As a qualified Counsellor I am able to help with issues such as anxiety, depression, bereavement and addictions amongst others. However, my Person-Centred approach does not exclude other problems or issues which may affect us at some time in our lives and I work with each individual to deal with the issues affecting them.
I am trained in an “Integrative” style which means I can choose from a range of ways of working. This could include, for example, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Gestalt, using elements of creative therapies or Transactional Analysis (TA). We can decide between us which approach works best for you.
Being a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I work within their standards of safe and ethical practice and I hope that each client will feel safe in the knowledge that their best interests are at the heart of everything that I and the BACP do.

- also known as person-centred counselling or client-centred counselling - is a humanistic approach that deals with the ways in which individuals perceive themselves consciously rather than how a counsellor can interpret their unconscious thoughts or ideas. The client is the expert in their own life experience not the therapist.
Created in the 1950s, the person-centred approach ultimately sees human beings as having an innate tendency to develop towards their full potential. However, this ability can become blocked or distorted by our life experiences - particularly those that affect our sense of value.
- or integrative counselling is a combined approach to psychotherapy that brings together different elements of specific therapies. Integrative therapists take the view that there is no single approach that can treat each client in all situations. Each person needs to be considered as a whole, and counselling techniques must be tailored to their individual needs and personal circumstances.
Essentially, integrative counsellors are concerned with tailoring therapy to their clients and not the client to the therapy
