I am an experienced Integrative Counsellor, my aim is to provide for you a warm, safe and supportive space, in which I offer an opportunity for you to talk about and explore issues that are troubling you. This supported exploration may help you to gain new perspectives and empower you to make positive changes in your life.
Today, I work in Private Practice as well as offering my services to the charity, MIND as a clinical Supervisor and more recently I have had the opportunity to work freelance offering my counselling services to Atrium HR, working remotely with expatriates. This has extended my knowledge culturally providing a broader and more diverse view of the world.
I provide counselling for adults and young people. Supervision for qualified Counsellors, students and other professions.
If you are unsure whether Counselling is right for you or you have any questions about any aspect of my service, I offer an initial 15 minute consultation to explore and clarify your needs. There is no fee for this time.
