About me

I am an experienced Integrative counsellor, who offers private counselling at an affordable fee in a safe and confidential environment. I am a registered (accredited) member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists, and adhere to their Code of Good Practice & Ethics. My approach of using the theories that are required for individual needs, will enable you to make sense of your experiences and difficulties, to make more informed choices that will enable you to develop a stronger sense of self.

My practice is in my home, which is set up to be a seperate welcoming and safe space, where you can relax and begin to trust someone who has no attachments to you, such as friends and family so enabling you to be your true self!

level 4 counselling students welcome!

I offer day and evening appointments to be arranged.
