Welcome to my counselling page. I am always happy to answer any questions you might have about what to expect from counselling or about me and how I work. We can do this on the phone or by email.
Maybe you are struggling with a difficult life event and/or perhaps you are stuck in ways of thinking or behaviours that are not helpful for you. In a non judgemental relationship within a safe setting and with an appropriate level of challenge I will help you explore, identify and find ways of managing whatever it is that is troubling you. Together we can look at what has led to you getting to where you are now and what you might need to move forward in a more authentic way.
Accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, I have over 15 years experience of offering short and long term counselling in various settings including the NHS, employee assistance programmes, higher education and schools and for charities that support survivors of rape and abuse.
I work with people experiencing issues including anxiety, depression, bereavement and loss, anger, low self- esteem, relationship difficulties, work related problems and trauma.
Training, qualifications & experience
After a Foundation Course in Counselling and Psychotherapy I gained a Diploma in Person Centred Counselling* in 2003. Since then I have attended various training and define my way of working as Integrative. This means that I draw upon several different models of counselling based on what my client may find of benefit.

Its important to me to be up to date and as well informed as possible in counselling theory and I therefore regularly attend workshops and training courses.

*Devised by Carl Rogers, this is also known as Rogerian or client-centred counselling. It is based on the view that everyone has the capacity and desire for personal growth and change, given the right conditions. Rather than being seen as the expert and directing the therapy, the counsellor offers unconditional positive regard, empathy and congruence to help the client develop and grow in their own way.
