About me

There are times when we struggle to cope with certain aspects of our lives, and we can feel sad and alone with our problems, talking to a counsellor can help. As a qualified Integrative Counsellor and member of the BACP, I believe a trusting supportive therapeutic relationship that is full of empathy and acceptance can provide a safe and collaborative place to process thoughts and feelings. I can help you explore your difficulties and look at how your past may be influencing your present, encourage and enable you to move forward with greater insight and awareness which in turn can help with self-acceptance and change. I work with a variety of issues including anxiety, stress, depression, relationship issues, bereavement & loss, low self-esteem, low self-confidence, self-worth, trauma and attachment and have experience in counselling adults and young people and also those with Asperger’s Syndrome.

As an Integrative counsellor I draw from various theoretical approaches including Humanistic approaches like Person Centered and Gestalt, Psychodynamic and some CBT aspects along with the use of creative methods to aid in therapeutic exploration, all to suit you and your needs. The most important aspect of my counselling practice is the relationship co-created between therapist and client.
