About me

About me...

People from all walks of life decide to work with me to overcome various difficulties, a commonality being that they all want to make positive changes. I am a fully qualified, insured and experienced counsellor and psychotherapist and a senior accredited member of British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their code of ethics.

I work in an insightful and reflective way and I draw on my training and specialist experience in order to build a trusting, confidential and safe environment so that you feel contained and listened to. I have advanced counselling skills to help us work at a deep level, at a pace that is appropriate for you, exploring unconscious motives and needs. I am experienced in working with unresolved childhood issues as well as adult onset difficulties. I balance professionalism with warmth and acceptance.

In therapy...

You can talk about, and explore experiences that may be causing you pain, discomfort, stress and anxiety. You may also want to talk about things that are making you feel angry or unhappy. This is an opportunity to invest in yourself. To think about and explore issues relating to yourself and your concerns in a way that you often feel you cannot do with other people in your life. It is a place and time just for you, where you are not judged.
