About me

I am an experienced Accredited Counsellor and Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I adhere to their ethical framework. I offer individual integrative counselling and Psychodynamic psychotherapy both short term and long term covering a wide range of mental health problems.

About Counselling and how I can help

Talking therapy gives you the space to explore your feelings in a safe and non judgemental setting. I will try to help you to recognise how past and present difficulties, beliefs, ruminating thoughts and feelings that may have been buried in your unconscious mind can continue to influence your current difficulties.

Exploring one's self can sometimes be a difficult but equally a rewarding experience. I hope throughout your journey of self-discovery will help you by enhancing your wellbeing and to also bring positive change into your life.

The therapeutic relationship that we share together on your journey is also extremely important, I hope that you will experience me as a warm, empathic, real and genuine person and feel comfortable in the knowledge that all that you share is private and confidential offering a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship.
