About me

Hello and welcome.

As a counsellor I offer individuals a confidential opportunity to explore personal and relational issues in a safe and comfortable environment.

Often our behaviours and ways of being, that have been useful in the past, no longer serve us well in our current lives. Counselling can be a space to gain an awareness into what is keeping us stuck in unhelpful patterns of behaviour, exploration of which can give us a new perspective and understanding. Developing a greater understanding and awareness of ourselves can increase our sense of freedom, with new choices and possibilities arising, and a sense of clarity in how to move forward and live a more fulfilling life.

I provide a space in which you can truly be yourself, without a fear of judgement or expectations and demands being put upon you. I work in a warm, supportive, open and collaborative way that enables you to explore and make sense of your story.

I believe counselling will take as long as it needs and for this reason I offer short and long-term counselling within my practice. My theoretical approach is Humanistic and Integrative, which means I use several distinct models of counselling, all of which are client-centred and non-directive.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a number of years’ experience working with individuals from different age groups, cultures and backgrounds.

I completed an Advanced Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy in 2008 and a further Diploma in Humanistic and Integrative Counselling with the Bath Centre of Psychotherapy and Counselling (BCPC) in 2017. I have trained with ‘BRIEF’ – Solution Focused Practice and attended courses in working with building resilience and self-esteem. I have recently completed a Post Qualifying Diploma in Counselling Children and Young People. I am also a trained Cruse Bereavement Care volunteer.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and committed to working within their Ethical Framework.

I have practices in the Old Town area of Swindon and North Swindon.
