About me

Mindful that considering counselling is such a daunting process, I aspire to provide a comfortable setting and presence in which problems can be explored and hopefully, lessened.

About me

I am a Person-Centered Integrative Therapist driven by my interest in the diverse human experience of ‘life’. Valuable experience gained during my role as a Samaritan and a Bereavement Support Volunteer before becoming a therapist, serve me well to congruently facilitate the exploration of one’s own experiencing.

Daily living can feel extremely challenging on one’s mental and physical health, the impact of stress and distress can result in unspoken, unresolved issues, leading to an overwhelming sense of feeling unheard.

I aspire to offer a safe, confidential, accepting space in which individuals can explore their problems, hopes and fears. I believe the ‘self’, a concept so frequently hidden beneath the concept of ‘other’, when brought into awareness, can improve well being and introduce a renewed outlook on life. We are all so very different and expectations to articulate thoughts verbally might feel challenging for some clients.

We are all so very different and expectations to articulate thoughts verbally might feel challenging for some clients. I therefore offer the availability of integrating creative interventions to help unlock otherwise suppressed emotions.

I am bound by the 'Ethical Framework' of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy:

Further information

I also work as a counsellor with an organisation for adults with Aspergers (ASD Level 1) and have personal experience of Autism. I feel this enhances my understanding of issues presented by individuals on the Autism Spectrum and awareness of helpful strategies to support the Autistic way of being in this world.

Autism is becoming increasingly recognised as a 'different way of perceiving the world', contradictory to historical ideas and beliefs. Please view this wonderfully powerful article published in the Autism Network International newsletter, Our Voice, Volume 1, Number 3, 1993. Primarily written to inform parents, but I feel, signifies the pressure of expectations and shared systems experienced by many individuals on the Autism Spectrum http://www.autreat.com/dont_mourn.html
