I am a qualified Humanistic Integrative Counsellor/Psychotherapist & I work in a non-judgemental way that offers warmth, empathy and integrity. I offer a non-directive approach to counselling, providing you with the freedom to explore what you wish at a pace which is comfortable for you.
I am fully insured & I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). I adhere to & am bound by the Ethical Framework for Good Practice in counselling & psychotherapy & I regularly undertake continuing professional development. I attend monthly supervision for my practice & I also hold an Enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) check.
We all experience challenges in life & often, we have difficulties which get in the way of living or relationships. Dealing with negative emotions can be exhausting, especially if you feel that you have no one to talk to for fear of being judged. This can leave us feeling that there is no way forward.
Whether it's the loss of a job, divorce, anxiety & depression, loss of a loved one, substance abuse, body image, self-doubt or just needing help with balancing the demands of life, such as parenting, relationships, work or illness, therapy can help.
As a counsellor, I can offer you a safe, confidential space to discuss anything you wish, no matter how big or small. I will offer you empathy, compassion & confidentiality. I will listen to you, walk alongside you & together we can explore what is going on for you without judgement.
You don't need to have all the answers & you don't need to have worked out what is going on for you, that would be our work together.
