About me

About me

I am a qualified integrative counsellor and offer therapy to adults and young people (min. age 18).

My core belief is that everyone is capable and deserving of positive change in their life.

I am trained in a number of therapeutic modalities. I find that, just as the individual is unique, so too is the therapeutic experience. I am able to tailor these techniques to meet your individual needs. The therapeutic relationship is very much an alliance; one in which we can work collectively to explore your sense of self and empower you to gain the tools you need to make positive changes in your life.

About Therapy

People seek therapy for many reasons. You may have been faced with a sudden and difficult change in your life. You may be experiencing difficulties in your relationships; either personal or work. You may be finding your anxiety overwhelming. You may want some understanding around behaviours that are upsetting you. You may have ongoing issues that you are finding restricting.

Therapy can offer a safe containing space to unpack what is on your mind and have someone bear witness to your story and explore and address any changes you would like to make for yourself.

I can work to both a time limited (set number of sessions) and an open ended capacity. This is something we can assess together. Sessions are once weekly for a duration of 50 minutes.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists and work to an ethical framework.

I have full indemnity insurance and am DBS checked.
