I am an experienced UKCP Registered Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. I am also on the PSA Accredited Register. I have qualified with a 5 year re-accreditation.
I work in an empathetic way, I'm non-judgemental and believe in confidentiality. I work spontaneously, helping to make my clients more aware of their own thoughts, feelings and behaviour which then enables them to grow an inner strength and move forward in their lives. I specialise in sexual abuse, rape and other domestic abuse issues and have worked for several years with an agency specialising in this field as a counsellor. I'm experienced in supporting both men and women who have experienced trauma as a result of sexual abuse.
Other fields of work are:
- Low self-esteem
- Eating disorders
- Sexual abuse
- Couple counselling
- Family counselling and many more issues.
How counselling can help.
My belief is life can be like the sea, it can be choppy, stormy, rough and calm. My motto is:
"Breaking through the waves of life together."
Together we can ride the storms and find calm again.
Counselling is offloading to someone who is trained to understand your worries or issues that you have come to counselling for. Having someone just to hear you can be enough, if you have never felt heard before. Sometimes coping tools can be shown to help lets say with anxiety, helping you to cope with your stressful times. It's not a cure I must add, it's just being able to feel safe when offloading your feelings. Every thing is confidential in the therapy room. Counselling helps you become more aware of yourself and your behaviour and how you feel at the time. Sessions usually start for 6 weeks for short term work, long term work is open ending.
I am an integrative counsellor, which means I use many different types of therapy. My main core is person-centred and gestalt, with a partial bit of CBT. Another type of therapy I work with is mindfulness, which means you train your anxieties naturally through meditation.
How to get started
I offer short term or long term counselling to anyone over the age of 12.
I have an understanding of being the client; it can feel very daunting to suddenly open up to a stranger, however it was the best move I made seeking counselling!
Please contact me via phone or email me and I shall respond promptly to arrange an initial telephone chat where we can discuss your needs and find out more information on what has brought you to counselling.

I also work with dreams. I believe that people can suppress emotions in the unconscious which may be revealed in symbols and dreams. I, therefore, work with dreams and listen to the images within them. I aim for the client to interpret their own images and what is ‘figure’ in their dream. This work, I believe, can help the client bring the unconscious to the conscious mind. I may also work with the client to ‘walk the dream’.
I also use art therapy skills as part of my integrative therapy.
