I am a fully qualified professional counsellor and psychotherapist with a proven track record of helping people work through their problems. I offer a safe, confidential and non judgemental relationship in which you can explore personal or difficult issues that may be causing you distress. As your counsellor, I will listen to you with genuineness, empathy, and respect. I will strive to understand you and your world, so as to help you move towards change, and enable you to take charge. I am comfortable working with people with stress, anxiety, low mood, grief, life transitions, relationship problems, low self esteem, work related issues, and depression.
I am a registered member of the BACP, which means that I meet the strict standards required by the BACP Ethical Framework.
My counselling methods are : Person Centred, Integrative, Humanistic, and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT).
