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.

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.

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.
