About me

What I offer within counselling sessions

I am a registered member of the BACP, working with adults, couples, children (yr 7 and above) and adolescents evenings and weekdays. I integrate the humanistic models of person-centred therapies, Gestalt and Existentialism and also draw from the psychodynamic model. I believe that each person is unique and therefore will respond to different models and techniques to build the counselling relationship. I feel a trusting, non-judgemental relationship within the counselling room is essential for positive change, giving you the space you need to be heard and allowing you to lead the way at your own pace. I am able to work creatively with people who find it difficult to express their feelings and emotions with others and feel I have a natural affinity with adolescents. Exploring past and present experiences and situations may trigger raw emotions and I would be alongside you, working towards a future you would prefer, making your own decisions and empowering you going forward.

One to one counselling sessions provide time to explore what is concerning you without fear of judgement or criticism. I offer time to reflect and focus on yourself in a safe, confidential and supportive space, that can be powerful and beneficial to you. Gaining awareness and understanding of oneself and patterns of behaviour, can lead to the changes you wish to make for a happier life. I passionately feel that no issue is too small and that one is never too young or too old to make positive changes
