About me

The counselling sessions I offer aim to support people to develop greater self-awareness to their difficulties by offering an empathic, compassionate, safe place to explore whatever is troubling them. Utilising both counselling skills and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) can support people to become aware of negative and dysfunctional patterns of thought which often result in depressive and anxious mood states and subsequent reduced behavioural activation.

I am passionate about supporting people to grow and develop themselves by exploring their limiting beliefs and conditions of worth to achieve an authentic sense of self. Dissolving conditions of worth have the potential to increase people's self-worth and self-value, providing a framework for overcoming depression and anxiety. These debilitating conditions are often present when someone has developed feelings of insecurity from attachment difficulties in childhood.

The therapeutic relationship is the framework of the counselling sessions that I offer. Having empathy, unconditional positive regard and being genuine with clients supports them to develop greater trust in themselves, overcoming feelings of insecurity, shame and guilt enabling the client to reach their fullest potential leading to a happier, more fulfilled life that has meaning and purpose.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have achieved a Level 4 Diploma In Therapeutic Counselling which consisted of completing a 3 year supervised placement at No22 Counselling Agency in Maidenhead. In addition to my counselling qualification I completed a 3 year Advanced Diploma in Mindfulness and Meditation. The qualification consisted of modules in Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Trauma Incident Reduction (TIR). I have delivered the 8 week Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) to staff at several schools and private clients.
