About me

I am a BACP Registered Counsellor & Psychotherapist. My aim is to offer a therapeutic experience that is safe, non-judgemental and accepting.

Life can be stressful, and many of us experience difficulties that leave us feeling confused and alone. Counselling can help and support you to explore these difficulties by offering you the opportunity to talk and share how you feel.

I have experience of working with a wide range of issues, including; loss and bereavement, trauma, abuse, dissociation, stress and anxiety, mental health issues, addictions, relationship issues, self-harm, anger management and low self-confidence.

Please feel free to contact me for a chat about your needs. I am happy to answer any enquiries and questions you may have.

"Sometimes it's the smallest decisions that change your life forever."


How
I work

As an Integrative Counsellor, I combine theory and techniques from a variety of approaches, such as, CBT, Psychodynamic and Humanistic/Existential and integrate them into an approach that is flexible and tailored to meet your specific needs or goals. For those who find talking about distressing issues difficult, I also offer the option to work creatively, using art materials or phototherapy techniques.


I offer short-term or long-term therapy and will regularly check in with you to ensure you are getting what you need from therapy.
