About me

As an integrative counsellor I am excited to be able to offer you a relaxed environment that really can meet your needs. Having trained in multiple areas such as Person Centred, CBT, Gestalt and Mindfulness we can explore which works best for you and if needed we can change our focus to best meet your needs. Alongside speaking therapy and mindfulness I also use chair based activities and play. Using activities during therapy can be a great release and allow for a journey to flow when perhaps words won’t come.

I work with youth people, adults & families/small groups.

One of my specialist areas is working with young people aged 11-18 years inclusive. Some of the areas I have worked with include Depression, Anxiety, Self Harm, Phyical pain caused by overwhelming psychological pressure, Loneliness, Low self esteem, Anger, Grief, Loss and Behaviour issues.

My work with Adults covers many areas to include Anxiety, Stress, Depression, Self Harm, Suicidal thoughts, Worries and Grief. I have vast experience of working with adults in their 20’s, navigating life’s paths. Adult carers, those that are unwell themselves and supporting individuals in their darkest moments.

My work with families & small groups is based around communication and play for those with younger children. This allows children and adults to relax and interact with each other. These sessions are focused and will have a weekly purpose as agreed as a family unit. Setting up boundaries and learning how to communicate with each other are some of the areas we develop.

To have trained as an integrative counsellor fits what I believe, that one size does not fit all and nor should it.
