About me

I am a fully trained counsellor/psychotherapist who works with individuals, young people and couples having relationship problems. Most of my work in this area is done with individuals but sometimes with couples.
I trained at the University of Bristol completing Certificate, Post Graduate Diploma and Msc in counselling. My dissertation for the masters was on adoptees who search for a parent.

My counselling approach is person centred, humanistic and integrative, always trying to tailor my sessions around the person who is sitting there. I am versatile in trying to adapt to the needs of the person or couple I am with at the time. I try to see the whole person and to work together with them to come to an understanding of their problems. For me therapy includes looking at the persons life phases and the life experiences that have shaped their development until now.

What to expect during therapy:
Our first session is to establish how we can work together and to explore the approaches that best suit you the client. Depending on what we mutually decide our work can be short term or open-ended. The work is collaborative always jointly agreeing the strategies best suited to your needs. We will look to begin with at why you felt you needed help and what anxieties, worries or crises brought you to seek counselling. I try to create a safe space in which you can bring all your problems and concerns. These can often seem unsurmountable but therapy can be the place in which you discover and  identify unthought of solutions.
