not know what the problem is. Whichever of these describes your situation best, working with a Counsellor can be the first steps in creating changes to improve your well-being.

My training includes a range of psychodynamic and humanistic approaches, as well as CBT. I will work according to the needs and lifestyle of the individual, rather than imposing a specific technique. What guides my work more than anything else is my belief in the importance of the relationship between client and counsellor, which needs to be based on trust, mutual respect and the desire to work in partnership.

I offer counselling to individual adults and couples over a long or short term according to need, offering flexible appointments throughout the week.
