About me

In our busy lives, it can become increasingly difficult to give ourselves enough reflective space to gather our thoughts and resolve our issues.

Counselling offers that space.

Why Counselling?

Everyone's life will be met with both wonderful joy and demanding challenges.  During difficult times, counselling provides people with a place where they can talk about what is happening in their life and how they feel about it.  Perhaps for the first time, you will have an opportunity to be heard in a non-judgemental, warm and caring environment.  As you are discussing very personal and sensitive issues, it is important that you choose a well-trained and experienced professional.

Seeking help could be the best decision you ever made.

As a BACP registered therapist and accredited counsellor, you can be assured that I have the training and experience to offer you a high standard of counselling.  My broad range of experience has been accumulated through my work in a clinical setting, my private practice and as part of an Employee Assistance Programme in the workplace.  I am also a supervisor for Cruse Bereavement.

Each client is an individual and therefore each client's needs are unique.  As an integrative therapist, I work towards identifying those needs and discovering the underlying issues that are preventing my clients from living life to the full.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and offer a confidential, non-judgemental service within their guidelines.

Relationship/Couple Counselling

Couple counselling offers a unique, safe space where issues can be explored - sometimes for the first time. A specialist, trained relationship therapist can help a couple explore how their habitual patterns of behavior and most common transactions have a meaning, which, once fully understood, can give them real freedom to change if they wish. They can help a couple list what’s important to them in any relationship, and help show how these things might be achieved together. They can also facilitate both partners gaining a sense of themselves - both in the relationship, and as individuals too.
