"Counselling is not as scary as it's made out to be – it is not like going to the dentist!"
Why come to counselling? With Counselling, be it either Individual or Couples counselling - we can explore issues such as Depression, Anxiety, Generalised anxiety, Stress or Relationship issues and many more.
Counselling can help you gain control and direction again. It is a time in your life where you can explore and reflect; together we can work through and answer questions which are troubling. Once you have discovered these answers we can then move you forward in your world and you can shine brighter.
I am an experienced, non-judgemental, friendly counsellor who is a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhears to BACP- Ethical framework. I have a wide experience;
I have great experience of working with teenagers; I am a counsellor for the Young Concern Trust (YCT). I also work in secondary schools as a counsellor, as well as working with students, couples and adults from a varied age and background in my private practice.
I can offer you a non-judgemental friendly confidential accepting environment – somewhere where you are allowed to truly be who you want to be and can explore all areas of self. I offer you the environment to explore yourself through various creative outlets.
"My work is not just confined to the chair, working with dyslexic clients, I find I have a particular strength in working with young people or those who struggle to express themselves in direct ways.

A little bit more about me..
As well as exploring counselling theory in-depth, due to my degree it has taught me to respect the frame and ethos of the Person-Centred approach and the integration of various counselling models (Existential, TA, CBT, etc) it has given me the opportunity to undertake professional placements, where I have developed my skills in practice. Additionally, the course had taught me to examine myself and explore and accept all parts of myself, be it good and bad, allowing me to grow and progress. This has made me a competent counsellor, as I am able to work safely to the client's best interest.
This journey of self-discovery has allowed me to develop my own individual style and philosophy of counselling, and I now work in a creative way as a therapist, integrating creative techniques, such as Sand Play and Narrative Therapy, with my core Humanistic Person-Centred Existential approach.
My work is not just confined to the chair, and working with dyslexic clients, I find I have a particular strength in working with people who struggle to express themselves in direct ways.
