About me

‘We don’t have to do all of it alone, we were never meant to’ Brene Brown

This quote resonates with me and acknowledges that we all have times in our life when we all need support and that we do not need to go through difficult and distressing times alone.

Talking to someone objective, about your worries, problems and any difficult feelings can help you to cope with everyday stresses. I have worked with clients experiencing anxiety, depression, a loss or bereavement and those experiencing major life events, which they are struggling to make sense of.

Working together

My aim is to work along side you, offering a safe and warm therapeutic space where you can reflect upon your feelings and be supported to explore your worries. I aim to work with you and to provide a space which is just for you, to help you to find a solution that works best for your well being.

I work within an integrative approach which means that I bring together different ways of working to fit individual needs. I am committed to the counselling process and firmly believe that the relationship between client and counsellor is central to positive outcomes. I work short and long term counselling and we can discuss this during our first session.I am a registered and professional counsellor and a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). This means that I work within their ethical framework and codes of practice.
