About me

I am a professional counsellor and offer a warm, supportive and confidential counselling environment. I have particular experience of working with people with depression, anxiety and low self-esteem.

I have been inspired over the last 15 years to train and practice as a counsellor by difficulties I have experienced and worked through in my own life. My personal journey and training have encouraged me that there is always reason for hope, even in our most difficult days and that we can come through to brighter times and a fuller life.

How counselling can help

Counselling can help at various times in our lives. Many come for counselling when they are coping with a crisis or working through grief and loss. Others come because they are struggling with feelings they have battled with for a long time, like not being good enough, stress, anxiety or depression and hopelessness.

Many clients really value this weekly space, dedicated to them, to step back and reflect and to make sense of what they are experiencing. They find that it can help them to cope better day to day, increase their confidence and self worth and bring about long-lasting change in relationships.

About me

After gaining a professional certificate and diploma in counselling I completed a Masters degree in Integrative Psychotherapy. I work as an Integrative counsellor which means that I draw from a range of therapeutic approaches, including psychodynamic, person-centred, cognitive (CBT) and spiritually-attuned therapy.

I am a member of two widely recognised professional bodies, the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and the Association of Christian Counsellors (ACC). I am also registered with the BACP Register of Counsellors & Psychotherapists which is accredited by the UK Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care.
