About me

About me

I believe that warmth, trust, safety and genuineness are essential in the counselling relationship. I strive to encourage and empower clients to establish their goals. Valuing difference and individuality I may draw from a number of approaches to best fit the person or the presenting issue. I believe counselling is collaborative and therefore encourage and value feedback and client goals to guide the pace and direction of the work.

I believe in an individual’s potential and drive for positive change and in their own vast resources. I support clients to feel empowered and begin to direct the change they seek.

Changes however can sometimes occur without choice -events and life may bring times of loss, distress, self-doubt, a feeling of 'being alone' or simply 'questioning.' Counselling can offer a space to be heard, to explore without judgement or to process events or feelings. Though it can feel a big step and sometimes challenging, it may also help to enhance self-awareness, understanding and self-compassion and begin to create the possibility for different choices, a sense of direction or simply self-acceptance.

I offer short or longer term therapy to adults ranging from 18 years and above.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a nurse background  which I believe gradually led me towards my work as a counsellor and developed my interest in the connection between mind and body.

I am guided by the ethical framework of both BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and the National Counselling Society (NCS) and attend regular supervision and CPD (Continuing professional development).

Alongside private practice I also currently work in a voluntary setting and have experience in university and college counselling services where collectively, issues have included bereavement, relationship difficulties, self -esteem, confidence and trust issues, anxiety, trauma and depression.

  • Professional Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy(Accredited by the National Counselling Society)
  • Certificate in Foundations of Counselling (Accredited by the National Counselling Society)
  • BA(Hons) Nursing Studies
  • CPD includes:
  • Trauma focused therapy- Phase 1 work
  • Building better therapeutic relationships
  • Bereavement training
