About me

Hello!

I am a Professional Integrative Counsellor, and I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). There is a strong person centred element to the way I work, although I also combine different modalities according to the need of the individual. I believe every person has the resources within them to grow and become more fulfilled. My focus is building our therapeutic relationship and developing an atmosphere of trust, as it is in this environment that self-acceptance and psychological healing can take place. Therapy is a collaborative process, where we will work together in an environment free from negativity and judgement, where you can safely explore your issues and emotions.

Life is challenging! The way we perceive our emotions can have a huge impact on our mental health.  Expressing our emotions and verbalising our experience allows us to process the events that happen to us. Maintaining good mental health is just as important as staying physically healthy and is vital to the ability to engage with ourselves in a positive way and connect to our experience in a way that allows us to grow and develop healthily.

I am committed to providing a dedicated, professional and friendly service. 

As well as traditional therapy, I also offer 'walk and talk' sessions.

My appointment times are flexible and I am available for weekend appointments.

Training, qualifications & experience

My counselling experience has been gained through working in Local Primary Mental Health Support Services (NHS), offering 1:1 counselling sessions to individuals with a diverse range of mental health issues such as anger management, depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, bereavement and suicidal thoughts.

I have worked extensively with conflict resolution, assertiveness training and managing challenging behaviour. Previous to becoming a counsellor I supported individuals with Learning Difficulties and Autism.

I have a Foundation Degree in Integrative Counselling and I am a Registered member of the British Association of Counselling and psychotherapy (BACP). I work to the BACP Ethical Framework and I am committed to my self-development as a therapist, undertaking regular training.
