About me

I am an Integrative Humanistic Counsellor offering individual, 50 minute therapy sessions for adults and adolescents tailored to the needs of each client in a compassionate and sensitive way. The sessions are confidential and a safe space to share openly and explore feelings, difficult issues, reflect and gain a better understanding of the self and emotional well-being that can help to inform change and improve self-worth and self-esteem. I work in a non-judgmental and respectful manner and the relationship that develops between us is essential throughout the work.

Counselling may help to achieve a more authentic way of being, as I believe if we can make sense of and understand how our past affects our present feelings and behaviours it may be possible to make changes to the way we live our lives and relate to others in the present.

Counselling may not be an easy process, sharing emotional and difficult situations and feelings can be daunting as well as finding ways to change which may bring mixed feelings, but with my support along the way, we will endeavour to find the way forward that is right for you.

Training, qualifications & experience

Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling

BA (Hons) Degree in Counselling

Certificate in Counselling Young People

Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), am fully insured.

I completed the Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling at Farnborough College and the BA(Hons) Degree in Counselling at Guildford College (University of Greenwich) and Certificate in Counselling Young People at No. 5 in Reading. My training is integrative drawing on various theoretical perspectives, integrating knowledge and skills from Person-centred, Existential, Gestalt and Psychodynamic theories.  Working with the here and now and reflecting on difficult issues and experiences from the past, I believe can lead to self-awareness and an understanding of learnt behaviour which can lead to change.

I have experience working professionally and empathetically with bereavement, loss, trauma, abuse, anxiety, depression, anger, self-harm, relationships issues, sex, sexuality, self-esteem, confidence and personal development, work issues, health and the emotional impact of this either in open-ended or short-term counselling.

I maintain regular and ongoing professional development and supervision in accordance with BACP Ethical Framework and regulations.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.
