About me

Couples counselling, marital counselling, relationship therapy. Call it what you will, I had wanted to train to make this my career for many years. I was happy to finally find myself in a position to begin my counselling in 2011, and I haven’t looked back.

We could all use a hand from time to time and I offer a safe, confidential counselling service for adults. I am friendly and approachable within my professional service. Working with relationships and helping people make change is massively rewarding to me, as I see relationships (in whatever form) as the key to long term contentment.

I also work with individuals; whether you are facing a life changing decision, suffering from anxiety or depression, or just feel like things are not quite right, I can help you. I am experienced in working with a wide range of problems and will work with you to explore where you’re at and where you want to be.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Relationship Therapy and I am fully Relate trained to work with families, couples and individuals in all areas of relationships.

My work and training has also taken me into working with children and young people in schools and I hold a Certificate in Therapeutic Counselling Skills for Children and Teenagers.

My practice integrates various approaches, using mainly psychodynamic and systemic. I also achieved a Certificate in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Skills to enable me to adopt a Cognitive Behavioural Approach where required.

I am a Registered Member of the National Counselling Society and I adhere to their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I regularly attend continuous professional development training and am supervised by a qualified supervisor as part of my professional status.
