Are you finding life overwhelming? Do you feel alone with your feelings and lost?
You do not have to deal with this alone. I am a fully qualified and experienced Counsellor dedicated to supporting clients through one to one counselling in making sense of and understanding their feelings so they are better equipped to cope with all life’s challenges.
I have experience working across all ages. In particular I have an extensive background in supporting male and female teenagers and young adults struggling with lives difficulties in their transitional years. This can be an overwhelming time in a young person’s life and talking to someone to understand the new challenges we face can help to add clarity and decrease anxiety, arming you with the necessary tools to deal with every day issues or problems.
I ensure to listen so you feel safe enough to explore your feelings and then feel able to move forward. Each person is an individual with their own unique attitudes, beliefs, behaviours and responses to the challenges presented to them. Therefore, I work with you to actively involve you in the direction of your counselling.
I offer a warm, comfortable, safe and non-judgmental environment, where you can speak freely in a confidential setting. Using the Person Centered approach I aim to build rapport with my clients and empathise using a compassionate and nurturing style. My aim is to help support in bringing back the happiness, confidence, normality and strength in lives.
The key to successful therapy is the relationship. Finding a counsellor that you feel comfortable with is extremely important. If you would like to get a better idea of the way I work, or if you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch to decide whether I am the right counsellor for you.
I am an empathetic and caring person and hope to work together with you so that you may live your life in a healthier, more positive way, realising your full potential.
Your confidentiality will be assured within the terms of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) of which I am a member.

MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority.
