About me

Counselling is a place where you can explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours in a safe and non-judgmental space. Some people come to counselling wanting to better manage their anxiety, others to heal from the past.  

How I work

My core counselling training stems from solution-focused and relational therapy.  I have experience working in charities, specialising in bereavement work, trauma, general anxiety and PTSD. I have also completed EMDR Accredited Training, Parts 1 to 3 and can offer EMDR as part of the sessions.

As a member of the National Counselling Society and EMDR UK, I work within their Ethical Framework and I am professionally supervised.

In our initial session, we will discuss the things you would like to focus on as well as my approach to ascertain if what I offer is what you are looking for.  The easiest way to begin is to send me a short email to either book the first session or to arrange a short free phone call in case you have additional questions.
