About me

Are you ready to embrace change and regain your life?

I am a fully qualified Integrative Counsellor/psychotherapist.

Therapy can be a scary prospect, working alongside each other WE can build a safe and trusting environment. Vulnerability can become your strength, TOGETHER WE can explore thoughts and feelings that might be stopping you move forward and by reframing them, allow you to take control in an environment with empathy, honesty and non-judgement.

I have a wide range of experience working with females, males and young people.

Many people are trapped by some kind of trauma that they might not even recognise they are suffering from, counselling can get to the root cause of blocked trauma in a sensitive and supportive environment.

During our sessions you will gain clarify and lift the heavy fog that can drag you down from time to time. Together we will walk through your journey, I offer interventions from a wide range of counselling models such as Person Centred, Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Transactional Analysis and Solution Focused Brief Therapy.

You CAN change and live the life YOU want to, no matter how impossible that might seem right now. Together through the counselling process you will find solutions and gain a new depth of self-awareness. Taking elements of different concepts we can work together and explore the issues, thoughts, feelings and emotions that are stopping you move forward such as anxiety, depression, stress, panic, anger, addiction, relationship issues, abuse and many more. Through our therapeutic alliance we can also explore any self-esteem or body-confidence issues you may have without any fear of judgement.

Thank you for looking at my profile, please feel free to call me or email if you have any further questions.
