About me

I am a qualified counsellor with experience working with adults and young people.

There are many reasons for people to turn to counselling. Sometimes just having someone impartial to listen to you and the time to talk freely without judgement can be beneficial to help you gain clarity and understanding. I offer a safe and confidential space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings and I help you to gain insight and understanding, which will enable you to work through any difficulties you may have.

I am an integrative counsellor, which means I incorporate different models of counselling in order to meet the individual needs of my clients. My core approach is person centred therapy, however I use cognitive behavioural therapy and psychodynamic therapy depending on the needs of my clients.

My main area of interest is in anxiety disorders and low self-esteem. I believe that our beliefs and our thought patterns have a great impact on our experiences and emotional health, however by adapting a person’s belief system and learning new ways of thinking can promote positive change. I work with clients to understand their thoughts and beliefs and what effect it is having on their lives and help each individual to move forward.

I am a registered member of the BACP (MBACP) and I abide by the BACP ethical framework.
