About me

Getting Started

We all experience difficult emotions and anxiety at times but if these feelings become constant or overwhelming it can leave you feeling concerned as to why you feel as you do.

Maybe there's something happening in your life currently, a situation, a place, a person maybe that you're struggling to make sense of?

Talking with a therapist can be the most positive decision for you and those closest to you.

How I can help you

My aim is to work with you, I offer a supportive, confidential space, a place to be heard, where you may talk through whatever is on your mind.

My counselling approach is psychodynamic, which means that I work in the following ways:

I believe that our thinking and behaviour is affected by certain things that we are not fully aware of; past experiences that are stopping you from moving forward in your present situations. Rather than remaining stuck they can be unravelled, talked about, allowing for growth and change.

This approach can offer understanding and meaning to situations that may be troubling you or causing you anxiety, anger or sadness. Working together in a supportive non-judgemental way will allow you to voice your feelings about things and give greater self awareness, allowing you to make lasting, meaningful changes.

How I work

Session times are 50 minutes and we would meet regularly, usually once a week at the same time and day.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified counsellor, registered with both the BPC (British Psychoanalytic Council) and BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists).

I also have a BA (Hons) and hold a current Government Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) certificate.

I have experience of working with a diverse range of people and difficulties.
