I offer counselling for individuals with a warm, caring approach to problem solving and healing. As an experienced, counsellor, my approach is accepting and non-judgmental, allowing you time and space to be heard, and explore more about yourself, and the issues you are facing - at your own pace; most often bringing about lasting and positive results.
I realise that counselling can seem really daunting, especially if you have not undertaken it before and so please don't hesitate to drop me an email or call with any questions you might have. I also offer a free preliminary session to allow time for both of us to discover if we feel happy about working with each other, so I look forward to hearing from you to make an initial appointment with no ongoing obligation.
Training, qualifications & experience
BSc (Hons) Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy
I am a qualified and accredited counsellor in an integrative-relational approach where the relationship and collaborative approach is paramount in building trust and a safe place to explore next steps and ways forward.
Diploma in Individual and Group Supervision for Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
As a supervisor I aim to foster curiosity, encourage relationship, and create a safe enough place for us both to learn, make mistakes, challenge and grow without fear of judgement, where the safety and welfare of clients and the quality of the service they receive is central. If you are looking for a supervisor then please do call me with any questions you may have.
