About me

I am a current member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) with extensive counselling experience in one to one, group and family therapy. I use a variety of counselling methods providing counselling in areas such as trauma/relationships/substance misuse/anxiety/bereavement/ PTSD/low self esteem and addiction and much more...

I am trained integratively, and I draw upon a range of therapeutic approaches to find a way of working that best suits your needs and personality. I provide an environment that is accepting, empathic, and open, a safe space for you to use as you choose.

I am also a trained clinical supervisor and provide private clinical supervision for qualified counsellors and students training to be counsellors.
