About me

I'm a qualified and experienced counsellor, registered with the BACP. Over the past 3 years I have worked with clients with different issues including depression, anxiety, abuse, panic attacks, bullying, addiction, difficult relationship patterns and low self-esteem, to name a few.

To get the most out of therapy it is absolutely crucial that you feel safe, supported, and comfortable sharing whatever is on your mind. Therapy is about giving you a forum where you can do just that whilst being listened to, without judgement or disruption, which sometimes doesn't happen in our everyday lives.

My role as a therapist is not to advise but to facilitate you. You will remain in charge and set the pace of your own therapeutic process. There will be moments where I will challenge you, and offer insights and observations, but in a collaborative and enabling way.

As my approach is integrative, I work with different therapeutic methods, depending on your needs and requirements. Everyone is an individual and what helps one person may not necessarily help another in the same way.
