BA (Hons) MBACP Accred - Individuals, Couples, Supervision

About me

Counselling can provide an understanding of issues which can prevent us from enjoying life, reaching our potential and having healthy relationships. We are all affected by life's journey and can often have deep-rooted, painful issues that can be limiting us today. I can provide a safe and confidential place where we can explore issues that maybe troubling you.

I am a qualified, experienced counsellor with over 13 years experience and practise Relational-Integrative counselling.  Which means that I draw on a selection of theories to support my work and I believe that the relationship that is created between a client and their counsellor plays a significant part in the counselling process. I also offer CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy).

I aim to work with you in such a way that will support you as you address difficult, painful issues from your past or present, you might be feeling low, anxious, confused or struggling with something specific.  I aim to provide a basis on which to explore new or different ways of living your life and relationships.

I also offer marriage & relationship counselling to couples.

I am a trained supervisor for counsellors and offer individual and group supervision for training and qualified therapists.
