About me

Counselling is a good way to help you to know yourself better, and to understand some of the thoughts and feelings you may be experiencing.

Sometimes life can be overwhelming; stress-ful or traumatic events happen, we lose someone or something we love, we can feel anxiety, panicky and afraid, or may use substances, self-harming, over/under-eating to help us feel better.

Life's experiences can affect different people in different ways. The Counselling I offer recognises you as an individual, and in a non-judgemental and supportive way I will seek to help you address the problems in life that may be overwhelming you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been working and studying in the field of mental health since 1998. I originally trained at Regents School of Existential Psychotherapy in London in 2004. I hold a Degree in Psychology (BAHons) and currently a Masters in Counselling (MA), and am a proud member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (MBACP).

I see individual clients in my private practice, and work as an affiliate therapist to other organisations; delivering training programmes, workshops, mediation and organisational support.

Further information

Agreement - Make Counselling work for you

Once you have decided to embark on counselling, we agree on a time and day to meet. We would usually meet at this same time every week for an hour.

We will also agree on how many sessions we will meet for. A lot of work can be done in six sessions, but it is possible to extend beyond that if you felt you needed more.

Aims - Get the most out of Counselling

In our introductory session, we will focus on what you hope to achieve from counselling. Sometimes you may not even be sure what your aim is. You just know that you want to feel happy, or to feel like your old self again, or a better version of your current self. Together we will try and make sense of your needs.

Change - Feel Better

Counselling creates a space in your life to be really listened to. You will be heard without judgement, without 'shoulds' and with care and compassion. This can help you change the way you feel about yourself and your situation and help you cope better with what life brings.
