About me

We all have times in our lives when things can seem unclear and overwhelming and sometimes we need help to make sense of what is happening. My belief is that we grow in relationship and it takes strength to reach out and to connect with other but, in doing this we are better able to make contact with ourselves.

I believe that each individual holds the answers they seek within and my aim is to help my clients to find them. I offer a safe, non-judgemental environment in which clients can talk through their thoughts and feelings. I work holistically and relationally in line with my Humanistic philosophy and I am passionate about helping others to gain insight into their unconscious processes in order to help them to grow as an individual and to feel acceptance of self.

I have experience of working one to one with clients of different cultures, ages and backgrounds. As a full member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) I work in accordance with their code of ethics to provide a safe and confidential service for my clients.
