About me

I believe that a good counsellor is someone who understands your past, believes in your future and accepts you just the way you are. 

I am a member of the BACP (The British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy), and work within their Ethical Framework. I attend regular supervision and professional development training to enhance my therapeutic abilities. 

My aim is to provide a professional, confidential, empathic, non-judgmental and supportive environment where we can explore why you have come for counselling. 

As a qualified Integrative Counsellor, I am able to draw on a range of different theories to vary my approach in order to support your individual needs. 

I have experience working with individuals, couples, adolescents and have gained considerable experience of working with LGBT clients (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual & Transgender). 

I have worked in a Child & Adolescent Family Centre for 10 years and worked in a pastoral role in a secondary and primary school setting for 18 years. I am 'Enhanced CRB' checked.
