I welcome people from all walks of life to a space where they can feel at ease and have the freedom to talk about any aspect of themselves, or life experiences, causing difficulty or concern.
Based in Haverhill and central Cambridge , I offer counselling to individuals on a short or long term basis.
Building an open and collaborative partnership is central to my work and reflects a respect for individuality whilst valuing each persons ability to know what is right for them.
I provide a warm, accepting and encouraging environment, offering time and space in which there is the opportunity for clarity and understanding to grow. With new awareness comes the possibility for change, enabling confidence in identifying the beginnings of a way forward that feels comfortable.
My approach draws from Person-centred and Humanistic therories and holds the counselling relationship at its heart. This is underpinned by a deep belief in the unique potential of individuals and their abilities to shape their lives.
I have 25 years experience of working with young people and adults. Initially, this was in the education sector and later working with charities supporting people who experienced domestic abuse. I continue to have a connection in this area of work.
I am a registered member of BACP and have been a full-time counsellor for 7 years working with charities and in private practice.
I have experience in the following areas:-
- Low self -esteem
- Relational difficulties
- Loss of confidence
- Grief and loss
- Life transitions
- Emotional, physical or sexual abuse
- Creative counselling
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.
