About me

I work relationally, using the shared experience of me and my client being with each other as the core of our work together. Whilst this allows for clients to simply be heard and accepted and to have the space they need, it also offers opportunities for counsellor and client to dig deeper together as we explore the patterns and roots of the client's life experiences. This process of developing an understanding of yourself can be healing and rewarding.

I have indicated below that there are many different areas that I can help with. Obviously, these are experienced very differently by different individuals so I am reluctant to say either way that certain problems can or can't be helped through counselling with me. Our initial consultation (there is no charge for this) will give both of us a better idea of whether working together seems like a good way forward.

If you are interested in working with me, please call, text or fill in the online form. The next step is to have a fairly brief phonecall: I will give you a call in which I will take a few details and we can arrange an initial consultation.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have an MSc in Therapeutic Counselling which is accredited by BACP

My practical training was largely in settings provided for clients working through the following: bereavement/loss, addictions and sexual abuse. I remain a counsellor for the sexual abuse charity. I also have significant experience (from another sector) of working with dyslexic people and I appreciate the frustrations and strengths of the dyslexic mind.

I would like to reiterate my message above, however, and say that there isn't one type of client: Across all the settings I have worked in, every client presented with their own unique story and issues that they wanted to work through, and their counselling journeys were personal to them.
