About me

I work with people as individuals. I use an integrative approach as I do not believe that one style fits all. This means that I will utilise the most appropriate approach according to individual needs and wants. The main approaches I work with, but not limited to, are TA (Transactional Analysis), CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), Humanistic Therapies. I also work using EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing) a treatment with great success for different types of trauma, PTSD, phobias, but also becoming more widely used for a variety of other concerns.

I work with a range of issues- please see below. Sometimes people may struggle to understand why they feel the way they do, and counselling can help to ascertain what is happening, and why, enabling you to move towards a healthier mindset and general wellbeing. Others may have very clear ideas about the cause of, or presenting problem they wish to seek some help and guidance for. I will work with you in a completely non-judgemental and empathic way to help you achieve your goal/s.

The sessions are provided in a safe and confidential environment whereby you can feel at ease to talk freely. As a therapist I will not tell you what to do, but will help guide you towards self discovery. We will work together.
