About me

I offer talking, walking and creative therapy to help us understand your feelings and work to explore the underlying reasons, how you want things to change and how you might achieve that. If you are feeling depressed, anxious, stressed or challenged by life and your circumstances, talking your thoughts and feelings through can help provide emotional support and the space to explore how to cope. Perhaps you know exactly what you are struggling with, or you might not know why you are feeling a certain way, but how we feel is often a clue as to what is working well for us, or what might need to change to lead a fulfilling life.

I work alongside you to understand how you are experiencing life right now. I provide a warm, accepting and genuine therapeutic relationship for you to explore your thoughts and feelings.  I support you to lead your counselling in the direction that feels right for you. We talk about your thoughts, feelings and explore themes of responsibility, choice, freedom and meaning in life. I offer creative techniques to explore particular issues and bring a new perspective on what you are experiencing. I also offer walking therapy if you would like to take our sessions outdoors.


Not sure? Get in touch for a free initial meeting to explore how we might work together.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified integrative counsellor with a Level 4 Diploma accredited by the National Counselling Society.

I am particularly interested in outdoor and walking therapy, along with other creative ways of working, and have undertaken additional training in these areas.  Recently I have undertaken additional training in Existential Courage, Relational Depth and Telephone Counselling.

Outside of my counselling work, I have nearly ten years experience working alongside people with learning difficulties and/or autism. I bring this experience into my work and adapt my communication to meet the needs of a wide range of people.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access

I can adapt contracts and other information to meet any accessibility needs.

Availability

Currently - Tuesday mornings, Wednesday evenings, and Thursday daytimes.

PLEASE NOTE - due to the COVID-19 guidance, I am currently only offering telephone sessions.
