About me

A person-centred counsellor delivering a warm and supportive integrative approach including transactional therapy, CBT formulations, and psychodynamic therapy.  I find that anxiety and depression are especially prevalent given the pace and structure of modern life, therefore they're commonly worked with in tandem to other presenting issues.

Tension often brings us to counselling, whether it be a result of sudden or unforeseen circumstances, or from historical events, or a combination of both.  Everyone deserves a safe space to explore their thoughts and feelings in confidentiality. When this environment is created, we're able to build a landscape, to reflect and make sense of what we have experienced, what is important to us, and where we'd like to go to next.

Oftentimes, greater clarity and understanding leads to an uplift in our quality of life due to increased confidence, fulfillment, and enjoyment.

Training, qualifications & experience

Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and experience in working across a spectrum of client needs such as:

  • Anxiety and Identity
  • Intimacy and Relationships
  • Loss, Grief, and Bereavement
  • Sexual Abuse and Rape
  • Body Image and Eating Disorders
  • OCD and Control
  • Depression and Suicidal Thoughts
  • Bullying and Discrimination (race, gender, sexuality, disability)
  • Addiction and Substance Use
  • Gambling and Pornography

Your age, sexuality, gender, race, culture, faith, social status, disability, and lifestyle have no bearing on the qualities which you'll receive in counselling.  I'm lucky enough to have lived and worked with people from all walks of life and this is a great privilege in counselling too.

Fees

Each client is considered on an individual basis based on income and student status, so fees are on a sliding scale.  From £25 for students to £35 and £45 based on income.  It's really helpful to have an initial chat to get a feel for one another.  Whether it be over the phone or over a cup of tea, you're very welcome to set a date.

Further information

I believe the best work is done by client led and client paced work. The direction of discovery, along with the frequency of sessions is set by the client, with myself offering meaningful and intuitive focusing in a safe environment.
