I'm a graduate member of the British Psychological Society and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I am passionate about our understanding of the human mind and the thoughts and patterns which sometimes become obstacles to our happiness.
Whilst primarily Integrative Humanistic in approach, where it benefits my clients I seek to integrate CBT theory, tools and understanding, working collaboratively to facilitate change.
Whilst first and foremost working to my client's agenda, I hope to equip clients with the skills and resilience they need to meet life's challenges.
In addition to being part of the team at Bay Therapy and Counselling, I also work from www.shallwetalk.co.uk and you can find out more about me there.
