About me

Does it feel like time for a change, are you looking for support in understanding and making sense of life events. Maybe you just feel like something is missing, or you may be feeling stuck. Whatever is on your mind, contact me to discuss what might best help you. I am an experienced Integrative Counsellor and Life Coach, specialising in attachment and relationship issues both personal and work.  My expertise also extend to depression, stress, anxiety and addiction. I can help you reflect, clarify what's most important, and find your own way forward.

Life Coach

As a life coach I will help you master the tools needed to thrive in this crazy but amazing world.  Look at me like a personal trainer, my job is to help you reach your goals or make a change in your life. I will help to get you out of your head and start taking action in the areas of your life that you wish to change. I will play the roles of a motivator, a strategist and an accountability partner. My goal is to help you reach your goal in the most efficient, effective and rewarding way possible.

Counsellor

As an integrative counsellor my foundations derive mainly from psychodynamic therapy, Gestalt and person centred therapy and my core beliefs and practices greatly use and is influenced by inter cultural therapy, attachment therapy, and racial identity.

I am aware of the importance of race, culture, beliefs, values, attitudes, religion and language in the life of the client and I am equipped to work with culturally diverse groups, with my experience of working with clients from LGBT and BAME communities.

My aim is always to tailor therapy to the client and not the client to the therapy, this ensures that the focus remains on the clients agenda and the client remains as the navigator through his or her journey.

My areas of experience include Drugs and Alcohol and common mental illness.  I have worked quite vastly with bereavement, sexual health, gender identity, sexual traumas, eating disorders, cultural identity, anxiety, behavioural difficulties, depression, emotional abuse, family difficulties, panic attacks, pregnancy/family planning, physical, verbal and mental abuse, relationship struggles, self-harm, self-esteem and stress.

If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.
