I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist and BACP Accredited counsellor with experience in working with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, bereavement and loss, substance misuse and addictions. I have experience of EAP (Employee Assistance Programme) counselling and work with issues affecting workplace stress, relationships, conflict and critical incident.
I have worked effectively and potently with many clients who, through their relationship with me, have been able to work successfully through emotional issues and make changes in their lives with greater self-understanding and awareness.
My approach to client work is empathic and non-judgemental. I am both supportive and gently challenging and maintain high standards of ethical and professional practice in my work.
I work with individuals and couples.
