Looking for a professional to work with and explore what is going on for you can be daunting, maybe I can help.
Are you looking for someone in your corner, with a gentle presence and warmth to accompany you while you figure out that which means a lot to you?
Clients I have worked with have experienced loss and bereavement, depression, anxiety and stress, illness, domestic abuse and trauma. Although the therapy can sometimes be tough, clients have reported during and after sessions feeling hope, a future and opportunities where previously they did not.
How I work
I work in an Integrative way – this means I call on Person Centred, Transactional Analysis and Gestalt theory and techniques to help you progress in your journey.
What this means for you is that I don’t believe “one size fits all” and will tailor the session to you and your needs. This can include working creatively – don’t panic, I’m not expecting Picasso!
If you would like to find out more, call or send me an email to arrange an initial 10 – 15 minute chat to see if we could work together. I want you to feel confident that you are working with the right person for you, or if there is someone else I can refer you onto who would be better suited to you.
If you are not able to call or email me, feel free to send a text and we can book in an initial 10 minute conversation.
Training, qualifications & experience
My work in Counselling has been based in charities and progressed through to private practice. The charities I have worked for are Counselling Plus, Cruse Bereavement Care and Fegans. I have worked in a 1:1 setting and groups.

I hold a Diploma in Integrative Counselling from Wealden Psychology Institute (Psychotherapy and Counselling) and have taken further courses in Couples Counselling and specialise in Trauma Therapy with a Post Graduate Diploma in Trauma Therapy from NAOS Institute in London.
