Of special interest to me is the counselling psychology of attachment, early trauma and loss and how this may impact on the present for example: relationship issues, couples relationships, depression, anxiety, affairs and betrayal, adolescence, self harm, eating disorders, sexual abuse etc.
I offer therapy to Adults, Couples, Adolescents. I am a qualified Supervisor and offer Supervision to qualified Therapist's and Trainee counsellors.
My style of working is warm and non judgmental. My approach is to customise my way of working by integrating tools and strategies from several counselling disciplines to meet the needs of you the client. Your needs will be assessed at the initial session and an agreed focus and an indication of timescale will be discussed. My aim is to move you from a position of self doubt and insecurity to one where you feel more in control to give you back choice in your life and hopefully the confidence to use that choice.
