Psychotherapeutic Counsellor

About me

I am a qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and I am registered with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). Please feel free to email or call me.

I work to the principles of Relational Centred Counselling in a non-judgmental and empathic manner. This means that in our work together, we will explore your needs to help you understand yourself and your relationships better. I believe that you, as client, have the inner resources to make the life choices that are right for you.

I consider myself a down-to-earth and ethical therapist. I am deeply caring but can also change my style of working to best support you.

I am a LGBTQ+ affirmative therapist.

Training, qualifications & experience

I attained an Advanced Diploma in Relational Centred Counselling (Level 6).

I also attend regular Continued Professional Development workshops,  for example, working with Trauma, Shame, Attachment Theory and working with LGBTQ+ clients.
