Counselling therapist MNCS (Accredited)

About me

I am a National Counselling Society accredited counsellor working online.

Using an integrated method of counselling and psychotherapy, I help people reduce anxiety, and find & grow their inner strength, to regain their ability to cope with the stresses and worries of traumatic events and everyday living experiences.  I help people to increase their self-esteem and confidence so that they feel able to deal with challenges.

My practice is informed by principals of depth analysis and Junglian psychotherapy, to support clients working with trauma, anxiety, depression and a range of different issues.

It’s my job as a counsellor therapist is to support you in directing and pacing your therapeutic process. This is achieved by building a safe and trusting relationship in which you feel to be able to talk about thoughts, experiences or emotions that might be difficult for you to express. I can support you, and be with you if you are experiencing painful and uncomfortable thoughts and emotions.

Please email me to arrange an initial telephone call or online meeting; a short conversation should help us both decide if we could work together. I am a compassionate and professional practitioner, and I look forward to having a chat about how we might work together.

I work with both adults and young people, to overcome struggles and feel better. As well as currently working in the counselling profession, I have over two decades of working in the education sector.
