About me

If you are looking for a counsellor or therapist, then it is likely that you feel you need to understand yourself more or change something in your life. Sometimes it is helpful to talk to a skilled person, and I can offer a caring and professional space for you to do just that.

I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor and Registered Member of the BACP (MBACP)

I will listen and support you to explore whatever is troubling you. I can also help you consider possibilities for change. I work in an open and hopeful way and I use a range of therapy techniques to help meet my client’s needs.

My counselling approach recognises that human beings are complex, and this is what makes our life both rich and challenging at the same time.

As a person-centred counsellor, it’s important to me that clients feel safe and ‘seen’ in the counselling relationship. I will respect your expertise about your own life and I aim to be alongside you in a non-judgemental way, to help, support and guide you to explore your own issues and consider your own resources and next steps. At your own pace.

My core values as a professional therapist include: equality, respect, safety, confidentiality, being non-judgemental and offering hope in a supportive and sustaining counselling relationship.

What’s troubling you?

I offer counselling to adults for a range of issues, including:

  • Bereavement
  • Loss and grief
  • Mood difficulties: such as low mood and sadness, anxiety, anger issues
  • Substance misuse/addiction
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Low self-esteem and confidence issues
  • Negative thinking
  • Abuse
  • Work related issues
  • Caring
  • Family issues

Being able to be yourself, in a safe space, is important to developing a therapeutic relationship with a counsellor.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am trained as an Integrative Counsellor and I am happy to discuss this training in more detail should you wish to.

I am a qualified counsellor and a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy)  and I work within their Code of Professional Practice.

My work with clients includes: grief, loss, anxiety, low mood, thoughts of suicide or self-harm, abuse, relationship problems, work issues, anger and substance-misuse.

Keeping up to date and professional development are important to me, so that I can offer my clients the best service I can. For example, I have had additional bereavement counselling training and motivational therapy training. I consider my professional development carefully to help ensure that I can offer an holistic and diverse set of skills and support to clients.
I have previously worked as a counsellor with a national substance misuse charity and as a bereavement counsellor.
