Hello and welcome,
I am a qualified counsellor with 12 years experience in working with survivors of Sexual, Physical, and Emotional abuse and the ongoing devastating affect it has on everyday life. Prior to setting up my own practice I worked for an agency where I gained experience in working with clients who had been sexual abuse as children. I believe creating a safe secure, confidential and respectful atmosphere will give you the confidence and courage to explore deep painful issues. The process of exploring issues increases insight and understanding so enables you to facilitate change and patterns of behaviour, finding more positive ways of coping with painful emotions and allowing personal growth to take place.
My approach is person-centred, however over the past 12 years I have found myself using other approaches to accommodate my client’s individual needs such as Transactional Analysis (TA), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and also Creative Intervention where appropriate inner child work.
I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) therefore, abide by the Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am also a member of the Trauma and Abuse Group (TAG ) and ( DBS )checked.

The initial session will last approximately 30 minutes.
This will give us the opportunity to explore what counselling is, your expectations of counselling and will also allow each of us to ask questions without being judged. The session will be carried out in a warm, safe, caring and confidential environment. This will be our chance to see whether we can establish a mutual trusting relationship.
There will be no pressure to commit to further sessions, you can go away and think before you make a decision to enter into a counselling relationship.
