About me


Welcome


I am a registered BACP counsellor working from a central location in Cambridge.

I offer a welcoming, calm and confidential space where I hope you will feel at ease and have the freedom to talk about any aspect of yourself, or life experiences, which are important to you.

The heart of my counselling practice is Person-centred and reflects the value I place on the uniqueness of individuals and the respect I have for their ability to know what is right for themselves.

The Person-centred approach to counselling allows us to use our own understanding of experiences to facilitate self-discovery and self-acceptance. Non-directive in essence, the sessions enable a space for clarity where we can find the best solutions and make appropriate changes in our lives.

Our relationship will be central to our time together and I offer my commitment to building a warm, accepting and collaborative partnership with you.

To support our work, I bring to our partnership a caring and empathic nature grown from many varied counselling and life experiences. My aim is to provide an environment in which you will be able to gain better understanding of yourself, connect with your internal resources and clarify the beginnings of a way forward that feels right for you.
I have an interest in the use of creative materials and mindfulness and offer this alongside my knowledge of other counselling approaches where it may be helpful.

I have spent time with adults and young people from varied backgrounds and life circumstances who have engaged with counselling for a wide range of personal issues. I have worked in education, family support and charity organisations, including 3 years working with a domestic abuse charity, 3 years with Centre 33 in Cambridge and 4 years with a counselling charity in Suffolk.

I am able to offer short term or longer term counselling and have experience in the areas below:-

  • Relational difficulties
  • Bereavement
  • Depression
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Low self esteem / loss of confidence
  • Life transitions
  • Emotional, physical and sexual abuse
  • Creative counselling


Next steps…

If you feel comfortable with what you have read and want to get more of a sense of me and what I offer, please make contact, I will be happy to answer any questions you may have. After this, if you feel you would like to meet me, we can arrange an initial session. There is no commitment to continue with sessions if you feel we are not a good fit.


All contact will be dealt with in confidence.
