I have over 13 years of experience, working as a counsellor. I have had the privilege of working with many courageous people who have faced difficulties in their lives – people from different backgrounds, cultures and with an age range of 10-70+ have been able to explore what is worrying them, gain a better understanding of themselves, their issues and they have gained more control of their lives. This facilitates the possibility of change.
I offer a supportive and confidential environment, working together with my clients, exploring with you areas of your life that you would like to change, improve or simply gain more insight into or understanding about.
I work in an integrative way, which means that I draw on different counselling theories, and by gaining an understanding of your issues and where your problems stem from, you will be able to make the changes that you want to, helping you to live the life that you want.
I am a registered member of The British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by The Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy. That also means that I am fully insured and committed to continuing professional development.
