About me

I offer a safe space to explore what is going on for you in a confidential and nonjudgemental environment. I'm a qualified and experienced Humanistic Counsellor and Gestalt Therapist.

  • I offer short term and long term therapy.
  • I work with a variety of emotional issues including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, stress, abuse, bereavement and relationship issues.
  • I provide a confidential space where you can talk and be heard without feeling judged or criticised.
  • Together we will look at what is causing you difficulties and I will support you in identifying solutions to help you make changes in your life.
  • I believe in choice and the human potential for growth.
  • Together we will try to find the meaning and direction in your life and discover self-awareness, wisdom and resilience that you already have within you.

Every client is a unique person with unique life-paths and challenges and I work respectfully in this knowledge.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully trained counsellor and Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I have a BACP Accredited Diploma in Gestalt Counselling and Certificate in Humanistic Counselling. Informed by my training in Gestalt therapy my approach is holistic. I provide an open, warm, and supportive space in which you can explore past or current issues. I practice in a collaborative way, so that together we can create a therapeutic relationship where you feel understood and accepted.

I attend regular supervision and I'm committed to improving my service by attending continuing professional development courses. The ethical guidelines that underpin my work are defined by the BACP (https://www.bacp.co.uk/events-and-resources/ethics-and-standards/ethical-framework-for-the-counselling-professions/).
