About me

I am a fully qualified professional Counsellor who has a range of experience from working with children and young people to adults ranging from 18-60+. I provide a safe environment where you can come and explore any issues or feelings you have, without the fear of being judged or told what to do. I believe we all have the tools to solve our own problems or at least find some acceptance around them; sometimes things are just too hazy and jumbled to see clearly.

In my own experience I have found that having the space to explore what is going on with another human being outside your personal life can work wonders. I am not saying I can 'fix' something that has happened in the past or tell you what to do in a certain situation. What I can do is hopefully provide you with some needed support and build a relationship based on trust and understanding allowing you to work through any problems you may be experiencing.

My training is Humanistic Integrative and I use person-centred, Gestalt, TA and CBT. I work with clients who have a range of issues from minor through to more complex issues. I feel that every client is different and therefore would tailor our sessions to best suit your needs.
