About me

Anxiety, fear & hopelessness are some emotions that can linger after traumatic events, again I can help you overcome these symptoms.  I can also offer the "Rewind & Re-framing Technique" for PTSD and phobias.

Loss of a loved one or the diagnosis of a life limiting condition is a devastating event & the pain of this sometimes unbearable. Feelings of guilt, anger & grief can become apparent & each individual responds differently. I am here to help you through your concerns of the future. This area is a particular specialism for me.

As an Integrative Counsellor I offer different techniques from the Person Centred, Gestalt & Transactional Analysis approaches within a recognised framework.

I like to work with individuals from all walks of life & think of myself as a caring, nurturing Counsellor helping others find their inner self & be their own autonomous person. Using a creative side I can also work using different mediums & tools within sessions & have gained extra insight & knowledge through attending Creative workshops.
